Yet another technique that I've had good luck with is to create a
repeating vertical gradient across the window and then convert it to
polar coordinates. For example:
1. Select the Black & White Gradient
2. In the Gradient Tool Dialog select:
2.1 Custom Gradient
2.2 Linear (or bi-linear)
2.3 Sawtooth or Triangular repeats
3. Click and drag in the image window to get as many stripes as you
want rays. Make sure the stripes run vertically.
4. Image/Filters/Distorts/Polar Coords
Presto! Raidal rays.
