Fractal Gallery 36

by on Oct.03, 2010, under Galleries, Images

Again it’s mostly the old-school images. Most of them where done with the Orgform formula collection, some were done with the fract_ml (I guess) collection which is a collection of formulas used in images submitted to the Fractint mailing list from what I could get.

I refused to try any enhancements on them using UltraFractal this time (but it doesn’t mean I won’t rework some of these images), and I’ve used UF just to render them in bigger sizes and to make them smoother because of the colour number limitations of Fractint, as usual.

There are some images that just don’t work, or it’s because of a certain parameter used in Fractint isn’t available in UF (like the “one” and some others like “cosxx”, usually replacing them with “cos” works) or because some of Fractint’s native colouring methods don’t work that well in UF (like the epsiloncross, and sometimes just replacing the outside/inside with the UF equivalent doesn’t work). Sometimes it’s just a matter of a small tweak, sometimes it doesn’t work at all no matter what you do.

Some images are entirely different when rendered in UF and are missing most of its main”theme” parts when they really don’t work, so I’ve decided to render these that can’t be fixed at all using Fractint. They had to be rendered in GIF, 256 colours, using disk render and 1600 x 1200 resolutions and later converted to JPEG. Unfortunately, if the original image had some imperfections like bandings, these can’t be fixed, but I guess most of them look fine as they are. Some of these imperfections even make them look more authentic and “vintage”.

I’ve named them using sort of a template, something like “OF-XX” where “OF” means “Orgform” and XX is the number of the image, or “OS-XX”, “OS” meaning “old school”. In specific images, I’ve used the “regular” naming, if they were really asking for a name. But as they are mostly abstract images, the template method works.

Enough talking, here we go:

PS. I didn’t edit the tags and details of these images yet, will do that later.

Fractal Gallery 35

by on Sep.08, 2010, under Galleries, Images

Mostly Fractint this time, except for maybe one image but they all had their starting point with Fractint images. Some of them couldn’t be properly imported into UltraFractal, so I had to change some details but the new images are as good as their “beta” versions. There are some really basic and simple images in this gallery, but that’s the point. The last image called “The happy fish” is now one of my favourite images so far.

Fractal Gallery 34

by on Sep.07, 2010, under Galleries, Images

Time to post a new gallery. Lots of images done in Fractint this time. I’m getting this strange fatal error from¬† the Nextgen gallery, but it seems that it’s still working.

Last tweaks done

by on Aug.23, 2010, under General

To make things more consistent I’ve finished renaming all the galleries, now they are called “Fractal Gallery XX” instead of just “Gallery”. The reason for this change is quite obvious when you think about searches in Google for fractals and image galleries. Also, another page for the galleries 21 to 30 was added to the main menu. It seems that it’s the preferred way to browse and find the images, as it’s not easy to go through all the posts to find the galleries, and the search and tags isn’t very precise (it’s not the right word though) at times and gives more results than you would like to visit if you are looking just for an image gallery. If a post is tagged with “image” or “fractal” or “gallery” (lots of posts have the first two tags) it will appear in the same search along with the actual gallery posts. Tags are really strange… I’ve also just found that in WordPress the tags for the images in the image galleries aren’t the same as tags used in posts and are in fact different entities, like for example the tag “abstract” that appears in a lot of images in the galleries, but it isn’t listed in my most used tags list. In fact, it has zero entries in posts, so making a search like “abstract fractal” won’t return any results… same happened with some other relatively important tags, like “3D/3-D”.

Menus updated

by on Aug.04, 2010, under General

A few more entries added to the galleries menu in the front page, soon I’ll have them all listed there. Hopefully these will get as much attention as the single posts about my attempts with the Mandelbulbs. Sad, really. Mandelbulbs aren’t my cup of tea and will be restrained to these 2 images only (well not really just 2 images, I’ll be posting some Mandelbulbs here and there as I get how that thing works, but it will not be the main kind of fractal imagery you will find in here). Those who are looking for the Mandelbulbs here could at least have a look at the other galleries. I’ll stuck with Ultra Fractal and Fractint and the Mandelbulbs will be done just for fun, not because they are the latest trend. I can’t stand even Apophysis at the moment.
