I assume you've already used the Kaleidoscope Effect Plugin for your image.

 

Hi xod, I did not think about the kaleidoscope effect.

 

I did it manually using the Ellipse Shape and the Line / Curve tools. For the example above, it would be nice if an effect could make it possible to create a certain number of circles, with variable sizes and the ability to spread them away from the center as desired.

Ok, demo is up for testing purposes. Go to it!

I haven't hooked up the Rotation control - do you think it necessary?

Thanks EER, everything is working.

 

I think rotation is necessary (It helps visualize the results of rotation from with  in the effect).

Is it possible to add an option to adjust the size of the circle in the center?

Increase the number of outside Bubble Number to 40 and the size of the Bubble Radius to 200 (It may not look nice when working on a small canvas but on a very large canvas the actual setting are not large enough)

Sorry if it hurts your eyes.

@E.E.R - possibly use a double slider for sizes and calculate actual size as a proportion of the selection (minimum side or diagonal)?

Looks fun - cool examples Eli.B)

Yup. Me too. I'll hook it up.

Easily done.

Sure is. But I'm not going to add color customization options just for that circle. That would make the UI far too messy. OK?

 

I'm also considering adding a range of fairly basic shapes: Circle, Ellipse, Square, Rectangle, Diamond and possibly Heart. Any others I should consider?

I'm going to have to generate these shapes programmatically. Let's not get too carried away with complex shapes. They are, after all, designed to have text written into them.

Cloud?  People? Computer?

 

A cloud might be possible. The other two are unlikely at this stage.

and also petal like shapes (pointed, rounded...)

 

This might be possible.

I think the term "Size" (on the first control) is a bit misleading.  I think "Arm Length" or something similar would be more accurate.

 

Agreed - but I don't particularly like Arm either.

 

I'm considering changing the nomenclature. I was toying with the idea that the arms are "Branches" and the tips Leaves, Petals or even Nodes.

 

Feel free to throw your suggestions at me. I'm listening.

 

@Eli - Thank you. That is awesome :)

Updated.

 

We now have some primitive shapes to play with.

 

Sorry for the long delay. Busy, busy.
