Droste Effect plugin for Adobe Pixel Bender for Photoshop CS4 or CS5

I have found this special Photoshop plugin made specifically for this kind of Droste effects and that includes ALL the multiple and complex possible combinations that this technique offers,



This offers MANY controls and many options to configure the effect and distorsion IN MANY possible ways and have lots of possible combinations.



AND THE BEST FOR ME IS THAT ALL IS DONE IN REALTIME (at least if you use the GPU acceleration option checked)



You will find it here and it is FREE to use and download from the Adobe Labs

and this is the official web of the author -->

And this are some artistic examples made by Subblue in his Flickr account








Quickstart

These are the steps you should follow for best results:

Set the size to match the source image.

Adjust the centerShift so that the spiral is centered on the area you want to repeat.

If the source image is a 24-bit PNG with a transparent centre section (like a picture frame) then set transparentInside to 1.
If the image has a transparent outside (like a flower cut-out) set transparentOutside to 1

Adjust the innerRadius in combination with tweaking the centerShift values until the repeated section aligns nicely.
Adjust the center parameter to frame the overall image


.

Here I have this very good tutorial that explains very well how to use this Droste Spiral Effect plugin in Photoshop

Also there is a interesting video tutorial on You Tube

Thats super awesome! Im trying to make it without scripting in Genetica, i know with the free transform the mac like effect is easy, but a spiral is much harder.

Thanks Funkdude! Glad you like it.

I have made some experiments with this and I like much the effects, and one of them I like much and have got the idea to put it as my new avatar

And here is another example from a vertical Gradiolus flower with Infinite droste spiral to the center.

The first one is the whole photo and the second is a close up with much more detail.

There is NO postwork on this, as this could look much better if tweaked and make it look much better using many of the new Photoshop plugins available from different companies.

And then also is possible to multiply the same Lilium flower over itself using this droste efect and get this result shown here below.
