I started with an exit sign above some fall colors at the end of my hallway:

Then I did a polar coordinate distortion, 180 rotate, polar, rotate, and finished with a spherical distortion.

I also took an image of a surfer and did a single polar distortion on him. Then I cropped it off- center and adjusted some levels, color saturation, and since the distortion made it look like he had a hump, I cloned that out.

This is fun! Thank you for starting this thread! I would also like to add that I have Photoshop Elements 3.0 so you do not need the full version to do this!

I've moved on from flowers to tennis. This could be habit forming.

This one was three birds, but two remained visible after distorting it a few times.

That one is cool. Without the birds it looks like a native carving from a totem pole. Or two sleeping heads facing each other.

This one is my favorite so far. It started out as a zygo or Christmas Cactus blossom. I could not possibly remember the steps I used to achieve it, but an assortment of rotations and distortions. I did do a little cloning to clean up one area and some levels. The colors are brilliant! The original background was grey so I am not sure where the blue came from.

I tied the polar coordinates in PSP but didn't like it as much as the circular effect. I started this one with a transparent background then selected Warp under the circular options.

Isn't it just?

I don't know if anyone looked at all 52 of mine linked in the first post but I did ALL of those in ONE session on learning the easy technique!

I went through my entire digital photo collection looking for images that might work well for this.

And I thought the same, Zippy, about some of these images reminding me of old spherical glass paper weights.

That's fab, but would you amend your description - definitely not my technique - I was just told about it by a friend who was told about it by one of his friends...

I don't mind you saying that you're using the technique Kav told you about but just feel uncomfortable with you calling it mine...

:o)
Ta, babes!

Ben, yeah someone has, I think either in this thread someone mentioned it, or in a thread on another forum where there's a thread on it...
But yeah!
