What’s up YouTube? Creative Ice Media Group here, and today, I’m going to show you a tutorial on how to make your own little planet. You might ask, what is a little planet? Well basically, this is when you turn an image. Like this, into your own little planet. Another example is this one. Again, London, to your own little planet. Okay, I’m going to show you on this image. So, the first thing you want to do is get your image into Photoshop. And, unlock the layer by double clicking the small lock. Press OK. And, we want to do is, normally, if you have more sky at the top on that or this on that you want to crop a bit out. As I don’t have it, I’m not going to have to do that. Then, what I want you to do, is change the image size to 1000 and 1000. Unless your image is really big, just keep it both the same. It has to be a perfect square. Press ok. Now go edit, transform, rotate 180 degrees. And then go filter, distort, polar coordinates. And you have two options: rectangular to polar or polar to rectangular. We’re going to be using the first one, rectangular to polar, and press OK. Okay. As you can see, you practically have your little planet, apart from, you might be able to see, over here, this line. This is when the unusual shapes don’t meet entirely. Basically were going to use the clone stamp tool to fix that. Okay. And you just gradually, okay. And there you have your own little small planet. It’s a really easy effect. Really quick to learn. And it’s a nice little cool effect you can show your friends and family. Thank you for watching, please comment, rate and subscribe.
