photocrati gallerySo here are a few images created from one picture I took at Mercer Museum.  It started as two staircases that are side by side and shot with a wide angle lens.  The key to making this process work is having something that will line up and be symmetrical when you’re working with it.  If creating a traditional little planet in Photoshop you need a straight horizon.  Then you need to go to the image size and make it square, don’t worry about the distortion that this might cause.  Then depending on the effect that you want, rotate 180 degrees and go to the filter tab – distort – polar coordinates and play with the options along the way.  If you want a perfect fit, use the marquee tool and select half of the image and copy to a new document, duplicate it and invert it.  This should give you a perfect fit.
