I know it's an old one, but it still works.
Perhaps you'd prefer a newer one? Alright then, try this tutorial: [Link]

First link was little confusing so i jumped to the second one.But the second tutorial was about text layer(because it have path option but image dont have path opt.) as i mentioned above i want a image(this is png text) to rotate around another image(which is globe).

The process is the same. Split the layer. One layer goes on top, the other layer goes underneath, you switch the visibility of layers when they are even with the globe.

How do i split layers?
They are already on different layers.
I can't find the path option for images(i.e only for text).

I Have attached the images.
