I was browsing through deviantart start orbs and came across a link someone had put about creating a start orb in photoshop with out the need for a 3rd party conversion to a windows ready bitmap.

Don't know if this has already been given but I found it very helpful.

Hope putting this link here is not a problem.

For my first orb I took a wheel and tyre from a nascar and converted it into an orb.

I would put a pic up but I don't know how too.
