Fractal artist Aexion (Ramiro Pérez Clare Nash, who also developed both the Incendia and Aural fractal programs) has a free fractal wallpaper generator he calls random background generator on his website. Create fractals with a single click (the “try again” button). To download the fractal you have created, click “generate wallpaper”). This opens a view of the fractal that you can download by right-clicking your mouse and selecting download. The images have a satisfactory resolution. […]

Mirror Lab by ilixa is another free app for all Android users that offers various functions, notably fractalization. What’s especially good about this app is that you can take photos with your phone directly in the app. Then you can manipulate them, for example, make a fractal. This app could finally be the Android app most comparable to Frax for iOS! The slider settings give you enough leeway to adjust your fractal. Moreover, you can […]
For all of you Android users with iOs envy, there’s a versatile free fractal app for Android out there after all! Fractview produces high-resolution .png images that you can share to other media. For example, mail them to your computer and use the fractals for dreaming or as collage-making material. Developer Karl Gmeiner (a.k.a. Searlesat) states that Fractview is completely open source and will remain open source and ad-free. The program is also hosted on […]
The Turtle Graphics Renderer is a simple online platform created by Kevin Roast that allows you to create L-Sytem (“turtle”) patterns. These graphics are recursive patterns characterized by self-similarity and hence fractal-like forms. Plant models and natural-looking organic forms ‘grow’ and become more complex by increasing the iteration level of the form. To create images, choose a sample image on the right side of the screen and change the mathematical parameters (e.g. angles) at the […]
Use this simple, well-explained tool to make simple recursive images such as fibonacci trees.
Sterling 2 is a fractal software based on the Sterling fractal generator program written by Stephen C. Ferguson. Unlike the original program, which you can purchase for USD 35 from Stephen C. Ferguson’s website at http://tierazon.com/ktaza/fractal/index.html, Sterling 2 is free. Moreover, it comes with a formula editor. Download Sterling 2 directly from Soler’s website. Additionally, the website provides a link to Soler’s fractal gallery of 1,128 fractals you are welcome to download and use. Here’s a […]

Free fractal makers for download. The fractalforums.com community members who discovered the Mandelbulb also developed two pieces of software for rendering images of it, and its family of complex, chaotic objects: Mandelbulber (Windows, Mac, Linux) and Mandelbulb 3D (Windows, Linux). According to the site, “Mandelbulber is an experimental application that helps to make rendering 3D Mandelbrot fractals much more accessible. A few of the supported 3D fractals: Mandelbulb, Mandelbox, BulbBox, JuliaBulb, Menger Sponge, Quaternion, Trigonometric, […]
This site allows you to turn any image into a fractal or hyperbolic tiling (see image). The program is probably a little rudimentary compared to some of the fractal programs out there, but it’s easy to use and web-browser based. Firefox may be required for some features. Image Fractals – http://www.malinc.se/m/ImageFractals.php Hyperbolic Tilings – http://www.malinc.se/m/ImageTiling.php The site also has several more conventional fractal creators, but I recommend a more robust program if you’re looking for more features.
