How To Make An Orb

 

How to make an Orb
Couple of sidenotes first:

a. Not every picture makes a good orb.  The more flowers and stems and leaves, the better.

b. If you don’t crop the picture to a square, you will end up with an oval instead of an orb, which isn’t all that bad.

Anyway — instructions:

1. Open up your image, but make sure it is only one layer

2. Crop the picture into a square

3. Filter>Distort>Polar Coordinates>Polar to Rectangular

4. Image>Rotate>Flip Vertical

5. Filter>Distort>Polar Coordinates>Rectangular to Polar and there you go!

Be careful, it can become addicting!
