Animated Spiral Effect | Photoshop Tutorial

In this tutorial, we'll check out a clever technique for creating a perfect spiral in Photoshop. Then we'll apply it as a retro-style optical illusion and create a looping animated graphic! This project makes a nice introduction animation - in fact, the "Video Timeline" in Photoshop uses many of the same principles as Adobe After Effects. Font used in this tutorial: Castle Press No. 2.
