Repligator 4.0: An Omoly That's Useful

Repligator's main purpose in life is to quickly let you cycle through wildly different graphic interpretations of a starting image. The author, Owen Ransen, calls this an Image Idea Sequence. Every time you press that F7 key, you're running a different program on the image, which Ransen calls an Object Xform (for transform). Here's a list of them, though it's totally inadequate because it only uses words (you'll just have to try Repligator out yourself, won't you): Banya · Bubbles · Clouds · Explosion · Fallen Leaves · Fallen Letters · Flowers · Haaisi · Ivy · Liquid Energy · Mad Painter · Marilyn Warhol · Mist · Mosaic · Net · Old Film · OpArt · Pearls on Silk · Paul Klee · Phases · Primitive Art · Relief Map · Stardust · Swarms · Tekno Frag · Text · WEB fading · Wood For each Xform, you can adjust some of the parameters as well as the amount and type of the way the program's output is mixed with the original image. In fact, the closest analogy to this whole process is audio mixing, where you play with an effects processor and tweak parameters and the output until everything sounds like what you want. And working this way can be lots faster than going into a graphics program and twiddling, because Repligator does most of the work for you. Just to spice up the page, here are a few more samples of what Repligator can do, this time using the WebDeveloper.com logo. It took about 2 minutes to go through more than 50 variations and select these.
