Add Sphere Effect in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Crystal, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how you add a sphere effect to an image on Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
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.
Click "Filter" along the top.
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.
Underneath we can change the mode to "Horizontal Only", "Vertical Only", or "Normal".
Press "Cancel" to get rid of the changes and return the image to normal, or click "OK" to apply it.
This concludes the tutorial on how you can add a sphere effect to an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to add them to the section below, and we'll get back to you.
