You can create the recursive Droste Effect in Photoshop, with a lot of effort. This app makes it more artistic and easy. It's like being able to make a wallpaper design that looks good for your hallway, instead of making a posed Droste-style photo.

I didn't pay much attention to the app until I was about to delete it from my drive. Then I started playing with it and…one hour later, I'm writing this piece of advice: try it for awhile.

Great niche app!

Love the app, easy to use and manipulate to create unique looks (not just common droste. Crashes on Mac — for me — sometimes, but works great on iPhone and iPad! Love it, thanks. Got introduced to the droste effect right when CS6 came out and they took it out of photoshop (was in CS5 / prev)

Thanks for the review! I didn't receive any automated crash reports, but if you ever notice a pattern in the crashes, please let me know and I'll take a look.
