How to paste flame code into JWildfire

Time Needed : 05 minutes

All flames you work with, including flames you receive from others personally, are the work of other JWF users and, unless they tell you otherwise, belong to their creators. Always be sure to attribute the flame to its creator. For Jwildfire website flames, also provide a link to the original flame code so others can also enjoy working with the flames.

Jwildfire is fractal flame imaging software created by Andreas Maschke. The latest version is available here

  1. Know where your buttons are

    In JWildfire there’s two clipboard buttons “From clipboard” and “To clipboard”. One brings flame code into JWildfire, the other sends the flame code to the clipboard if you want to share it somewhere like the Sanctuary Paster for example. We’re interested in the “From clipboard” for these instructions as we’re going to copy flames from the flame posts section into our JWildfire.

    Here’s the button, don’t click it yet, we’ve not put anything in the clipboard.
