For my Digital Imaging class at my university, we had to do a project where we chose something to give a tutorial on. I love Photography and Photoshop so I wanted to do something with them combined. I researched some different ideas of what I could do and I wanted to find something that I hadn’t tried before. I then came across this tutorial on this site and had seen this before and thought it was really neat. So I decided to try it out for myself. It’s actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it and it can be pretty addicting.
Basically, you are creating your own planet using a panorama! It looks so cool when it’s all said and done and you will find yourself looking at what pictures you can take for a panorama. It’s a lot of fun and you can even try to inverse it for another cool effect (follow all the steps the same way except just don’t rotate the canvas 180˚).
Here is what it will look like in the end:
Pretty neat, huh?
Try it for yourself! I created a PDF with the steps to follow, but if you would rather follow a video, then I made one of those, too. Let me know how it works for you! Good luck!
