Hi. This is Marty from Blue Lightning TV.
I'm going to show you how to make this
ice-encrusted, frozen, planet.
I provided this frosty,
ice image for you to download.
Its link is located in the video description
or project files. Open a new document
by going to "File" and "New". Make the size
1920 by 1080 pixels
and a resolution of 150 pixels per inch.
To fit it onto your screen,
press Ctrl + 0 on a PC or
Cmd + 0 on a Mac. If your foreground
and background colors
aren't black and white respectively,
click the small, double-box icon
or press "D" on your keyboard.
We'll fill it with the foreground color
by pressing Alt + Delete on a PC or
Opt + Delete on a Mac. Next,
we'll create a star field. Go to "Filter",
"Noise" and "Add Noise".

Blur it by .3 pixels.
Open your "Levels" window
by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + L. Slide your

and press and hold
"Shift" as you drag it up onto the tab
of the star field.
Without releasing your mouse or pen,
drag it down
onto the image and release.

it straight down to approximately this much.
