Creating Photographic Orbs

May 28, 2015

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.






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!!!
