Droste Effect
The Droste Effect effect allows you to apply the Droste effect to the image. The Droste effect is a Dutch term for a specific kind of recursive picture. An image exhibiting the Droste effect depicts a smaller version of itself in a place where a similar picture would realistically be expected to appear. This smaller version then depicts an even smaller version of itself in the same place, and so on. Only in theory could this go on forever; practically, it continues only as long as the resolution of the picture allows, which is relatively short, since each iteration exponentially reduces the picture's size.
1. Do one of the following:
 Choose Effects > Special Effects > Droste Effect
 Click the Droste Effect button on the toolbar
2. Use the following options:
 X (%)
Use this option to change the X coordinate of the smaller image as a percentage of the width of the preceding image.

Min = 0, Max = 100, Default = 18.
 Y (%)
Use this option to change the Y coordinate of the smaller image as a percentage of the height of the preceding image.

Min = 0, Max = 100, Default = 18.
 Size (%)
Use this option to adjust the size of the smaller image as a percentage of the size of the preceding image. For example, a value of 60 specifies that the size of the smaller image is 60 percent of the size of the preceding image.

Min = 0, Max = 100, Default = 60.
 Angle
This option allows you to adjust the rotation angle of the smaller image.

Min = 0, Max = 180, Default = 12.
 Border
Use this option to add a border around the images.
 Border Color
This option allows you to change the border color.
OK + Export as Layers
This option allows you to apply the effect and create multiple layers, each of which can be manipulated without affecting any other part of the image.
