Easy “Globe” Project

Hi friends! This is a very easy technique to have some fun with. Works with a variety of photos, but works especially well with flowers.

Open your photo. If you want a round globe, crop your photo into a square (a rectangular photo will give you an oval). Make sure you have only one layer (merge all layers if needed). Your photo will look quite weird until we finish, so don’t panic!

1. Go  to Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates > Polar to Rectangular (100%).

2. Image > Rotate > 180°

3. Go to Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates > Rectangular to Polar (100%).

Voila! Have fun! Send your samples to share on the blog! Have a good weekend, Hazel
