Does anyone know of a Kaleidoscope program for Mac?

Asked by peggylou (1129points) April 6th, 2010

I’m looking for a photo program (application) that can make clever kaleidoscope pictures out of my photos, but I can’t find one for a Mac—just PCs. Do any of you know of one?

Fantastic kaleidoscope poster! I’ve got Photoshop Elements, but I have no clue how to make the kaleidoscope program. How did you do that?

kind of difficult to explain here, but here are some basic video tuts on how to do them using PS :)

well there are plug ins that you can install for PS that will easily make a kaleidoscoped image or you can do it the old fashioned way and basically mirror images and use layers and blending techniques to get it just right.

here are some tuts on how to do it. I did mine the old fashioned way, no plug in involved.
