i obviously did something wrong.. lol.. first prob was when i got to the land layer and it says to do ctr+click on the water layer.. i did that and when i tried to spherize it said it was blank... so ctr+click.. does nothing for me lol.. so what i did was copy the water layer and name it land.. but im pretty sure thats what caused most of the problem.. im useing photoshop 6.0 if that helps any 1


it could make a goos ice planet though? lol
