A List of Actions Contained in the Download and How to Use Them
Important: These actions are set to overwrite the original photos. Make sure to work from a copy of your files or add a command to save to a different folder.
Star Trails Long
A simple action that can be used for star stacking photos or a time-lapse video. See my tutorial for how I made this and some tricks on using it.
Important – you must begin by opening the first photo in the sequence, selecting all, copy, and close (Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C, and Ctrl-W in Windows). You can then run the action on the photos you want to process.
Star Trails Short
This is exactly the same as the Star Trails Long action except the star trails dim slowly as the stars move. I usually prefer this effect. The tutorial mentioned above will show you how to adjust the trail length.
