Photoshop Tutorials: Create the World in Sixty Seconds (and without drawing a circle!)
11 September 2007

1.From the menu bar, select File/New, and make the file size about 200 pixels by 200 pixels. Make sure that the file is in RGB mode.

2.Select a light blue for the foreground color, (I used #cff8fc) and a darker blue for the background color (I used #010d62). Of course, you can select any colors that you prefer, but for best results select two colors that have a high constrast.

3.Select Filters > Render > Clouds.

4.Behold! The heavens appear within your file. The clouds filter uses the foreground and background colors you have chosen to create the clouds in your file. If you don't like the first effect you get with this filter, hit Ctrl + F on Windows, Command + F on the mac, which will reapply the filter and give a slightly different result each time.

5. Return to the Filter menu. Select Render > Lighting Effects.

6. In the Light Effects menu, change the shape of the ellipse to a circle that is centered within your file. Use the Default Spotlight setting, but change the Narrow setting to 39.

Voila! You have created the world in six easy steps.

I read your blog and thought I could tell you about something else which would be useful for seeing maps and directions in India.

I am writing to tell you about, a free interactive maps and directions portal for all India. See the map of connaught place, new delhi, get directions in mumbai from nariman point to juhu airport, and find nearby ATMs in kormangala, bangalore.

As a company and individual enthusiasts, we dream only of solving the problem of reliable directions and navigation for India. For your blog specifically, you can map enable it by using our youtube-style embeddable maps, and links to specific searches (of maps, directions, local and eLocation) on MapmyIndia.

Do give us feedback, suggestions, or get involved yourself by mailing me back at or

And if you find the different services useful, we would be grateful to you for writing and telling your readers about us.

Warm Regards,
Tarun Gupta
The MapmyIndia Team
For directions in India, just search print and go with
