    Oh yeah, sorry. This is my first attempt, so I don't really know all the fine tuning. I think this works best with very level city or landscape shots.
    Open your image in photoshop.
    Scale your image to a square. (Image>image sixe>uncheck "scale styles"and"constrain proportions"> make height and width pixel #s match)
    Rotate image 180 degrees
    Apply filter>polar coordinates.
    Clean up stitch lines by cloning, healing brush, etc...(your choice)

    It's perty cool and fun to play around with....

    That's pretty cool -- I've never tried that before. I know there's a dude up in Seattle who does cityscapes like this (though not using this exact technique -- I don't know what he does, but his stuff like you're looking at a tiny little planet), and he's been quite successful. I just dug around and found the page of the guy I was thinking of:

    I just tried doing it to a shot I had of the U.S. Capitol building. It worked so-so:
