Fractalius: The Ultimate Guide to the Photoshop Filter Plugin




Fractalius - Photoshop Filter Plugin full version




Introduction




If you are looking for a way to create unusual, eccentric, and stunning artworks in Photoshop, you might want to try Fractalius. Fractalius is a Photoshop filter plugin that creates amazing effects based on the extraction of hidden fractal textures of an image. You can also simulate various types of exotic lightings and high realistic pencil sketches with Fractalius.




Fractalius - Photoshop Filter Plugin full version



Fractalius is useful for creating artistic effects because it allows you to transform any image into a unique masterpiece in a single step. You can apply Fractalius to portraits of people, animals, flowers, architecture, landscapes, or any other subject you like. You can also experiment with different parameters and presets to achieve different results.


Some of the main features and benefits of Fractalius are:



  • It works with Photoshop (from CS5 to CC2022) or any other compatible image editor.



  • It has a simple and intuitive interface that lets you adjust the effect easily.



  • It has a variety of presets that you can use as a starting point or customize further.



  • It has a fast and smooth rendering process that does not slow down your system.



  • It produces high-quality images that can be printed or shared online.



How to download and install Fractalius




If you want to try Fractalius, you need to download and install it on your computer. Here are the steps you need to follow:



  • Go to the official website of Redfield Plugins, which is the developer of Fractalius. You can find it at [1](https://www.redfieldplugins.com/filterFractalius.htm).



  • On the website, you will see two versions of Fractalius: Fractalius 2 and Fractalius One. Fractalius 2 is the latest version that has more features and options than Fractalius One. However, both versions create beautiful effects, so you can choose whichever one you prefer.



  • Click on the download link for the version you want. You will get a setup file that is about 4 MB in size.



  • Run the setup file and follow the instructions on the screen. You will need to accept the license agreement, choose a destination folder, and confirm the installation.



  • Once the installation is complete, you can launch Photoshop and start using Fractalius.



How to use Fract alius in Photoshop




Now that you have downloaded and installed Fractalius, you can start using it in Photoshop. Here is how to do it:



  • Open an image that you want to apply Fractalius to in Photoshop. You can use any image format that Photoshop supports, such as JPG, PNG, PSD, etc.



  • Go to the filter menu and select Redfield > Fractalius 2 (or Fractalius One, depending on the version you have). This will open the Fractalius plugin window.



  • In the Fractalius plugin window, you will see a preview of your image with the default effect applied. You can zoom in or out, pan, or rotate the preview with the mouse or keyboard.



  • On the right side of the window, you will see a panel with various parameters and presets that you can adjust to change the effect. The parameters are divided into four categories: Basic, Advanced, Color, and Light. You can expand or collapse each category by clicking on its name.



  • The Basic category contains the most important parameters that affect the overall appearance of the effect. These are:



  • Radius: This controls the size of the fractal elements that are extracted from the image. A higher value means larger and more visible elements, while a lower value means smaller and more subtle elements.



  • Diffusion: This controls the amount of blur or noise that is added to the fractal elements. A higher value means more blur or noise, while a lower value means less blur or noise.



  • Sharpness: This controls the contrast or edge enhancement of the fractal elements. A higher value means more contrast or edge enhancement, while a lower value means less contrast or edge enhancement.



  • Variability: This controls the randomness or diversity of the fractal elements. A higher value means more randomness or diversity, while a lower value means less randomness or diversity.



  • The Advanced category contains some additional parameters that affect the shape and orientation of the fractal elements. These are:



  • Angle: This controls the rotation angle of the fractal elements. You can drag the slider or enter a value in degrees to change the angle.



  • Offset: This controls the horizontal and vertical displacement of the fractal elements. You can drag the sliders or enter values in pixels to change the offset.



  • Scale: This controls the horizontal and vertical scaling of the fractal elements. You can drag the sliders or enter values in percentage to change the scale.



  • Symmetry: This controls the symmetry or mirroring of the fractal elements. You can choose from four options: None, Horizontal, Vertical, or Both.



  • The Color category contains some parameters that affect the color and transparency of the fractal elements. These are:



  • Hue: This controls the hue or color shift of the fractal elements. You can drag the slider or enter a value in degrees to change the hue.



  • Saturation: This controls the saturation or color intensity of the fractal elements. You can drag the slider or enter a value in percentage to change the saturation.



  • Lightness: This controls the lightness or brightness of the fractal elements. You can drag the slider or enter a value in percentage to change the lightness.



  • Opacity: This controls the opacity or transparency of the fractal elements. You can drag the slider or enter a value in percentage to change the opacity.



  • Blend Mode: This controls the blending mode or how the fractal elements are combined with the original image. You can choose from 16 options, such as Normal, Multiply, Screen, Overlay, etc.



  • The Light category contains some parameters that affect the lighting and shading of the fractal elements. These are:



  • Light Source: This controls the position and direction of the light source that illuminates the fractal elements. You can drag the circle or enter values in degrees to change the light source.



  • Light Color: This controls the color and intensity of the light source. You can click on the color box or enter values in RGB to change the light color.



  • Ambient Light: This controls the amount and color of the ambient light that fills the scene. You can drag the slider or enter a value in percentage to change the ambient light.



  • Shading: This controls the amount and quality of the shading that creates depth and contrast on the fractal elements. You can drag the slider or enter a value in percentage to change the shading.



  • Besides adjusting the parameters manually, you can also use one of the presets that are available in Fractalius. The presets are grouped into four categories: Basic, Artistic, Sketch, and Light. You can click on any preset to apply it to your image, and then modify it further if you want.



  • When you are satisfied with the effect, you can click on OK to apply it to your image. You can also click on Cancel to discard it, or Save to save it as a new preset.
