Raise One Image on Another
First post, thanks for the forum and help in advance.

I wasn't sure how to phrase this one so here's the general idea of what I want.

I have a picture of a planet, what I want to do is put a raised icon on top of the planet picture. I want the image to be transparent, so it'd basically just raise the section of the planet corresponding with where I put the second image.

The best thing I can think of is almost like mountains or a continent whose outline based on an icon I have as a separate image.

Thanks in advance

RE: Raise One Image on Another
hm I hadn't actually found an image, I just thought of the idea for a wallpaper I'm designing. I thought it'd be cool to have a planet that has a continent that looks like the Bodhi Linux icon. I guess the best I can do is something like this:

You can clearly see depth, so I'd just want the depth to match the icon of Bodhi Linux (which I have an image for). Another option is to "sink in" the Bodhi Linux icon into the planet, almost like it's an empty body of water
