:pointr: A bit of fun with imported images this time. All created within UltraFractal with some minor post-production editing: tonal balance, sharpening, addition of sig & watermark. 48 layers in total.

:pointr: Resources used for this image are all my own except for the Clock photograph which is a stock image by :iconsammykaye1sstamps:

:pointr: PS. This is not about Spring (the season)... this is a represention of a mechanical clock with coiled (watch) springs, cogs etc. The title is a play on words. ;)

Suplendiferous Chris..... been away much too long..... 48 layers is a result.... did you re-import the mapped watch faces as an image????

Never really played with images in UF until recently as I wanted to include them in my Video tut which I hope to have available in the next week via the UF site....

Simply loved the way you worked this out... You have an eye for Jewelry my dear... a Magpie's eye! ;)

Hey, nice to see you stopping by again, Zoo! :)

Thanks for the comment and I'm glad you like what you see but I'm not sure that you are understanding the process fully...

I import images using Image Traps on the Outside tab together with the Color Trap Image Tiles plugin lower down. This allows UF to place/map iterating copies of the image all over the fractal, in all the expected trapshape positions. There are a few other parameter considerations such as size of the iterated image, whether to blend it with an underlying trap shape and whether to apply other artistic or trap manipulation effects but that is basically the process. If I do anything to the imported image beforehand it's only minor stuff like cleaning up and perhaps cutting out an image (if it's a photo). UF does the rest, all in one go.

That's all well and good if you can pull it off. The trouble is that many external images can look rather "tacked on" and frankly rather unattractive if you are not very careful. I find photographic material does NOT blend in very well with digital/rendered stuff so I use images very rarely in that context (just these clock works, really). What I DO do, however, is use images in much more subtle ways - they are great for texturing (as they are or tiled) and for adding other special effects. I would say that about 40-50% of my output these days uses image import of one kind or another, I find it a very creative and essential part of my UF "toolbox". :)

I shall look forward to seeing your video, it might just give me the impetus to update my "Guide to learning UF"! ;)
