This snippet will convert a square image from supposed polar coordinates to cartesian/rectangular and then back, without loosing parts of the original image.This can be useful, for example, if you want to apply a strictly linear component like smudge in a radial manner. You convert to cartesian, apply the linear transformation of your choice and then apply polar coordinates once more. A solution for non square images is possible, in theory, if the aspect ratio is known. Based on filters by uberzev and byRo.I added some Color Controls as comments.You can change them to your hearts desire, but they do nothing.
