How to make Pano Planets

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to make planet like pictures with Paint.net similar to these at DDOI and Flickr:

I am trying to use the [Effects > Distort > Polar Inversion] tool in Paint.net and I am not coming anywhere close to the images above.

1.New image size 800x800 or more (must be a square)

2.Add you picture up side down in the 1/4 bottom part of the image (for 800x800, your image should be placed at 0,600 to 800,800).

3.Use the rect2polar inversion...

4.Arrange the center and the border line to have a seemless circle (the best is to have a seemless picture before the rect2polar inversion).

5.Effect/Distort/Bulge : -200px

You could try to place your picture closer to the center...

Madjik--

How exactly do I do rectangular to polar conversion in Paint.net??

My version only shows one option [Effects > Distort > Polar Inversion]. I don't see an option for rectangular to polar.

Also, what does this statement mean?

"2.Add you picture up side down in the 1/4 bottom part of the image (for 800x800, your image should be placed at 0,600 to 800,800)."

I understand that I need to resize to a square shaped image, but what does the rest of that mean?

-Seamless Texture Maker (ymd:070620) http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=5334

That's because it's EIGHT years old. It even predates the current forum host. Which is one of the reasons we forbid posting on old threads.
