About Mandelbrot Explorer

Mandelbrot Explorer is free software, allowing the exploration of the Mandelbrot Set and the Julia Sets. With it, you can magnify selected areas of any of these fractal images – up to a massive magnification of 1013 (that’s 10,000,000,000,000)! You can colour the resulting pictures in any way you choose, save the images to disk, and more besides.

You can see the kind of images you can generate using Mandelbrot Explorer in the Gallery. You can now order prints of the images you see in the Gallery as well. For more information on this service, please visit the Mandelbrot Explorer Gallery!
