Amazing Circle Tutorial....version 8...9...X (very easy)...
This is/was a Photoshop tutorial...
Tutorial will work in PSP 8...9...X.
#1 Open a colorful photo (be sure and duplicate and close the original)...
Crop a square from the image (any size square)....Or....
Open a New Image (square size) and flood fill with a Pattern.
#2 Effects > Distortion Effects > Polar Coordinates > enable 'Polar to Rectangular' (bottom button).
#3 Image > *Free Rotate > Size 180 > OK
*Control R on Keyboard will bring it up.
#4 Effects > Distortion Effects > Polar Coordinates > enable 'Rectangular to Polar' (top button).
The right side will give you background color...choose the 'Color' button (right side) and select the color you want to surround the circle....Also, try the other buttons you may like them, too.
They also can be animated...make them fairly small (all the same size) and use a different one for each frame.
Except for one, each one in the frame was made from a different Pattern...
The following were 3 different photos of a Bee.
Fun, but, very addictive, don't blame me if you get hooked :-)
