Among the various original effects that can be used to decoratively distort a photo, the beautiful Fisheye effect stands out, with which you can focus your attention on the desired fragment of the photo, artificially highlighting it and creating the illusion of an enlarged image in a round lens.

Step 1

Open the selected photo in Photoshop, and then in the layers palette double-click on the background layer, then click OK. Select the Elliptical Marquee Tool from the toolbar to select the desired area of ​​the photo for the effect. To make the selection perfectly round, hold down the Shift key while selecting.

Step 2

Draw a round frame around the fragment you need, and then invert the selection by pressing the Ctrl + Shift + I keyboard shortcut. Press Delete to remove the background around the circular selection. Re-invert the image by pressing the same keyboard shortcut.

Step 3

Open the Filter menu and select the Distort> Spherize option. Set the filter value to 100% and set the mode to Normal. The photograph has already taken on a spherical shape, but it still lacks volume and realism.

Step 4

Create a new layer in the layers palette, and then on a new layer create a background using any tool - the Gradient Tool or Fill Pattern. In addition, you can place any image on the background layer that you would like to see behind the spherical image clipped from the photo.

Step 5

Now add a reflection to your spherical object - duplicate the object layer (Duplicate Layer), and then go to the Edit menu and select the option Transform> Flip Vertical to flip the image vertically on the copy of the layer.

Step 6

Place the inverted sphere with the Move Tool below the previous sphere, and then reduce the opacity of the copy layer to 50%. Erase the edges of the reflection with a soft eraser to blur the reflection.

Step 7

For the most realistic effect, give the original sphere an outer glow effect. To do this, select the Outer Glow option in the blend mode settings and adjust it to your liking. Fill the sphere with a semi-transparent gradient to create an even greater sense of volume. The fisheye effect is ready.
