1) If you would like to keep an image as is, but wish to make changes to it, you can! Before changing any parameters, depress the "new view on zoom" button (see example), and the fractal image is generated in a new window while keeping your original image unchanged.
You not only have a variety of color filters, and color parameters, available in your "color control" window, but you can also "swap" RGB values.
RGB stands for "red, green, blue", and a combination of these colors are assigned to the image based on the parameters you input. (What you see is what you get!) Under the color button on the toolbar you can swap the values.
In other words, if you selected "BGR" it would replace blue for red, green would stay the same and red would replace blue in the image. Get it?! You can then continue to alter the color with filters, bay factors, color controls and the other options which were discussed earlier in the tutorial.
While we are on the topic of color, here is another nice feature.
If you find a nice combination of colors (color map) that you like, you can save it to try on any image at some later point! Just select "save colors" (see example) and name the file whatever you wish. It will be saved as a (.*clr) file.
Whenever you create an image that you would like to try that color map on, just select "load colors" from file menu, select the map you saved and voila'!
Changing orientation. Orientation has to do with how the image is positioned (oriented) as it is drawn. Sometimes (but not always!) you can change this by rotating the image. This feature is dependent on the formula and does not always work, but worth a try if you want to rotate the view. To use this feature select Orientation from the View menu and follow the instructions in the new pop up window. (See image below)
