Amazing (mass-produced!) collection of fractal art

Pretty isn’t it? But guess what was my involvement in all this? A few clicks. To be precise, just 3. One to open Apophysis, other in the menu to select “Scripts”, and the last one to select a script. (OK,  there was another one, to run the script, it’s 4 clicks actually, sorry!). There were a few more clicks required to render the images, but these aren’t related to the actual creation of the images. And these images look quite similar not only to each other but to most of these so-popular “amazing-whatever” batches of fractal “art” spread all over the internet. So sad.

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…

About the images, part VI

There are less general comments to make about the images every day, but there are some points still not mentioned yet.

Most of these images were made much before than the now common 16:9 format became the default size (I guess it’s the default now, at least for LCD screens, isn’t it?). UltraFractal’s default size when you just install it and opens the default image is a 400 x 300 px image (or was, at least), in the standard (and already old?) 4:3 format. It was the common size used for ages, with all these very known sizes like 320 x 240, 640 x 480, 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768.
