spinning globe
After creating a spinning globe with the filters/animation/spinning globe tool from a planet surface map .jpg image, there is a noticeable seam running longitudinally between the north and south pole. Is there a way to fill-in or disguise the seam?

RE: spinning globe
Would that be where the left border of the original image joins the right border? There are filters around to make seamless images. Another low-tech way to solve this is to:

1) duplicate the layer
2) keep the right half in one layer, and the left half in the other
3) swap their positions, so that the former edges are now at the center

You now have an image where left and right border join perfectly, and you can work the seam in the middle until it becomes hard to notice. You can try to overlap both layers a bit (that may require to extend them a bit beforehand) and use a gradient in a layer mask to blend them.
