Hello all

Well i am trying to get an effect like this site has acheived.

I am using photoshop CS. i have looked for a tutorial that would explain how i would achieve this. If anyone knows of one or is able to provide me with a photoshop script that does it for me automatically then it would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Tone

made a quick tutorial :arrow: HERE
i realized after i made it that there is a slight gradient dragged across the image and a half circle gradient near the top to give it a curled effect.
hope this helps

You might wanna add some highlights in there to make the lens look a little more 3D :)

Otherwise, a good job :)

nice
as for the effect, id suggest starting with the large image and then sizing down the rest, so as to preserve sharpness :)
