How can I create a photo wall effect similar to this with Photoshop CS6?
I tried with
Warp, but it looks so bad and it’s nowhere near comparsion. I also tried with
Edit->Transform->Perspective, but then it looked more like this and not what I wanted.
I’m also trying it on a smaller image (800×415) and I have lots of thumbnails similar to the ones in the original hulu image, but I merged them into one big image with the idea that it’ll be easier.
You could also do it like this.
So I have bunch of layers that form the grid of images.
To give it flexibility, I put them into a Smart Object
Then from the top menu
Edit > Free Transform ( …or Windows: Ctrl+T Mac: Cmd+T )
In the Free Transform toolbar at the top, click Warp modes icon
On the left side, from the warp dropdown, select Bulge.
Add minus value to the bend, and you’re pretty much done.
Make sure the orientation is correct, by clicking the Warp orientation icon on the left side of Bend.
…at this point it looks like this
You can also add horizontal distortion, if you want to.
