Create concentric circles easily with this filter

I enjoyed the tip “Create funky backgrounds with Photoshop’s Polar Coordinates filter” in the June 2010 issue. It got me thinking though; I seem to remember that you can make a target symbol using this same filter. Do you know how to do this?

 

Ah yes, a bullseye target; concentric circles at their finest! It’s amazing how many uses there are for one particular filter, and yes—you can do this with the Polar Coordinates filter.

 

To create a bullseye target:

1.       Create a new 4" x 4" RGB 300 ppi document.

2.      Create horizontal rows of color in your document, as shown in Figure A. An easy way to do this is to create rectangular selections on the canvas with the Rectangular Marquee tool, then fill the selections with the Paint Bucket tool.
