Cut the circle into quarters ...
- Use the Rectangular selection tool to select a quarter of the circle. Be as accurate as you can on on selecting the center sections.
- Copy and then paste the selected area. This will make a new layer of that section. To see just that section, turn off visibilty of the main layer by clicking on the Eye Icon in the Layers Window.
- Duplicate the layer with the quarter of the circle three times. As each new layer is created, move it away from the original.
- Align the four corners so that they are level and even with each other.
