Give your text’s background a spinning effect

Step 1

Create a blank document, size depends on the size of your text, I made it 300*300px.

Black background. White foreground.

Type your text.

Step 2

Duplicate your text layer.

Use Filter –> Distort –> Polar Coordinates..

Select Polar to Rectangular.

That’s about what you should get:

Step 3

Turn the cancas by 90° clockwise (Image –> Rotate Canvas –> 90° CW)

Step 4

Now you are going to apply the wind filter

Filter –> Stylize –> Wind..

Use it once from the right and once from the left .

Turn the cancas by 90° UNclockwise (Image –> Rotate Canvas –> 90° UCW) and use wind again, once from the left and once from the right:
