Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating terrain, part of Creating Dreamscapes in Photoshop: 1.
This image is going to start with this vacation shot taken way down in Los Cabos Mexico, and…it makes a great rocky terrain for our planet.…I'm going to go in there and isolate those rocks by selecting this sky up here, and I'm…going to Shift to select all of the sky, including that little area down in between there.…And I'm going to make sure that these little birds are also selected, so I'm going to Shift-select…them with the Marquee tool so they will be completely selected, there.…
Now that the entire sky area is selected I'm going to Inverse that selection and send those…rocks and water into a whole new layer. I say New > Layer Via Cut.…So now, this is going to be the basis of my planet.…Now, it's going to be a waterless planet, not going to have a beautiful sea like this…so I have another shot that I'm going to use, a little shot taken of a dry lake bed in Bodega Bay.…Now this is going to be perfect for our little ground plane.…
So I'm going to take this image and drag it right on top of this one, there it is.…
