Today fractal was made with a tiny program called FFFF. It is fast because it is multithread, but it is too simple. It only explores the classic Mandelbrot set. Only parameters that you can change are number of iterations and rotate the single palette it includes. It is not possible to load or save parameters and the only way to save an image is taking a screenshot and pasting it somewhere else.
I made a couple of fractals with this program. I like this one. I post-processed it a bit with Gimp to add some texture.

Fraqtive is another program that I have tried lately, just a couple of fractals. It has few formulas and few parameters to play with. Still, it is easy to use and it allows to make some pretty fractals.
This is the first fractal I made with this program. I enhanced the colours with Gimp to make them more vibrant.

Today fractal is made with a program called just "Mandel" by Wolf Jung.
It is a weird program with many options that I don't understand. Maybe it is too focused on the "maths" part of fractals instead of the "art" part. Anyway, it is a software in active development and I did with it a fractal I like. The sphere effect is an option included in the program. I added transparent background and edited a bit the colours (saturation/contrast/etc) with Gimp.

Yesterday I was playing a bit with the program Dofozon, an older version, 1.18 from 1999 by Terry W. Gintz (Mysticfractal). It seems a nice program, similar to Fergusson's programs. I'll try later the last version.
I made this fractal yesterday. 100% raw.

Today fractal has been made with a little program called "Aros Fractals". It is quite simple with few options. This is the only fractal I have made with this program so far.
Image is almost raw, I just edited the hue a bit.

I tried DofoZon Elite by MysticFractals. The program can be downloaded from the author's web but the link is a bit hidden.
It is similar to the old DofoZon, but with many more options. Interface is a bit better organised. I have made three fractals with this program. One of them is this fractal of L-System type. It is a randomly generated fractal but I tweaked it to get more leaves and flowers and to get the right colours. The image is raw. No post-processing.

I have made this fractal just now, with a program called "Mandelbrot Set Explorer". There are at least another program with the same name but this one has been downloaded from Sourceforge and the author is somebody called Kontrastin.
Below is the description of the program. As you can see, it cannot be simpler. This is a 100% raw image.

This fractal explorer focuses on the beauty of colors. It features a smooth color palette generator.
The controls are simple:
mousewheel to zoom
mouse drag to pan
right click to switch colors
"s" key to save as png picture

Today fractal was made with another program called "Mandelbrot Set Explorer" but by a different programmer, a guy called Frech.
It is just a tiny java program, only 27k. Extremely simple, it renders only the classic Mandelbrot Set and it extremely limited in colour options.
I have made only this fractal with this program, but it was so simple and boring that I post-processed it with Gimp: hue, saturation, exposure, filters, etc.

I have made seven fractals these last days with a program called "Dust Fractals", from 1998. It is an interesting program that allows to make different fractals, but it is so slow... And it doesn't allow to save parameters.

One of the fractals I have made with it. Raw.

I think that I am going to stop fractaling for some months, beginning today.
Summers are too hot where I live and I don't have air conditioning. I don't want to overheat the computer.
But I will continue uploading fractals here for some more days.
I made this one today, first fractal I make with the program FracTest that I discovered in this forum. There is a bit of post-processing with Gimp, for the colours.

I had the same problem when the weather changed, CPU getting to 90C. I opened up the box and took off the metal radiator thingy that is bolted on the CPU, took it outside and blew on it producing an enormous cloud of dust. No more overheating.

I opened the computer box two months ago because the fans were too noisy. Tons and tons of dust inside. I cleaned it.
But in summer, I always avoid using software that is too demanding, even when the computer is new.
It is 32║ Celsius in my room now, 8:00 am, it will get worst.

Have you tried cooling systems?

A friend of my in Spain is using coolelements with a fan to cool his computer, he says it works?
Hope you will find a solutin, maybe others down here have a good idea!

Don't worry. My CPU has a very big cooling system. Instead of the default thingie I bought a big one and I am sure that my computer would be able to render without overheating. It is just that I prefer to be safe than sorry. And I have other hobbies that need more attention.
Anyway, another program I tried last week was Fractice. Very few options to play and only three formulas: mandelbrot, mandelbar and newton.
Small colour editing with Gimp:

"Infi" is a small and simple program. It only explores the classic Mandelbrot set. You control iterations, bailout and palette (it is possible to import Fractint maps). That is all.
It has too some midi features but I don't know how they work.
I made two fractals with this program. This is the first one:
