Oh, by the way, I'm not claiming any responsibility for your non-productive time at work or strained marriages........

Saly-
These latest images are amazing! The object remaining less distorted/becoming more a focal point in the image is simply awesome. Kudos for coming up with this!

Thanks Wes, but the only thing I can take credit for is finding a post on another forum with a link to the instructions

I had fun playing around with these today. After I did about 10 of them, I went back and re-read the instructions in the link Saly had posted and I realized I'd been doing them a little differently.

Instead of making a square selection, I simply did a square crop. This appears to eliminate the seam in the middle, plus you don't have to go back and reselect when you do the second distortion. The other thing I noticed when using the selection method was that the area outside the circle was multi-color which wasn't in the ones where I simply cropped the image.

Here's the same image using the two different methods. Sorry if this was confusing. I'm home sick with a head cold and am having trouble thinking straight tonight . Thanks to Saly, I had something fun to do today to occupy myself .

Image 1 - Cropped. Image 2 - Selection Method.

Wow everyone, great posts. Thank you Saly for suggesting this mind game.
laurel99, I found you get an unmatched seam when the square selection doesn't match up perfectly with the picture underneath. I just undo and redo by repositioning the square selection (or even making it a tad smaller), then crop.

The question now is what to do with those four corners... My solution so far is this: (first photo)

Another came out by mistake: (second photo).
Any other idea???

Excellent! It's too bad that the seam is quite obvious in this case but still, I like the work around the corners and framing.

Wow, very nice job everyone!

Yes Laurel, I see how that can work. Nice job!

Kibaris, I also wondered about the corners but they often make a nice frame around the ball. Maybe a circular crop?

Very pretty, Forzahibs!!
