Fractals today

Ultra Fractal fractalstoday Fractals todayWhile Ultra Fractal is well suited to exploring the classic fractal types discussed so far, it can do much more than that. There are many more fractal types to choose from, and you can even write your own fractal formulas (or use formulas written by other people). Most fractal types are variations on the Mandelbrot and Julia sets.

Each fractal type can be combined with various coloring algorithms, each capable of coloring the fractal in a different way. Transformations can be added to distort the shape of the fractal. Colors are easy to change and tweak with the gradient editor. On top of that, you can use multiple layers to combine different fractals or different coloring methods to form the final image.

Because of these changes, fractals have grown from a mathematical curiosity to a respected form of art. There are fractal exhibitions in museums and galleries all over the world. There is a large number of online galleries on the web, where you can purchase prints and posters from various fractal artists.
