Duality - Making of

The DUALITY wallpaper was inspired by  an amazing fractal freeware called ContextFree - http://www.ozonehouse.com/ContextFree/ . After some tweaking I produced the fractal shown here (image size reduced).

1

The best thing in Context Free is that it can render one fractal many times with random settings and, as  a result, slightly different results. So  I put two fractals together...

2

... and again, and again, and finally I had some 15+ fractals overlaying each other, filling almost all space around them (which was my purpose).

3

Next, I prepared the background - a simply gradient, a bit distorted in the middle with brush tool.

4

I added the texture to the background, using the same technique that I use on many wallpapers. (see http://www.vladstudio.com/photoshoptutorial/?cant_sleep_making_of )

5

...Then I added my set of fractals and put it  to the left edge of wallpaper....

6

... and then made a copy and put it  to the right.

7

...One final touch was using black brush to fill the gaps. That's all!

Well, as long as i'm just a graphic designer and i've never pretended to know how to program anything I've been a little much slow in using Context Free. I tried to read make magazine, but i realized at any point as was out of focus. I know it would be easy, but... could you tell a little more about CFDG on your own words??? tnx a lot

It;s ok, but I really want to know how to take the draw from CF to Photoshop in good resolution above 72 dpi's...
