Make a square selection
1. Open an image in Photoshop (screenshots are from Photoshop CS2 on Mac). Higher resolution and size will give better results. I used a picture I found online on Freedom Wallpaper.
2. You need to make a selection that is squared. Use the selection tool, and set the aspect ratio to fixed:
Apply The Filter
Rotate And Apply Filter Again
9. Now apply the same filter we did in point 5. But do NOT just choose it from the top of the Filter menu. We are going to change one of the parameters so you have to choose it from Filters > Distort > Polar Coordinates… again.
Crop And Save
