great to know!

Thanks Jessie and DT. My new laptop has a small tablet - but no pen. Go figure. I haven't gotten my software onto it anyway since both my husband and son commandeered it for games. Maybe once schools tarts. I've never tried a tablet Smile

I love the program called Harmwave.
It is free, and has been around for a while.
He has some cool way to make tiles.
I think the guy who made it was named Harman. Now the only way to get it is wherever it is posted out on the internet.

This is one place I found it:
http://stuff.goatdairying.com/programs/harmwave.html

You can also find it under the name Harm's Tile 99
(as in the year 1999)
Here is another link for that
http://www.geocities.com/ymjcath/img/htmlfram/Harms.htm


Hey ! I looked around and I found Harman. Here is his website:
http://www.harmware.net

I highly recommend this Free Software.
Its one of my favorites.

just spent the morning off on a tangent looking for fractal programs .. so here's what I found that could be useful (smile) ... no way to test them since I use Linux and they're windows programs (multiple versions and dos)

these are free:
Chaoscope
ChaosPro
Fractal Explorer
Fractal Studio
FractSurf
Mandebrot Explorer
-- written by james ***spam*** ... he's a zazzler too! (grin)
MandelView
Quintessential Sophistry
-- numerous dos and win95+ fractal programs

these cost:
fractal extreme
ultra fractal
Mystic Fractal Programs
-- has 24 different programs

oh I know there's more out there, some I've actually used before ... just haven't gotten to them yet (grin) .. and then there are the java applet fractal generator programs ... one in particular I think may be useful to me

Fractal Applet

the problem converting from the applet to a usable image is ofcourse resolution .. pixelization can be a big headache as we all know (grin) ... but I've been playing around with an image I did get from that applet and I've had some good results ... nothing I want to write home about yet but there's hope (grin)

enjoy ...

have an idea .. maybe we can keep a list of links with programs we use free and otherwise and post them occasionally (updated) for us and especially for the new ones here? ... (hehe) or not (grin) .. just a thought (smile)

Does anyone have any suggestions for "tutorials" or help websites for graphic designing or fractal programs? I downloaded a few fractal program but I'm totally lost! I'm a fast learner so with some guidance I'm sure I can pick it up pretty easily.

Thanks

What fractal programmes did you get? .. most design / fractal soft wear if not all have a help area located on the top they have guides there
Posted: Wednesday, October 10, 2007 2:26:04 PM
Fractal Studio and Fractal Explorer

not finding the help section ???
Posted: Friday, October 26, 2007 11:38:55 AM
I don't know if there might be some items on here that would be helpful during the latest contest, so I'm just bumping the list up.
Posted: Friday, October 26, 2007 12:06:59 PM
Thanks Kerry!!! I'll definitely check some of these out.

There is another program that I've been using and playing with called Picnik - www.picnik.com
They have free features and then premium features (for $24.95 a year). Everything was free for a while, so I had a lot of fun. When I have some money I'm going to upgrade so I can have the premium features, but the free stuff is still pretty helpful and fun.

FWIW, I have a Wacom and Inkscape works fine for me.
Maybe it's the particular Wacom you have?

just a heads up that Ultra Fractal is no longer free. You can download a free trial version, but your renders will come out with a message all over them until you pay for and register your copy Sad
