Steps

  1. 1
    We already have a picture open, which can be done by creating a new document or opening an existing one.
    Once we do, we should make sure that we've selected the layer that we'd like to be working with on the right-hand side. We only have one layer today.

  3. 3
    Hover over "Distort" and click "Spherize".
    This will bring up a pop-up menu, which is a preview, so we don't need to move the box out of the way unless we want to.

    We can then zoom out by clicking the minus sign in the bottom left-hand corner, or zoom in by pressing the plus sign.
    The circle is quite obvious when we zoom out.

    Alternatively, we can select a percentage.

    We can change the amount by clicking the slider and moving it.
    0% will be in a middle, then it turns to a sphere going inwards. We can see the contour of the image in the grid. If we want a fisheye lens effect, we would go to the plus side. This can produce a dramatic effect which is quite nice.
