Clicking on the browse button next to the "Image To Import" field, brings up a dialog box that enables you to select from a wide range of image files. Once selected the name of the file is copied into the name field and if you have selected a default directory to save files to, the Save To... field is filled in.
Clicking on the browse button next to the Save To... field brings up a dialog box that allows you to create a coloring file for later use in UltraFractal. The new coloring algorithm will be appended to the end of this file.
Change the name of the coloring algorithm created in the Name field.
BringItIn now uses
templates. You can choose any template using the Template drop
down box. Two basic templates come pre-installed. The
standard, which is basically the same as in previous versions.
The other basic template is Standard-Non Direct, which creates a
coloring algorithm that uses the gradient to determine the color at
each pixel. That one is pretty much the same as in previous
writers can create their own templates very simply. The templates
are files that reside in the BringItIn directory. Any file with
an extension of ".tpl" is a template file. Simply copy one of the
2 supplied, modify it to suit your needs, and save it to a different
file. The next time you start BringItIn it will be listed in the
drop down box.
Click on the
Directories button to bring up a new dialog that allows you to choose
default directories that BringItIn uses when browsing for images and
files to save to.
