  • To view an image:
    Highlight the name of the image and the parameter text in the email message (between and including the curly braces { }), Copy (Ctrl-C) and Paste (Ctrl-V) in an open window in Ultra Fractal -- Yes, this really works!
    Save the entire email message in your Ultra Fractal/Parameters folder using a .upr extension. Then use File|Browse|Parameters (or Ctrl-B) to choose the image from the Ultra Fractal browser.

    To post parameter sets:
    With your image open in UF, Copy it (Ctrl-C), and then Paste it (Ctrl-V) in your email message. Yes, this really works, too!
