This is a work in progress. After several experiments with Photo Impressions (not an advanced program by any means) I decided to combine what I had learned after a couple of hours and actually attempt to create something. I used my phone camera to take a photo of a rock I bought recently. The rock has a very planet-like appearance and that's why I bought it. It's called akaman in Japanese and is similar to jasper. I touched up the photo of the rock a bit - colouring, cloning and painting over parts that reflected light from my window and room (you can still see parts that need more work). Then I cut out the sphere and pasted on my photo of Uluru, which you can find in the rocks sub-gallery. I had to trim the rock a bit and then clone parts of Uluru and paint the cloned parts over the bottom of the rock in order to make it look like there was a moon or planet coming up from behind. Otherwise it looked like a round rock with the bottom cut off pasted on a photo of Uluru. Then I altered the colour of Uluru a little to try to do something different, and finally I played around with the sky by painting parts of it. I wanted a more realistic atmospheric effect like some people can do with more advanced programs but so far that doesn't seem possible. I tried to create a cloud over the planet/moon but the effect is weak and unsatisfactory. I will try to play around some more. For now, this is as far as I have come. Expect to see more photos of my planet rock later.
