I'm going to show you how to use the polar coordinates filter to create an …effect like this. A circular image. …Now the interior image is just an add on. What we're really concerned with here is …this circular image of, in this case, the San Francisco skyline. …This is our starting point. And you can see in the foreground, …there's some rather sloppy retouching going on, which in this particular …instance I know that, that is going to get masked out, so I'm not too worried …about it. But what's essential here is that we make …this into a 360. Now, this isn't of course a 360.…
So what I'm going to do is, I'm going to duplicate it, flip the copy, and then we …will have a continuous loop. Of course, if you do have the time and …the facility to take a real 360 degree image, then that will also yield some …very interesting and likely better results than this. …First thing I want to do, is I want to make sure my layer is unlocked, which it is. …And then I'm going to come to my Image menu and Canvas Size.…
