Photoshop Tutorial – Polar coordinates

Filed under: Photoshop Tutorial — Tags: , — Harold Stiver @ 7:00 am


A few days ago I posted a HDR image of a Ukrainian Church. I had some fun in photoshop to produce the above. If you would like to try it, you need to have an image which is relatively plain on the top and the bottom, and the middle portion is at about the same level on each side, because they will eventually be joined.

Here is the procedure

Go to Image>Image Size and make your image square ( you need to have Constrain Proportions Unchecked)

Flip the image over Image>Image Rotation>Flip Canvas Vertical

Filter>Distort>Polar coordinates (Check rectangular to polar)

Now you need to do some cleanup to get everything to match.

That’s it. Have fun.
