"First, we need to collect some stock photos. Head on over to Stock.xchng and grab this photo of a castle.Create a new canvas that is no smaller than 1440x900 pixels. We want something rather large to work with so that we have plenty of room to mess around. Open the image of the castle as a new layer onto the canvas. Name the new layer "castle." Get out the eyedropper tool and select a sample color of the sky.
