My first ever tutorial!! Hope you like it!!
STEP 1= open a new document 1000 px / 1000 px and fill it with white
STEP 2= create a new layer (put it in the top and name it orb), make a round shape in the middle and apply these layer effects
STEP 3= create a new layer (put it in the top and name it map), place the map you want to use and apply these layer effects, reduce the opacity to 90%. Then apply the filter/distort/sferize amount 20% only in the orb surface.
STEP 4= make a new layer (put it in the top and name it ellipse), create an ellipse and fill it with white, then reduce the fill to 0%
STEP 5= make a new layer (put it in under the layer orb and name it back shadow), use a brush with the following settings and scale it like in the picture
STEP 6= make a new layer (put it under the layer ellipse and name it sparkle), paint with white some dots only over the map, with a brush with these settings. Set the opacity to 70% and set “overlay”
STEP 7= duplicate the layer sparkle (place it under the other layer), blur it with gaussian blur with these settings. Set the layer to “difference”
STEP 8= make a new layer (put it under the layer map and name it sparkle back), paint with white some dots only outside the map, with a brush with the same settings in the step 6 but with a diameter 21px. Set the layer to ”overlay”
STEP 9= duplicate the sparkle back layer (place it below the other layer) and use a motion blur with these settings. Set the layer to “overlay”
STEP 10= make a new layer (name it clouds and put it under the sparkle back copy layer) with the size of the orb and apply filter/render/clouds; apply the same filter a few times with ctrl+F. Set the layer to “hard light”
STEP 11= change the color as you want with a new filter adjustement layer (hue and saturation) and you are done!!
