FUN. (24/11/15)

This is a quick post for those that haven’t seen the Droste Effect before. There used to be an excellent plug-in for Photoshop but is no longer supported by versions after CS5. Ultra Fractal can do them but it is a real pain and not very controllable when compared with Pixel Bender---Droste Effect. This is a quick online creator from PhotoSpiralysis. It has been around for ages but required your browser to support Silverlight and not many do these days. THIS VERSION works fine in Chrome. Upload an image and play with a couple of sliders and you will get something like this to save.

This is what it looks like.

It doesn’t name files uniquely so after you have clicked Create Final Image, rendered it and saved it you will want to open it in your photo editor and give it a unique file name. This is not that big a chore as the images are PNG file extensions and are a bit big for Blogger though it will accept them.

It’s nothing like Math Map in Pixel Bender you can’t really do very much with it but it would just about suffice in a composite. It appears to be free and is worth a bit of a play.

    1. Red, Vista was useless when it was introduced. I still use Windows 7 which is excellent. I ought to upgrade to W 10 but can't face installing all my software again. maybe I don't have to but I suspect i won't be that lucky.

    2. Adrian, I'm really sorry if I offended you and obviously I have. I'm not sure about the Chrome bit. I also appreciate your many offers of assistance. I'm just terrified that you will advise me to do something far beyond my competence so have been reluctant to try things. I highly respect your knowledge on things technological and thus enjoy your blog.
