Thanks Monica !

In Photoshop Elements...

Here is the How To.....

To make a circle:

Upload a picture in Photoshop.

Crop it to square.

Go to filters>>distort>>Polar Coordinates>>choose Polar to Rectangular>>OK

Go to Image>>rotate>>180°

Go back to filters>>distort>>Polar Coordinates>>choose Rectangular to Polar>> OK.

Circle should be complete.

When you have made some of them you will see in time which part of a picture is the best for a circle, you have to experiment.

To take it one step further and use your own background

Duplicate your file

Once it has done that use Cookie Cutter Tool as a circle to cut out the sphere on the Duplicate.

Choose your background photo and make it the same size as the square

And using it go to

Filter>> Texture>> Craquelure>> Apply (or use whatever texture you want ... I used a Gaussian Blur on this one))

(You may have to resize the effects as I was using a big file here)

Now drop the duplicate cut out Sphere onto the original file.... Apply "Soft Edge"

Save as a jpg.
