"The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it."

This is a special gallery with "mini-planet" projections of some of the cubemaps in my collection. Something similar can be achieved with a spherical panorama and the polar coordinates filter in Photoshop, but instead I wrote my own little tool that uses cubemaps. This allows me to tweak the projection individually for each cubemap and helps with eliminating the tripod which is kind of hard to do in a spherical panorama but much easier in a linear projection in a cubemap face.

I've used cubemaps from my collection for this gallery, so there are no new pictures as such, only presented in fancier way.
