easy and simple... way.. its just need a
android/ iphone/ipad smartphone. install Google Camera for android
/Photo Sphere Camera for apple (both made by google... itself.. ) .
now take photo in photosphere mode by google camera or PhotoSphere Camera just it take maximum 1 min.. to take.. and if you have good ram in phone the rending of photo will take 30 secs.. you can use panorama mode to.. but best result like the mate iSuat shows here you get by photosphere mode...
and then the surprise app Tiny Planet FX pro for android / tiny planet for apple... buy it.. its 3$ app for Indian users..
and open that photosphere photo in tiny planet and vollah you got your planet...
there is much to play in tiny planet.. but that's the simple photo you get as soon you open photosphere image in tiny planet...
just in 2 mins you can make your planet any where any time because its cellphone people carry every where.. simple and easy.. i attach sample that i took... just helping buddy.. but the action you made is superb well work..

Im using photoshop CS4 and dont have "Polar Coordinates" only diffuse glow, glass and ocean ripple in the distort menu..  Have I misunderstood or am I missing something in photoshop?
It should be under filter >distort > polar coordinates First thing to check in CS4 is you can modify all the menus to show you different aspects of photoshop. There’s a drop down on the top right of the screen that shows what menu set you’re using, or you can access it from the windows > workspace options. I use essentials (which is the default and its there) Secondly polar coordinates only work in 8 bit mode so if you have a 16 bit image you’ll need to convert that to 8 bit first Hope this helps, I have a tutorial on this with some screen shots at www.panoplanets.com
that`s brilliant thanx for sharing it :)
Very nice photo !

 Funny, I was just looking at a portfolio yesterday from a Banff photographer, and I thought, STRANGE! How on earth did he take a photograph like that? Now I know! LOL 
Thanks for sharing

I love these polar panorams,  that was a great instructional.  I've also created a detailed tutorial on my website. http://www.panoplanets.com  where I use polar transformations and the flexify plugin on photoshop to create stereographic panoramas
I've just tried it out and although not as good as yours I'm sure that this will be a great tool in the future. I'm off to the beach tomorrow.

Hugin instead looks cool. But I seeing the first time.
And wait my next project ;)

If you use Hugin instead, you don't get those nasty lines in the center of your ball. Of course you also have to take a few more pictures, but at least Hugin is freeware
Very nice! It works just as well in GIMP, and only took about a minute to set-up. It works best if you have a landscape composed of at least half-dozen frames.

No, theRIAA, that's not how they do it. They use a spherize filter plugin filter. You'll more than likely end up with ends that don't match like tyeo098 demonstrated above.
Depends, there's other ways too: I use this technique, but the only addition is that I take a zenith and a Nadir shot, (straight up and straight down) and use Hugin or Mathmap to run stitching on the photo. Hugin has an automatic equirectangular stitching setting, and others too, like mercator. It's really complicated though. Autopano Pro would help tons, being very quick and accurate.
I'm going to post an i'ble soon on how to do it in hugin
This is awesome. It's very easy to do, but it looks so cool.

This art work is marvelous.You know since i was a kid , my dad had photoshop and no engineer he hired could use it, but this instructable has taught the real value of photoshop.Thanks instuctable
Nice tutorial. You should put in there somewhere that you should stitch the ends of your picture together before you polarize. An easy way to do this is filters->other->offset. Offset till you can see the seam in about the center of the picture then just patch away. The easiest way to patch a seam is just to use the clone stamp tool. It doesn't have to look perfect, just enough so there isn't a harsh line.

But I assume that the ends of the image must connect, or you will end up with somthing like this...
