Creating Fractals is great fun and the amazing formations you can acheive are very inspiring and fascinating.

There are two programmes which you can download for free to creat amazing Fractals here are the links to them:

For Windows 7 users:

jeddaka.ath.cx/xyrus/apophysis…

Another free programme:

sourceforge.net/projects/apoph…

There ia a great resource for add on's for the above programmes to be found at:

fractal-resources.deviantart.c…

I think this is well worth looking at as well for designing Fractals:

Down the left handside of this group are download buttons to other fantastic Fractal design programmes:

Fractal Resources

Worlockmolly kindly messaged the groupm with these superb links to Freactal Resources:

Fractal Software:
freshmeat.net/articles/fractal…

Fractal Utilities and Software etc
www.fractalarts.com/ASF/Downlo…

Fractal Extreme Software:
www.cygnus-software.com/

Thanks Millions to Worlockmolly for your great links!

Here are ones I have mentioned in an above section of this group page, again:

There are two programmes which you can download for free to creat amazing Fractals here are the links to them:

For Windows 7 users:

jeddaka.ath.cx/xyrus/apophysis…

Another free programme:

sourceforge.net/projects/apoph…

If you know of other easy to use Fractal programmes please post the links to them on this group.


I was asked by a member of DA how I created my fractals, since they had tried but were not happy with the results they had gained, this was my reply:

What I do is I work in Apo7x (for windows 7 users) which I downloaded from:

jeddaka.ath.cx/xyrus/apophysis…

If you don't use Windows 7 you can download another version of this from:

sourceforge.net/projects/apoph…

Once you have either version you can then download additional flames and gradients from the fractal resources groups for Apophysis like this one:

apophysis.deviantart.com/

and:

fractal-resources.deviantart.c…

There are many others on DA.

Once you have saved your flames and gradients to a folder on your desktop with the version of Apo then you simply open up the programme, select a flame, and then click the button labelef fx (Editor tool) and a box opens with triangles in it. I just move the triangles around until I like what I see and then I edit the gradient by clicking the button with cascaded folders on it labeled 'image size'.

I move the gradient bar about until i like the colours and then I click the drop down box and select 1000 to render it.

Once it renders I then right click on the image itself and then select "Full Screen", I let it render full screen and then I press the up arrow key and the print screen button on my keyboard to get a screen shot, and then I right click on the image again and select "Close".

Then I open up MS Paint, and on my keyboard I press CTRL and V. I then select "Save As" and I name the file and select png.

The I open the image in Adobe Photoshop Elements and I alter the brightness and contrast until I have it righht. I crop the image, then resize it to a much larger file ie: 345 pixels x 570 pixels becomes 5345 x whatever the contraint multiples the height by.
I save as a maxium (12) quality PNG and then submit the file to DA.

If I manip the image I re-open it in Adobe Photoshop Elements and just change the hues or add characters or object etc. Save again as a large file and a PNG and submit to DA.

Its so simple, it only takes me a few minutes to create each of my fractals.

There are so many ways to do this but this is the way I do it.

Happy fractaling,
Hugs,
Kaz xx

I'm so very sorry. I edited the initial FRACTAL MANIPULATION CONTEST journal in my stash which for some reason wasn't working right! It couldn't possibly had been the writer.......lol

Here's the correct link [link]

I will update my comments to the other groups as well!

I hope you'll participate and help spread the word!

Many Hugs! ~Kitty!!
