|Making a planet|
|Make a new document, 1000×1000 with black background.|
|Let’s add some space stars. Go to Filters>Noise>add Noise. In the pop-up menu put a reasonable amount, like 10-15%. Be sure to check Gaussian and Monochromatic. Hit OK.|
|To make the stars, go to Image>Adjustments>Brightness/Contrast. Move the sliders like in the example. Play with values until you reach your preferred amount of stars. Now you have a nice star space.|
|Create a new layer. Then use the eliptical marquee tool, and while holding down shift, create a circle selection. Make it big. Fill the selection with black.|
|Now go to Filters> Render>Difference Clouds. If not satisfied with the result, hit CTRL+F (Command +F on macintosh) again and again until you reach the correct image.|
|Then go to Image->Adjustments->Levels, or hit CTRL+L (Cmd+L on Mac). Move the center and right slider towards the left, like in my example:|
|Now go to Filter->Sharpen-> Unsharp Mask and use the values: Amount: 500%, Radius: 2.5 and Treshhold: 10. I remember, you can play with these values as you want.|
|Now go to Filters>Distort>Spherize and put the amount 100%.|
|Your image should look like this:|
| Then go to Image->Adjustments->Color Balance Apply the following color levels:
Shadows: +100 / 0/ -100
Midtones: +100 / 0/ -100
Highlights: +70 / 0/ -15
|Go again to Filters>Sharpen>Unsharp Mask and use these values: Amount: 275%, Radius: 4.5 and Treshold 40 levels.|
|Finnally duble click on your Sun layer to bring up the Layer Style dialogue. Check the Inner Shadow and Outer glow (at outer glow you can put the values from my example or you simply can play).|
|Here is the final image:|

|Create a classic painting|
|This tutorial is intended for those who have Photoshop CS or CS2Open a landscape image, whatever you want. This
is my image.
| First time, go to Image> Adjustments>Shadow/Highlights and in the pop-up menu that will appear move the slider of
Shadows to maximum (100%) and the Highlights one to minimum ( 0%) like in the example.The image may look a little too bright in places but that doesn’t matter.
|Next go to Filter>Stylize>Find Edges. All the edges will now become outlined.|
|Choose Edit>Fade Find Edges (This option will only be avaliable at this point, if you do anything else between Find Edges and Fade, you won’t be able to do this). Change the blending mode to Luminosity. This will restore the colors (Don’t close the dialog yet). Reduce the Opacity
slider until you are happy with the result. I used 44% for this image.
|There you have it, in 3 easy steps we have created a classic painting. Here is the final:|
