I have just a simple image of a bullet in 2D and I just want to add a glow to it. How can I do it

I think the best way would be to use shaders but I personally don’t know a lot in this field,

I would suggest trying to add Bloom to the scene,
But it will make every bright part glow as well, so it may not be what you want,
you can still do it following this short tutorial, it will also give you a preview of the effect:

I don’t know it doesn’t work the way I want to ! For example my player sprite glows but when I fire bullets then they don’t glow. Also the particles glow when I destroy an enemy but for some enemies they don’t ! Not sure why.
