"Local" means that the vortices rotate the input image about each vortex's center, not about the image's center. In other words, this filter makes lots of swirls everywhere!––-Now with Seamless Tiling! But keep the image square.––- Tip: Negate "strength" to rotate in the opposite direction.––-Tip: For large strengths, turn ON anti-aliasing and set to "All pixels". Otherwise, turn it OFF for speed.––-Tip: Keep "size, pixels" locked at maximum value. Use "vortex size" instead.
