A (probably) Stupid Question About Fractals

Recommended Posts

Like the title says, i see all these awesome looking fractals around, but I've never known what to do with them, if someone could give me like a 5 minute rundown on what i'm meant to do it'd be mucho appreciato. 

Sorry if this makes me look like a total pleb

Didn't see this earlier, sorry. Mainly, fractals are used on tags to at atmo or create a nice effect or, honestly sometimes we just play around with settings until we get what we like. By changing the layer mode (screen, overlay, divide, multiply, etc.) we achieve these effects on tags that are generally subtle.

Is that basically it though? Like adding them on and playing with effects? Everything I ever did back in the day was all pretty much filters that i'd play with and by dumb luck it looked good haha, never used Fractals so when I see the packs with like 250+ fractals i just get confused :L

yeah, basically. There is more to it than that. Most of the time, once you get proficient, they can just become a handicap with what you're doing and you limit using them as much as you can except for a few here and there.

Yeah I don't want to rely on them like a crutch, I want to be able to use them though haha. I'll have to find some and see how they go when I'm playing around with them

Play with them as much as you can, in every way you can, and do it often as possible. You don't get good with them by not using them. Play with them in every way you know how, learn other ways to do the same, and do it repeatedly. Just learn about them.
