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. Choose Effects > Polaroid Madness > Droste Effect

Use this option to change the number of polaroids.
This option allows you to draw a shadow behind the polaroids.
This option allows you to change the start angle of the polaroids.
Bend Polaroids
This option allows you to bend the polaroids, giving the image a 3D appearance.
You can use this tab page to add some text to the bottom of the polaroids. Use the list to add and remove lines of text. Each line of text appears on a different polaroid; the first line on the first polaroid, the second line on the second polaroid, and so on. You can change the text color, font, font size and the size of the text area. The size of the text area is a multiple of the polaroid border width. In addition, you can make your text bold, italic, or underlined.
You can use this tab page to select a background for your image. You can choose between the current image, a transparent background, a background color, a gradient, or a background image (texture).
