Tip: Making iteration bands stand out

Fractal eXtreme's curve-based Colour Palette window makes it easy to make smooth colour palettes, where the individual iteration bands are barely visible. However, if you want to make those colour bands stand out, use the Show Stripes option (in the Colour Palette window's Colour menu). This lets you define the even-numbered colours of the palette separately from the odd-numbered colours. For examples of this feature, use the Rainbow Stripes or Black and White preset palettes.
