You could merge all those pictures in something like photoshop and then apply the new imadge onto a sphere.

ok. ur right guys but the sphere is not giving me the right look.. i mean that ok.. i combined hose pics into one long pic.. alright? when i stick it on a sphere, the sphere scrambles the image.. u know it makes it small from the top and bottom and large from the middle.. i hope u understand what i mean.. im not so familiar with texturing but thats whats happening.. i select the sphere ------> assign new material ---> lambert ---> open file --> select folder ---> select image , and its on the sphere BUT image is not in a good shape.

Might need to look into UV mapping to adjust how the texture displays.
