step.9. use shortcut shift-command-I to reverse the selection. click the layer mask tool button. What appears is what you will be copying and scaling down to create your vortex.

The layer mask button is the the icon that looks like a reversed Japan flag. (circle in rectangle at the bottom of your layers window.

Step. 10. add guides. Go to your rulers and click and drag light blue colored lines to the upper left corner that will make your cover act like a window. (See image)

step. 11. Copy the layer. Then drag the layer copy to the corner. It will snap to the guides. Then hit command-T to scale down your image.

step 12 Drag the lower right hand corner until it fits snugly into the cover space. Remember to hold down the shift button so it will scale porportionally. If you don’t, you will ruin the illusion.
