Frank, great thinking out of the box! The Droste effect is perfect for this image and . . . you nailed it.
I am going to put you on the spot (again). How did you do it? Did you use the Pixel Bender plug-in? I love the Droste effect but I don't seem to be able to get it right. I tried Pixel Bender (in PS CS5) a few times and gave up.
if you are still interested in the Pixel Bender Droste Effect, there is an excellent tutorial for it :
Scroll about halfway down the page to get below all those images. There is a step by step checklist of what you need to do.
When I first tried to figure it out I felt the same as you until I found this tut.
There is also a great deal of other interesting info.
Rita, thanks! I will check that tutorial.
I am still interested in the Droste effect. Unfortunately, the Pixel Bender plug-in is not compatible with PS CC. I used it when I had PS CS5. I guess I will need to reinstall this version (if I can find the disk).
