Add Twirl 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 twirl effect to an image on Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
To begin, we should open Photoshop and create a new document or open 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 "Twirl". 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.
Alternatively, we can select a percentage. For this effects, it's much more obvious if we zoom out. When we're zoomed in, we sometimes can't see it.
We can change the amount by clicking the "Angle" slider and moving it right or left. 0% will be in the middle, then it twirls the other way. We can see the contour of the image in the grid.
We can also type a number in, and that will twirl the image for us to a specific percentage.
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 twirl 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.
