Making Vortex Effect


Start with a new document (white background), around 640 x 480.

On the background layer, with a brush (around 17 pixels) draw some lines like shown...


Apply Filter > Blur > Radial Blur. Amount 100%, Type - Zoom, Quality - Best.


Apply Filter > Stlize > Find Edges and repeat Step 2.

Now Image > Adjustments > Invert and draw a white star or an X in the middle.


Then, repeat Step 3 again. With this done, goto Image > Adjustments > Color Balance and play around with those bars until you find a colour you like.


Now try Filter > Distort > Twirl and set that at about 90 degrees.

It is done!
