the way this works is simple: you see a picture that NASA or another individual has taking on the internet and you try to recreate that in space engine. it can also be a wallpaper if you wish but there are some costs to recreating the wallpapers. 
It CAN'T be Advanced photoshopped. By advanced I mean: 

Tools that crop out parts for editing in only spots.
special effects such as smoke, liquefying, reflections. 
adding layers such as taking another picture online and inserting it.

It is appreciated that you do not do these things as that would be Cheating!

Here's a list of all the thing you CAN use for the image:

Light
Contrast
Exposure
Highlights
Shadows
Saturation
Tint
Warmth
Clarity
Vignette
Blur (if you have it)

These are all the things that are accepted in the image replication.
And Yes of course! pressing SHIFT-F2 on a body to edit its size, orbit, light, ect. Is allowed!

To give an example I will show you what I did in the image dump.

That is all :D. if there are any questions I will try my best to answer!
Have fun! :)

Original photo doesn't look right for me. Taking into account the lighting angle on Io and Jupiter:
- shadow must be elongated, not round.
- it cannot be Io's shadow, its shadow cone must pass almost parallel to the image plane.

your correct, the original image you are viewing is CGI. but that's where the whole "wallpapers" thing comes in. photoshopping it like that is not allowed BUT if you can edit the orbits and stuff in space engine and at last get somewhat of a good replication then that's okay for me.  :)

Also one your upload your pictures I notice that they are rather small. if you click Add files and wait tell it loads. then click Place inline the picture you have opened should increase to its full resolution and size once it's uploaded. :)

I'm going nuts with these. This is my attempt at the Jupiter picture. I couldn't get the shadow to work but I'm still happy with the way it turned out.
