thanks very much for posting this tutorial!!

I'd love to do this once. I think this only works when you have empty space in front of you (for example the parking-lots, or a open space in the woods)?

Kick ass, must try!
01/01/2007 07:22:54 PM · #4
I would also like to thank you.
I read your "My World" photo comments the other day.
You got me using Autostitch, awesome software.
Nothing I have done is anything close to your work, but I am working on it. :)

Awesome stuff, thank for taking the time to do this tutorial!!

Very cool. Thanks for the tutorial.

After reading the notes on your entry I gave it a quick go myself. The weather wasn't the best when I tried it and I haven't done any processing to enhance the image - I will when I reshoot it on a better day.

Thank you all for the great response. One additional thing I found in my follow up images was that if I added a strip of negative space above the skyline in the panorama that when you do the polar coordinate filter you are left with an image that can be cropped so the sky does not end up with the globe effect and empty corners. At least I think thats what happened. The above image was one I did quickly to see how large people in the forefront would be. I would love to be able to do clean family portraits in this style. Could be a good niche market.

Again - thankyou all for your enthusiasm for this tutorial. This type of shot is not only alot of fun - but quite easy. Enjoy!!!

i'm sure i'll get better with more practice

I went to a most brilliant exhibition of Escher prints yesterday in Tokyo, and I thought of Tim when I saw this one. ;>þ

Now stretch it out into a proper globe. Just use thre free transform and you will have a perfect little world within a perfect little aquare. Verynice work!

I hope you dont mind teh quick stretch.

Thanks for the tutorial!!!! This is great and I've seen alot of special effects over the past 45 yrs.

01/06/2007 11:28:43 PM · #15
I've gotta try this.
01/08/2007 12:13:25 PM · #16
A fast experiment:

' . substr('//farm1.static.flickr.com/163/347778965_2c5db83c71_t.jpg', strrpos('//farm1.static.flickr.com/163/347778965_2c5db83c71_t.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

See large

One thing to try is to apply the spherize filter right after the polar coordinates but before the transform.

I love this technique - had to try it. This is from a single, regular sized photo (not a few stitched together, or a panoramic shot) so the quality isn't great but I am impressed with the outcome, considering! Can't wait to go out and get the shots I need for a proper globe! Thanks for the walk-through!

Thanks for the tutorial. I gave it a go, but mine has lots of jagged lines. Any advice on how to avoid these jagged edges. I don't see them on anyone elses.

I should have said, they only turn up after I apply the polar filter.

Can this technique be used in advanced editing challenges? The advanced rules state it must be one capture so I don't see how this technique can be used in a challenge. Unless a panoramic is considered "one capture" although all of the individual panoramic shots can be manipulated as several captures.

Knap gedaan, fijn werk.Fantastisch deze techniek!

It was used in the expert editing challenge, I believe. That allows more than one picture.
