Starfield affect using graphics

I would like to create a star field but would like to use images of our product to replace the stars. Any recommendations how this can be accomplished using Premier CS6 / After Effects?

It's very easy to make a starfield in After Effects using Red Giant's Trapcode Particular Plugin . If you are not interested in buying the plugin the go for CC Particle World (Effects>Simulation>CC Particle World) whichcomes with AE.

In Particular there is already a preset for Starfield which after tweaking a little bit will give you the desired result.

For CC Particle World, go through these links:

Kevin Camp has explained how to use Custom Particles.
