A Rough-Cut of a parlor trick I’d been wanting to learn, will refine this down the line.

    Cool! A parlor trick I don’t know how to do. There are always more tricks to learn. I may try juggling next.

    • It’s not Rocket Science and like the MIRA images we do, very therapeutic.

      The first thing you need to do is prepare the image for the Polar filter. You do this by stretching the height of the image so that the image is a perfect square.
      Select Image>Image Size from the menus. Uncheck ‘Constrain Proporties’ and set the “height” to the same value as your “width”. Next, rotate the image 180 degrees. (Image>Rotate Canvas>180)

      Next, apply the Polar Filter to wrap our image into a sphere.
      Choose Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates from the menus and in the resulting dialog box, select the “Rectangular to Polar” setting.
