Smile How to create a fisheye lens effect with Photoshop

Fisheye lens capable of covering an extremely wide field of view. This lens usually makes the image distorted but it gives interesting effect for the picture.

Method 1: The easiest way to create fisheye lens effect image.

Step 1: open the picture you want to edit

Step 2: Press Ctrl + A to make a selection around the photo. Go to Edit> Transform> Warp, we will get the results as shown in Fig.

Step 3: In the Warp choose Fisheye mode, and set the Bend to 100 for the most clearly effective. Then checkmark "V".


Method 2: Create images with ultra-wide fisheye lens effect

Step 1: cut the image with a uniform two-dimensional size and focus on the image you want to show.

Step 2: Change the name Layer Back ground to Layer 0, by double click on the Back ground layer, select Layer From Back ground.

Step 3: Go to Filter> Distort> Spherize, this dialog will give the effect of convex spherical images.

We will have the result:

If you want to increase the efficiency we can do to one such step or press Ctrl + F.

Step 4: Use the Elliptical Marquee Tool select the area around the image effect. Copy this layer by right click on the image and select Layer via Copy.

Step 5: Turn off Layer 0 or deleted by dragging on the image to the trash in the Layers panel.

We will have result:

Step 6: Use the Paint Bucket Tool fill the black background image. (You can cut image wider to facilitate the operation).

Step 7: To the border between image and softer shirts, and create a feeling of more space for photos. We select the area around the image.

Use Ctrl + Shift + I to change the selection. For more soft feather of a selection, go to Select> Modify> Feather (select number from 10 - 20 depending on your image) and then continue to copy the layer selection.

Go to Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur (choose from 25 - 40 depending on the picture).

Step 8: The final tool used is the Crop Tool, press C shortcut and cut the image like a picture taken with fish eye lens.


I wish you successful and have beautiful photos!

Yay let's take all the bad things about using a fisheye and use them, but lose the benefit of actually gaining FOV...

Also get your spamming *** off the forum.
