I don't know how much you know about photoshop, I'm assuming you know the basics.

I will number my steps based on the steps in the tutorial, but I'll explain in more detail for each step.  So after completing each step, you should have the same image as the image in the tutorial step.

Steps:

1 Create a new layer, name it "layer 1", then Select the Elliptical Marquee Tool, hold down shift and draw  your circle, holding down shift will make it a perfect circle.  Choose a gradient with two colors, dark blue and a light blue as in image 1 of devianart tutorial (doesn't have to be exact colors) then choose Radial Gradient, here is an image of where the option is: http://img57.exs.cx/img57/6254/one1.gif  now, just apply the gradient to the circle.

2.  Right click on "layer 1" and go to blending options.  click on Inner Glow, from there click on the color box beside the gradient, and choose the color black, change the blending mode so it's multiply, now you need to change the size. the size depends on how big the circle you created, so change the size until it looks similiar to the image in step 2 at devianart,  here is the settings you should have changed:  http://img70.exs.cx/img70/3370/two1.gif, once you're done click ok.

3. Create a new layer, change the blending mode to overlay, then use a soft round brush (blurs on the edges) and try to paint something similar to image 3 at devianart.

4. If the brush strokes are not smooth as in the image, then go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blue Then change the radius until you have a good blur.

5. Create another layer, and then use the paint bucket tool and fill ithe layer with white, just click any where you don't have to make a selection, now change the blending mode of the layer to Overlay,

6.  Make sure your foreground color is black, and your background color is white.  Using the same layer as in step 5, go to fileter>render>difference in clouds.

To change the color, select "layer 1", then go to image>adjustment>hur/saturation, and then just move the hue left or right.

Good Luck!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes, the whole canvas is suppose to be filled with clouds, but if you have set the layer to Overlay, as mentioned in step 5, the clouds would only appear on the circle.

To draw another circle exactly as the first is pretty hard, so once you create the selection in step 1, go to Select>Save Selection...  Name the selection anything you want, and click OK.  Now just finish the rest of the tutorial.  Once your done, go to Select>Load Selection... And choose from the Channel drop down list the name of the selection you have created above, and click Ok.  The selection should appear, now since there are more then one layer, if you just use the regular copy you will only copy the selected layer.  So to copy  whatever that appears in the selection, go to Edit>Copy Merged, just paste it now, and your done!
