the short cut Shift+cntl+N. Select Elliptical Marquee tool,
then select fixed size 5inch X 5 inch and draw a round and
filled it with white using paint packet tool or Edit -> Fill.

stroke with the following values.

starting point and hold shift key and click the end
point.

Step 13

Now merge all layers (hold cntl key
then select the layers then cntl+E to merge) except
background and shadow layer.Then delete the
background layer.


Step 14

This image is my image collection and I used this grass to the football's background.


Step 15

Now select the grass layer and then send it to back to the football layer.(Go to Layer -> Arrange -> send backward)


Step 16

select the football layer and then go to Select -> Load selection -> press ok.


Step 17

Now the ball is in load selection, then apply the gradient to the following values (see the image below).


Step 18

Then adjust the football's color.


Step 19

Select the all black color area in ball's outside using Magic wand tool.


Step 20

It's a final and important step of this tutorial. select all the outside black parts of the ball then go to Filter -> Artistic -> Plastic warp, then apply the following values. (see the step)


Step 21

This is the final image.Hope you all enjoy this tutorial.Take care.
