Hello, I'm troutscout. I'm new here. And I'm interested in learning how to make fractals. So I purchased and downloaded the fractal extreme software. I want to make fractals using some of my photos. But when I try to open a photo I get a message that says can't load file. File is corrupt or the wrong type. Does anyone know how I can remedy this problem? I would really appreciate any help. Thank you

Hello and welcome
 I've never used Fractal Extreme , but I know that some programmes are limited to what file types they can upload, like only jpg or only bmp. Which can be a pain when you can only upload jpg quality. I always merge or layers photos with fractals by using transparent alpha channel pngs  in third party software like Paint.Net or Gimp.

Hello and welcome again!   afro

Making Fractalled Photos is one of my favorite pass times, and what drew me to fractals in the first place.

I also never used Fractal Extreme, so am not sure how it works for that.

In my experience the single easiest program I ever found to make this sort of thing is a bit old, unstable, and never made it out of Beta...  but I still use it a lot more than most people would think sane given all the new stuffs out there.

It's called Mutatorkammer, made by our Admin long ago - but still available in our Downloads section.  It runs best on older systems, if you don't have an older system - run in "Compatibility Mode" for Windows XP to get maximum stability.

Here's one of my favorite examples, using an image of my Beloved   embarrass



If that's the sort of thing you want to do, it is very easy in Mutatorkammer - get it here : http://www.fractalforums.com/index.php?action=downloads;cat=9

Fractal Extreme was designed for the rapid exploration of Mandelbrot and Julia sets.
Fractal Extreme only loads it's own .fx files.
These contain location parameters, palette and mapping, a BMP image of the fractal and optionally the iterations that generated the image.
It can generate .fxz zoom movie files , these are read by a companion zoom movie player program.
Fractal Extreme has been the fastest mandelbrot fractal generator for 15 years.
It has recently been beaten by programs such as Super Fractal Thing, Kalles Fraktaler and  Mandel Machine.
Fractal Extreme allows plugins to be written in MS Visual C++, I've written a few and so has Simon Snake.
The newer programs haven't (yet) dealt with anything other than standard mandelbrots (even Julias!) so FX remains quickest for Julias, Burning Ships and other simple escape time fractals.
