Fractal Software To Create These Beautiful Fractals

There are many different kinds of fractal generating software out there, just waiting for an artist to create beautiful fractal images.
Many of them are free and some of them even have creators who are members here at Deviant Art!.
There are groups available that are devoted to specific programs....and there are groups that  solicit your art no matter which
software you choose to use.  
  This journal will by no means be exhaustive, or complete....
.....but will give you some idea as to where YOU might like to start on your fractal-creating journey.

Highlighting Ultra Fractal
Fractal Art the Ultra Way!
This is Fractal Week and so I would like to bring a little highlight to my own favourite program, Ultra Fractal.
There was a time when this program was one of the most enjoyed fractal programs next to Apophysis, which was of course, free.  UF has always come at a price, allbeit a relatively low one for a program as comprehensive as this.  These days, people are flocking to the newer programs and I feel that UF is perhaps struggling to keep up with the times, although it does work perfectly well on Windows 8.1 as well as on Mac systems, last updated in October 2014.  It has three versions, Express Edition comprising single layer for new users, Creative Edition incorporating layers, layer groups, masks and transformations, and Extended Version which includes animation and network calculations.  It can be bought here
Although this is no longer the latest in fractal prog

Ultra Fractal tutorials
Sorry for being late with my weekly features! I looked through some of my faves and decided that I wanted to feature some Ultra Fractal tutorials. Some of them are for older versions, but you will still get an idea about how to do it. If you make some fractals based on these tutorials, please send me a link in the comments, so I can feature it later. :la:

Miincdesign's March Feature
:wave: Hi!  Welcome to Miincdesign's March's article/feature :wave:
:iconspreadmoreloveplz: So as always, I get to introduce a new dA artist, show some of my weekly favorites, and give a shout out to our donors
Administration note: Please place your gorgeous art work into the correct folders.  If it is a fractal manipulation, place into the manipulation folder and not the main fractal program folder you used.  It also seems that dA is adding a great many to our Animated folder, not sure if this is because it is our first folder on the list or what.  It's not every fractal, but a great many.  Please insure you're adding to the correct folder
On to my feature.
:heart: I am looking for new blooming fractal artists, if you see one hanging out in the group, send me a note, I miss more than I catch.  They must be part of Fractal-Love and been a member of DA for less than a year.   Now, let me introduce you to our own :iconLukasfractalisator:

My Ultra Fractal Notes
I've started this entry on "My Ultra Fractal Notes" to share with people my findings with the program. Not much here right now because I've just started it but it will grow. I'll be adding to it as time goes on.
On Making Patterns:
Under the Mapping Tab the Tiling Transform is one excellent way to make infinite patterns.
DocumentsUltra Fractal 5FormulasPublicmtz.uxf - Using the Tiling transform disable Use Screen Center to pan & rotate to keep the design as is. With it checked & panning the pattern will change. You'll need to change the size under the Tiling transform to adjust the tiling. At a certain position panning you will see 4 versions of patterns in 1 fractal document. Changing Color Density will greatly vary the pattern. As will the Transfer Function & naturally changing the Coloring Algorithm. Needless to say a different fractal will produce a different pattern...dawh! Rotate or change the gradient for a completely different look in a pattern as well  Using the eyed

Judson-Cottrell's Profile Picture
Judson Cottrell
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
Hello my name is Judson Cottrell and I am a Fractal Artist. I discovered fractal art back in 2009 and just fell in love with it. I haven't stopped exploring the fractal universe since. I love blending colors, crafting magical designs, and using effects to wow you with this style of abstract art.

I use a local printing company where I live that deals with high quality prints. I accept payment via paypal. Once payment is received, your order will be processed. The printing company can ship to your address, stateside. If you're international, contact me and I'll find how much it would cost to ship and let you know.

I sign and date each print with pens that won't harm nor fade over time too.

If you have any questions or would like to purchase something, please contact me at

Esatin Paper, Archival, Acid Free Prints (frames not included)

Size (inches) ---- 1 Print ------ 2 Prints ---- 3 Prints
12 X 18 ---------- $45.00 ----- $80.00 ------ $110.00
16 X 20 ---------- $65.00 ----- $115.00 ----- $165.00
18 X 24 ---------- $90.00 ----- $160.00 ----- $225.00
20 X 30 ---------- $120.00 ---- $215.00 ----- $300.00
24 X 36 ---------- $180.00 -----$320.00 ----- $450.00

If you're local to Boise, ID, you may pick up your item(s) at the printer and save on shipping.

S&H: $15.00

I also do commissioned works and with these, I require half up front and I keep that even if a person backs out of the agreement. I learned that lesson sadly last year after wasting time on a project they wanted.

Contact me via email.

Blessings and Peace
