Creating spherical widescreen photos on mobile

The Mix application has a function that simulates spherical widescreen photographs. This effect, which transforms landscapes into circular images similar to planets, is usually created using professional techniques in Adobe Photoshop. Mix creates these images without complication, resulting in a photograph that has a new angle of view, as if it were photographed from above. The app is free and is available for iPhone (iOS) and Android smartphones.

To obtain the spherical effect, which is not usually native to smartphones, it is necessary that the images have a horizon that shows the sky, since others can be distorted and without the expected result. We've prepared a tutorial to explain how to create widescreen photos on a mobile phone. Check below and take different and more creative photos.
