Re: Gotta try this!

The article was in a printed magazine. The steps to do it are fairly straight-forward in PhotoShop though.

Firstly make sure you have a 360 degree panorama with a level horizon. Also make sure the horizon is in the middle of the frame. It's important that each end of the panorama match up so use a spirit level, etc.

Now open your panorama in PS and resize so the height matches the width (the image will be BIG) by unticking 'constrain proportions'.

Now rotate it 180 degrees.

Now go to filter > distort > polar coordinates and make sure rectangle to polar is selected.

As long as your panorama was ok in the first place you should now have a 'planet' pic.
