don't you mean Swirl? if so, it does not allow much flexibility in the design of the spiral.

If there really is a plugin called spirals, I cannot find it. (I have Eye Candy 3.0 installed)

Eye Candy sounds nice, do they have a web site? can we see samples of that?

It seems like an overkill to get 3.01 just to draw a (phreaking) spiral. But well, if we must, we must.

As far as the control I need, I need to be able to specify the spacing between the spiral's branches, the width of the branches, I also need the branches to start at, say, 1/2 an inch at the outside and shrink to 1 pixel at the innermost part of the spiral.

Hey, if it is just a spiral you want to add to your PS-drawings, why not use Illustrator to draw the bezier, and then either with Drag 'n' drop, copy paste or by importing with the PLACE command, add it to a layer (automatically in PS 4.x)?

BTW... Soon to come: PS 5.0
(Believe me, it's gonna be f$#@ing unbelievable !!! ;-)

It's not your fault guys, but efortier didn't explain it as well as in the other question.
He needs an Unproportional Spiral.

Like it starts with a very thick lines and ends up in the center with a thinner lines. (then animate it at the end)
I already suggested to him to use a Vector base program, but it will need an intervention to fine tune the vector the his specifications. Then he will have to use a gif animator for the last part pf the project.

I hope this helped everyone here, to have a better idea about his request.
