The rejected images

I was thinking about them and considering what I have seen in other sites labeled as “amazing” fractal art, I might give these oldies a new chance, some aren’t that bad after all. Maybe too common or simple, but some aren’t definitely ugly.

They will be back not in the galleries, but probably more like in the form of free downloads, wallpapers and such. Still to decide about that, first I need to have a look on these images again, reselect those that are really worth a second chance and all that stuff. It’s possible that some might get even a re-render, and even get a new watermark or something (different from the watermark used in the galleries, so the image can be used as a wallpaper), just to keep things more consistent and updated. Some of these images still have a watermark from a site/URL that is gone since maybe 1998. I might not be able to remake all the Fractint images, though…

And I’m assuming you are slightly familiar with Photoshop or some other editing software that is capable to use layers so I’ll skip the part where others teach you how to create text and all that stuff you should already know. OK, let’s go. This is how I make all my watermarks, BTW.

But what is a fractal, you may ask me.

From the old fractalland.com FAQ page:

A fractal is a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be subdivided in parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole. Fractals are generally self-similar and independent of scale.
