This topic will help you learn to make a Solar Eclipse in Photoshop. Solar Eclipse is a very beautiful astrological event. Let's find out how to create it.

Part 1 of 3: Making the background

1. Open Adobe Photoshop and press Ctrl+N.Select International paper as preset and A4 as the size then click OK. Click on Image menu then go to Image Rotation and select 90 degree CW to rotate the canvas 90 degree clock wise.

*.It is not necessary to choose a A4 size canvas only, you can set the size of your canvas as per your need.

2. Select the Paint Bucket Tool and choose foreground color as black.Fill the canvas with the black color.

3. Select the brush tool.Right click on the canvas and click on the brush settings icon. Choose Assorted Brushes.

*.In Assorted Brushes, choose the brush which looks like stars.

4. Set the brush size to very small.Then click everywhere you want to make stars.

*.Set the brush size at very small for showing stars that are very far and a little bigger size for showing comparatively nearer stars. This will make your background look real.

5. Select the Blur Tool.Set its strength at around 30% and move it over whole background to make the stars look a little bit blur. Then set its strength at 50% and move it over those stars which you want to show far.

Part 2 of 3: Making the Eclipse

1. Make a new layer for the Eclipse by pressing Ctrl+Shift+N.

2. Select the Elliptical Marquee Tool.Hold down the Shift key and make a circle at the center of the canvas.

3. Select the Paint Bucket Tool and choose white as foreground color.Fill the circular selected region with white color.

*.Deselect it and then right click the layer in which you have created the sun. Choose the Blending Options.

*.Select the Outer Glow and set Spread around 5 and Size around 170.

4. Create a new layer.This layer is for the Moon which is not visible during a Solar Eclipse.

5. Again select the Elliptical Marquee Tool and make a circle of the same size as the sun.Fill black color in it.

*.Position it in a way that a little bit of the sun is visible at the top left.

6. Deselect it and right click the layer of Moon and choose the Blending Options.
*.Select the Inner Glow and set choke to 0 and size between 20 to 30. By now it will be looking like a Solar Eclipse.

Part 3 of 3: Final Touch

1. Got to the Layer window and select all the three layers by holding down Ctrl key and click the layer.Then right click and select Merge Layers.

2. Click on Filter and go to Render and choose Lens Flare.In the image shown in the Lens Flare Dialog box click on the top left of the sun and choose 105mm Prime and set Brightness between 35 and 40.
