Creating Photographic Orbs

An ORB is defined as a spherical body or globe. So the goal is to turn a photo into a photographic globe...and it's easy. So here's what an Orb looks like... This is an awful picture I took of my grandson. Turned into this. This... turned into this... And this.... ...became this Here's how it's done - Choose and image, select the area you want to orb and crop to a square. In Photoshop, go to Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates > Polar to rectangular; next Image > Rotate > Flip vertical. Again, Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates > Rectangular to polar. Viola! It's an ORB!!!
