This is my first fractal wallpaper - the software used was Xaos. I'm still finding my way about!

As far as fractals go, it is not bad.

I am not a fan of fractals, so I won't rave unrealistically, but it is good. No doubt it took quite a bit of talent. I'm more of a fan of something that has a little more colors, just not so many different ones that it looks like a paper shredder at the crayola testing factory puked. This one isn't half bad.

A 34 foot drop, judging by the c-index - LOL! Thanks for commenting on my Gentle Chains.

Looking at your gallery prompted me to view this. Your images have improved (in my not-at-all-humble opinion) by leaps and bounds. If this was your first, though, you'd definitely got a good leap to start off with! I'm not a fan of framed desktops, but if you have to frame, this isn't at all a bad way to do it - quite nice, in fact. I like the subtle, moody slate blue of this, the grey outer blurs of continued chains and the simple central design.

I can't figure out how to make anything this size in Xaos - never mind anything else!

Thanks, CFR! I'm not keen on frames either - in the case of Gentle Chains, as you say, it had something to do with the Xaos restriction to slightly less than the current monitor resolution. I deliberately avoided using a black frame (or frame of another plain colour), as computers can do those automatically anyway, depending on which size you pick and the settings you choose.

Another way of getting larger images from Xaos is by stitching the smaller images together in Photoshop, Photostudio or (I'm told) Photofiltre, though it's fiddly and time-consuming, and my version of Photoshop never seems to manage it automatically (though it's supposed to).
