I started computer graphics programming in the 90's and have been at it ever since. It's a fun hobby of sorts. The fractals in my gallery were created by programs I wrote on my Mac with the METAL MetaLanguage compiler. Update Oct 2016: I just started using Fragmentarium because it is literally hundreds of times faster than my own software.

I love your recent pics mixing photos and fractal tilings. (I too discovered fractals ages ago, in late 70s, and wrote an Mbrot set prog. that took 48 hours per screen on my “Enterprise PC” with 256 wonderful colours! Really like the cracker, maple, coin and city pics. I’m just a spectator, but would still like to know if it’s theoretically possible to play with “Fragmentarium“, or if one would need your special tiling program to mix photos with fractals.

Hi and thank you for the compliments. I started on an Amiga 500 back in 1989 and remember leaving it on overnight for a 640 x 480 render in 64 colors. 

You can certainly play with Fragmentarium but I don't know how to use it with photos.  It's not very intuitive and seems complicated but it's free and fast, so that works for me. 

In my tiling program I use a recursive subdivision algorithm to check if the perimeter of a square intersects a fractal. If not, draw the square.  If yes, subdivide the square into four smaller squares and repeat.  You can put any photo you like inside the squares once you have the algorithm working. 
Thanks Ivan for the :+fav: of Golden Outbreaks by FractalMonster   :)
See you are a great fractal artist and a computer programmer :D Maybe you would appreciate my Chaotic series of fractal articles. Hope I didn't say it before *senile* ^^;

Oh by the way, I see you are a fan of Toccata and Fugue.  You may be interested in hearing me play a few parts here:…

Also, here's me playing just the ending chords of the fugue.…
It sounds great in headphones... the stereo reverb of the original cathedral is there.

Ooh, I didn't mentioned something about that, did I? :confused: however I just saw the 2 YouTube films. Strong awesome music and a cool cat wandering above the keyboard :D

Thanks for your kind words.   You've written so many articles!  Wow, this will take a while to digest.  I will definitely have some questions for you.  Stay tuned.
