HyperDroste lets you create amazing droste effect images and animations from your photos.

What is the Droste Effect?
The Droste effect refers to an image that appears recursively within itself.
A spiralling form of this effect was popularised back in 1956 by MC Escher, a famous Dutch artist, with his work named "Print Gallery".

- Support for Cloud Storage:
You can import your photos from Dropbox, iCloud Drive or similar cloud storage services (requires iOS 8 or later).

-Parallax Effect:

Post your creations to social media directly from within the app.

This is one of the coolest photography apps in the app store!

- The droste effect works best when your photo includes some specific subjects, like a clock, a frame, a door or window, or similar objects. Look at the provided examples to get some inspiration.

- If you want to use an alpha mask, you can draw it inside the app, but you will get better results if your photo already has an alpha mask in the alpha channel. You can edit the alpha channel in any external photo editing app.

- You can now change the outline color.
