Step One


Open new canvas: 500 x 500, rgb, 72 pixels, transparent background.  Fill this layer with a color of your choice. Create a new layer called 'bubble'.  Go to Edit/Fill and from the drop down menu choose 50% Gray.


Step 2


Go to Filter/Render/Lens Flare.  Set at 100%, 50-300mm zoom.   Make sure flare is about quarter of the way between the centre point and the top left corner.




Step 3


With the bubble layer active go to Filter/Distort/Polar Coordinates and set it to 'Polar to Rectangular'.




Step 4


Go to Image/Rotate Canvas/Flip Vertical.  Go back to Filter/Distort/Polar Coordinates and select 'Rectangular to Polar'.




Step 5


We want to place horizontal and vertical guides on our bubble, like this.



Step 6


Draw a selection around the bubble using the elliptical marquee.  Place your cursor at the very centre of the circle where they two guides meeting, and holding down the alt+shift keys drag a circle out from the center to the edges of your image.



Step 7


Hit Ctrl+J to duplicate the selection onto its own layer.  Delete the 'Bubble' layer and rename the new layer 'Bubbles'.


Step 8


On the new layer change the layer mode to hard light and voila!


You can play around with this by duplicating them, scaling etc.
