This photo looks like a beautiful, sparkly glass Christmas bulb!
But, I actually created it in Photoshop from this photo I took
at our town's Festival of Trees:
This technique is so fast and easy, I couldn't stop making them!
The original photo is below each bulb.
To create these masterpiece Christmas bulbs you only need to follow
four very simple steps in Photoshop!
Open the photo you want to use in Photoshop.
1. FILTER-DISTORT-POLAR COORDINATES click on: POLAR TO RECTANGULAR
2. IMAGE- IMAGE ROTATION-180 DEGREES
3. IMAGE- IMAGE SIZE. Unclick: "constrain proportions". Now, change the pixels of
the longest side of your photo to match your shortest. (You are making it into a square.)
4. FILTER-DISTORT-POLAR COORDINATES-RECTANGULAR TO POLAR
You will LOVE seeing the finished bulb that you created
so quickly and simply!
Photoshop applies the coordinating background during the process.
Try the technique with other photos, like I did with this
Flowers work especially well with this technique!
Have a blast with this fun technique!
