JWildfire offers you a very easy method to get fractal flames in and out of itself, using copy and paste! Easy…
- 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.
- Find a flame you like.
As well as our own paster section and our flame posts (see next step) , flame code can be found in many places on the internet like Pastebin, there are many posted at the JWildfire Sanctuary facebook group, in that case you would simply highlight all the code beginning with <flame right up to, and including the </flame> at the end. Then right click the mouse and choose copy. Or do a CTRL C.
- Copying flame code from our flame posts
As mentioned above we have our own huge flame posts section that displays the flame code and adding them into your JWildfire is very easy. Find a post in there you like the look of, then notice the code underneath. You’ll see if you move your mouse over the code 3 buttons appear on the right hand side. We’re only really interested in the middle button the copy button.
- Copy the code
This is the button that looks like two squares overlaid, and is without doubt our friend. The reason being, if you click this button, then switch to your copy of JWildfire and click “From Clipboard” then the code will be pasted in and you’ll end up with the image you see above the flame post. It’s then yours to tweak and play with how you see fit. Please note though that you need to credit the author of the flame if you decide to share your tweaked image.
