Nice one! if you want more realism/blending on the planet maybe some shadowing to add some volume, the old western font I don't think its the best for this case being planets and space... adding some background could help to make the letters more visible, like a light for example.

I made a 2-minute example of what I said.

Nice work. I had seen the TUTORIAL for this a year or so ago and wondered if it had been updated using smart objects. I haven't created one yet, but seems like all you would need to do is convert the starting grid into a smart object, make a copy, and spherize. This way you won't have to re-create the sphere (and copy for reflection) each time you want to add new images.

Edit: The reflection would usually be used for a surface. To me it looks odd to have the reflection when it's floating in space.

Hi IAM5AM
I have created a layer where hopefully I can just exchange images as he grows. It is a good tutorial I am still very much a newbie and enjoyed doing this
Cheers

I wrote a script that creates a photosphere like this. It is limited to a 6x6 matrix, but it is easy enough to change these values. The background is black but it could be transparent.
You just have to prepare 36 square photos in a folder before launching the script. It was possible to cut a 1:1 square in a 3:2 rectangle, but the subject is not always in the middle. It is better if the user resizes his photos by himself.
You can download this script here if you want to try it. Your feedback will be appreciated.
Thank you mcgregorbart for that excellent work.

Thank you. It was a pleasure to work on this idea.
If you download the script to day, you will find a new version with the following modifications :
- you can choose the dimensions of the square matrix (from 2 to 8 lines and columns),
- a shadow on the sphere for the 3D was added,
- your work will be save without background (transparency) in PNG format. Now you can add the background you want.
