  1. Thank you very much is a great job and I was surprised by the castle, since it belongs to my city Almadén (Ciudad Real) has been an incredible detail.
    regards

  2. Thanks, love this tutorial, and thanks for posting. Explains a lot of techniques. One thing I would add is to delete (or mask or cover) the stars that are showing thru from behind the moon. Unless they are meteors, they would not be visible behind the opaque moon.

  3. what's a spatter brush?
    (:: - Step 55
    Create new layer. (Hey! Without making clipping mask :]) Choose spatter 59 px brush #baf3f0 color. Draw on the edges of trees.)

  4. In Step 4, you say "At adjustment layer make mask". What does this mean? I'm pretty new to this, so any help would be great!

  5. Hi, can someone please explain to me in details how step 4 and 5 was done? After I made a new mask layer and colored in red the sky area, I then proceed to paste the sky stock. That sky stock image appeared as a new layer and not on the mask layer called "Sky - mmtEvr6." How do you merge the sky layer with the landscape to appear as one image?

    Thank you.

    1. For merging two layers, select both layers and press Ctrl + E.. Hope this helps..

  6. Hi Monika,

  9. I think this could have all been a lot shorter now that i've read through the whole thing.

    For one, hyper links, use them and just say repeat this process such as the saturation, hue, contrast and brightness factors, as well, it's really hard to learn this tutorial if you were a beginner, saying to just "mask" something is far easier said than done if you have no idea more effective ways of doing the like with the quick mask or the layer mask.

    I hate the ship, it's like heres rocks and trees and everything natural not a single bit of water showing, oh and here's a ship. I took it out of mine on personal choice but it's up to you.

    Last thing I'd say is the rocks you created, they look far more detailed then just using a brush to create them I'd say you took multiple layers using different sections of the rock each time and layered them on top of each other to give more depth to the photo, if you want nice crisp clean jagged rocks try using the lasso tool and deleting the brush layer piece by piece.

  10. Fantastic graphics work..Have to ask all of our designers to follow your articles..Thank you so much..

  11. What a great tuto! Trying to be better in photo manipulation this was really helpfull.
    Just having a weird result on step 30 when trying to add lights to the stone, it needed to be set at 5% opacity not to have those white mass...
    And also step 56 I'm not able to have something like yours, I just have this white edge as if it wasn't well cut out, took me time to fix it but nevermind, I learnt a lot thank you! (and sorry for my bad english ahah)
