How do I get stars on a black background?

I don't know if I am being really stupid here you can tell me if I am, but how the hell do you get stars that go on a black background? I know it's a pretty random question but my brain is seriously running on empty.

They are for reviews so I will need upto 5 stars in a row.

Cheers

If you have photoshop you can select a star with the magic wand and it would probably select the outline. Just cut it and paste it onto a black background, then add stars as you please.

Otherwise, I guess you could have a look around on the web, there are bound to be other sites with black backgrounds and stars :)

I was using photoshop and just basically lost patience with it so I posted on here, not that familiar with it :) I also looked around on the net for a bit as well. Had no patience at all yesterday, will give it another go today.

Cheers Sean :wink:

Make rectangle box.

Make background black.

Use custom shape tool and hold shift to get proportionate star.

Fill star with desired color.

Duplicate star 4 more times.
