This program turns a simple mathematical formula, found by Benoît Mandelbrot into fascinating images.
Mathematical knowledge is not required to use this program. It is very easy to use and provides default values for all important settings.
This page shows you four images that were created with WinCIG. The images were
calculated at a size of 320 x 240 pels; images where dithered when converted to the web
WinCIG can handle images up to 4095 x 4095 pels. Larger images contain more details. And images calculated by WinCIG are not dithered!

The image on the right is identical to the image above - except for the colour palette settings.
WinCIG requires only a 80386 with 8 MB memory.
Actual memory requirements depend on image size!
A Pentium (or better) processor is strongly recommended.
You need a 256 colour display mode to use all colour palettes (32k or more colours
