  1. This tutorial is absolutely terrible! It does not explain how to do most of it and just assumes that you know how to.

    1. I don't think the link is broken, it looks like the picture has been removed from that site :(

  2. I have problems with step 2... "merge all transparent layers." I can not do that!...How to remove black background photo of the planet? I mean, the planet without the black background

  3. Why i can't see whole tutorial ?
    i can't see more that step 6.
    I can't see ships, asteroids, and high light at middle.
    Help me. :P

  4. yeah, I'm stuck at Step 2, how do you hide the black background. The source file I get is a .jpg file, not .psd file.
