    Very nice. I have seen the technique for micro planets but I've not tried it.

    Very nice indeed.

    The micro-planets are basically a 360 degree panorama screenshot, are they?
    I don't know what technique that is but the result is always great to see.

    Try searching for Photoshop little planets in YouTube.

    Marvelous!
    Same menu and same options and it works in GIMP as well.
    (filter -> distorts-> polar... if I may add it)

    Thanks for the idea.

    Yes. The real skill is in blending the two ends so that you don't notice the join.

    Indeed. I see the edge...

    It should work directly with a 360° image, you can search some of those on google if you don't have any.

    Then again: the sky (preferably) or the ground needs to be stretched or cloned to fit in some large gaps.

    One trick, before doing polar distortion, try to make the left and right edges of the image to have exactly the same tones of sky and make sure not to have cut objects. If you are doing landscape, it's good to have trees and bushes on both ends because they are easier to blend. As for buildings, it is trickier.

    Thanks guys.

    I tried that with a 360° and there are no edges to fix, depending on image... just filling some gaps between sky and bottom.
    That quick-cloning is not pretty I know, I was a bit fast painting.
