Free Software

Last Friday I downloaded Apophysis to make fractal flame designs, but couldn't figure out how to export the animations, so I went surfing for info or other programs to help me. I still haven't figured it out, but I found GIMP, which is a free photo editing program with some animation capabilities. Below is a link to my first project in GIMP. It was supposed to be for Illustration Friday's Electricity, but I didn't finish in time.

Does anybody know how to upload this kind of file to blogger? I've seen other bloggers who have done it, but I can't remember where.

Below are some flames made with Apophysis. I think the first one looks like an angry flying insect.

Same image, different colors. I love playing with color. I think this one looks like a butterfly with golden rings.

This last one started in Apophysis, then went to GIMP, and was finished in Photoshop.

Bzzzz! :]

I'm currently working on trying to find free software that will convert .gif to .wmv, so I can upload the animated stuff.
