The Spiralize Effect

Top  Previous  Next

This effect draws spiral paths of objects, the colors of which are based on the original image.

 

You can choose the objects to be squares, disks, diamonds, triangles or a mixture of all four. You can also decide whether or not the objects have a border and the color of that border.

 

The "number of arms" in the dialog refers to how many spirals will be drawn (all from the center and equidistant from each other).

 

The "number of shapes" refers to how many shapes there are along each "arm".

 

The "radial speed" refers to how much the arms twist, at a "low speed" they are almost straight, at a high speed they curve more.

 

The shape size is the size of the shape as a % of the diagonal of the image.

 

You can choose the background to be a gradient or the original image.
