Polar Coordinates
The Polar Coordinates effect allows you to distort an image by transposing each pixel in the (x, y) coordinate system of the image to the corresponding position in the polar coordinate system, or the reverse. This effect produces unusual and surprising distortions that can vary greatly depending on the image and the controls you select.
1. Choose Effects > Distort > Polar Coordinates
2. Use the following options:
 Start Angle
This option allows you to change the start angle.

Min = 0, Max = 360, Default = 0.
 Polar -> Rectangular
Moves pixels by using the polar coordinates from each pixel as the (x,y) coordinates. For example, polar coordinates of radius 10 and 45° become (x,y) coordinates of (10,45).
 Square
Use this option to convert the image into a square image.
 Transparent
Use this option to make the background color transparent.
 Background Color
