Default Bending a panorama

I'd like to bend a 360 degree panorama into a flat circle to print on a CD label. I have PS 6 and PanoTools, but haven't figured out how to do that.

Or is there some other software that will do it?

Thanks Norman. Just had to pad out my equirectangular pano to a full 360x180 and away it went - to a mystery directory that took me a bit to figure out. More desk-corner shaped dents in my forehead.

Looks like it will do just what I want. When the output is cropped to a width that will work on the edge of a CD label, it represents a fairly narrow VOF. That also limits the projection “distortion”. Doubt that the example at Panoguide would make a good CD edge label - to much VOF.

Found an easier way to do that which also deals with putting text into a circle - see http://www.macdesignonline.com/tutor...g01_polar.html
