    Sorry for probably a basic question, just learning this tool. I have an
    image of the world from space where I want to create a circle around,
    but having the "back" half of the circle not seen, somewhat like the
    rings of Saturn?

    I have tried using the circle tool then rubber stamp to "remove" the
    circle but the results, well my results are not all that great and I
    am thinking there must be a better way.

    Put the circle on a new layer, then mask or delete it. If you put the
    circle on its own layer, you will not need to rubber stamp--the globe
    will still be beneath the circle.

    Start with a new layer and create your circle on that.
    Go back to the planet layer and use the magic wand to select the black
    Back to the circle layer. Layer menu > add layer mask > reveal selection.
    Double-click the layer mask and use the eraser tool to erase the half of the
    globe that you want the ring to cover.
