Give Your Digital Photo a Fish-Eye Effect

Fish-eye lenses enable photographers to photograph a distorted 180-degree perspective. You can simulate a fish-eye look in a lot of image editors (including Photoshop Elements). To make your photo look like it was taken with a fish-eye lens:

1

Open the image you want to edit in your image editor.

This figure shows an image in Photoshop Elements.

2

Select the Elliptical Marquee tool.

Create a round selection inside the image.

3

Choose Filter→Distort →Spherize.

The Spherize dialog box appears.

4

Click OK.

The center of the image bulges out and it actually looks like it was shot with a fish-eye lens.

5

Choose Selection→Invert.

The Selection is inverted.

6

Choose Edit→Fill Selection.

The Fill Layer dialog box appears.

7

Choose Black from the Use drop-down menu and click OK to apply the fill, the choose Select→Deselect.

The selection is added to the great selection junkyard in the sky. And now you have a fish-eyed image.
