Thumb-Fractal Image Decoding

of 256x256x8-bit Lena

Animated GIF sequence for Netscape or Internet Explorer

1 Initial Image = exploded thumb of Lena

2 First Iteration

3 Second Iteration

This animation demonstrates the rapid convergence of thumb-fractal encoding, a style of fractal encoding developed by the author. For this codec, the first stage is the "exploded" image thumbnail.
