Installs and runs in Windows 10 (my main reason for installing it was to test GOTD installations using W10).
A very busy interface for creating patterns; I’ll probably stick to the more conventional image editors.Comment by Flib Gibbet — August 3rd, 2015 at 3:19 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-13) Reply
Loved it and will play for hours with it. I can see it being in valuable along with other photo software. As always I am never quite sure why there are negative thumbs down when its only just been put up here???? Maybe they know something we don’t. Or its not thumbs down because its a bad software its most probably that they don’t want it. TX GAWOTD for a gift that is invaluable to me.Comment by Tony Bennett — August 3rd, 2015 at 3:20 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9) Reply
I’ve wondered about the “thumbs down” rating for years. How can people give a thumbs down in such short a time, when there is barely any time between the time it’s released on GOATD page? Surely it was never really installed, put through it’s paces enough to give the software a valid review such as Karl does.
What I’m guessing is:
This software is not something I can use, so I will give it a thumbs down.
This software is from a company I’ve never heard of, so I will give it a thumbs down.
I did not understand how to use this software and I don’t want to take the time to read how to use it, so I gave it a thumbs down.
This software is not compatible with Windows XP, so I will give it a thumbs down.
This software had a spelling mistake, or was not written in perfect English, so I will give it a thumbs down.
There are many alternative free software suggestions, so I will give it a thumbs down.
I did not bother to install the software, but I read that Karl didn’t like it so I will give it a thumbs down.Comment by Chris — August 3rd, 2015 at 6:05 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)
Installed and registered without problems on a Win 10 Pro 64bit system. A clean install.
A company without name and address.
This is something new as GOTD. It is an “oscillator” with definable wave patterns to create something like wallpapers or background. The idea is not new, there have been many programs in the past of this categories. I have used this more than a decade ago to make the background of web pages.
The software is one year old.
Upon start a (at the first glance) complex interface opens. You don’t need to understand anything about harmonics, wave patterns or whatsoever.
Just use the presets, play around with the sliders and watch the newly produced picture. If you found settings, which you like, you can save these and produce a BMP, JPG or PNG of this output.
Some settings like transparency, JPG quality, no language or update settings found.
It is simply fun, does not harm your system and you can produce something unique as your new wallpaper.
I have made as example a wallpaper.

Not uninstalled(*), I will keep this and play around.
Have good start into the new week.
(*) I hope you understand, that I will keep my signature “uninstalled via reboot”. I understand that this leads from time to time to questions. This was, what I wanted – readers should rethink system security.
If somebody with the needed background wants writes a (readable) detailed explanation of this process and uploads this to a public place, I am willing to provide a link to this paper. I promise, the questions about this will come back from time to time, despite of an existing explanation.Comment by Karl — August 3rd, 2015 at 3:25 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+41) Reply
Re “… writes a (readable) detailed explanation of this process and uploads this to a public place.”
That uploading is not necessary. Anyone can start a discussion on the topic “uninstalled via reboot” on the forum here:
The nice thing about forum entries is that the author can edit it. Not only typos, but he can also correct logical errors and write extra text if needed.
I have to do some errands this morning/afternoon, but can make a start later today. Unless someone else has taken the lead.Comment by krypteller — August 3rd, 2015 at 4:59 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)
Installed and runs fine on Windows 8.1
This is a very nice program which should allow anyone to create interesting and beautiful images for use as web page backgrounds, etc.
You are given enormous control over shape, colour, etc. Reminds me a lot of many fractal generation programs.
Will definitely be keeping this.
I can imagine many hours wasted playing with it!
I can’t get it to active so unless something changes I am stuck with an evaluation copyComment by Shane Potter — August 3rd, 2015 at 4:08 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2) Reply
I have the same problem and posted it in the forums. If you get it to activate please let me know. Thank you. I have played with the program and it is great. I hope the issue can be solved so that it is not just a demo.Comment by Nancy S. — August 3rd, 2015 at 4:16 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)
Though the readme file says:
“Unzip the package you`ve downloaded and install the software by running Setup.exe,
then run the activation program Activate.exe which is included in the package to register your copy.”
Go the other way around. Activate first and run setup afterwards.
Try to use the right-click: Run as administrator.
On top of the opening window, and under About it’s noted that the app is licensed to Giveawayoftheday.
Windows 10 64 bit – SmartScreen gives a flag (I understand the risk and wish to continue).
Anyone else getting this?
The program reminds me of Flame Painter
… and you can try the online demo before you buy here
I will keep today’s giveaway, to paint some curves :) LOLComment by xenox — August 3rd, 2015 at 4:21 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2) Reply
Installed very easily and without problem.
A really nice piece of software which gives the user a lot of control over the output, has some interesting practical uses that I can see will be well explored. Also a great little time-waster by the look of it, I can also see myself playing with this just for the fun of it.
An absolute cracker of a keeper. Thank you GAOTD!Comment by Kestrel — August 3rd, 2015 at 4:24 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6) Reply
This is pretty nice as far as the results are concerned. Overall, very nice graphics. Should be great for making backgrounds or wallpaper. Works standalone and as a ‘.8bf’ plugin for Photoshop and other programs that support it. Supports alpha channel transparency which was a surprise and welcome feature. Opens and Saves bmp, jpg or png formats.
It suffers from a non-standard interface, which although it has arrows to indicate the steps involved, is just not very intuitive. I’m trying to figure out what the developer was trying to do here. I don’t think it is different just to be different, I think it makes sense to the developer but it’s so different from the norm that I’m having a difficult time with it. However, I think the results are worth a little learning curve. Thanks GOTD and Abstract Curves, this is a keeper.
This program is interesting to play with (have fun with with all those slider)
but my 1366 x 768 monitor is too small for the program GUI, not really a matter because maximize the program will solve the problem.
This program is not for everyone but it can create beautiful results, and is usefull for backgrounds, wallpapers on websites, emails, documents. Program is a bit unclear (f.i. “Ok” button in the right bottom edge closes the program) but after some while it is fairly easy to use. I find it best to set the rendering settings, top right, to low (it will save your art in the highest quality standard anyway standard, set by sprocket icon bottom left (there you can also set the compression in jpg)). If you move the “skew” and “balance” sliders, watch the small black and white “real time preview” area right beneath the bigger color preview area. There are lots of templates but don´t click on them if you have a beautiful result set (it will set the template immediately after clicking on it).
It is not neccesary to know what harmonics, phase shifts, input frequency skew or balance mean, no-one can calculate or foresee the results as fast as your computer can. Just slide the sliders and watch the real-time preview area till you have some nice picture. With scale and proportions, top right you can optimize your output.
To me the quality of the output far outweighs the sometimes unclear interface. Big thumbs up from me.
Absolutely one of the best GOTD we had in a long time.
Interface very professional and good.
install well on my XP boot. will reboot to 7 to have it there as well.
Ooo… Loving this one. Swirly patterns on a Monday morning – what’s not to like? :~)
Also works very well indeed as a plugin in Paintshop Pro for even greater mangling possibilities. Activation is simply a matter of clicking on ‘activate.exe’ – not exactly rocket science!
…also, if you save an image, reopen it, and choose ‘transparent background’ you can build up layers as well – brilliant :~)Comment by Dave — August 3rd, 2015 at 4:49 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)
Installed and activated without problem.
A complex interface stunned me at the first glance. But the output image is really beautiful. Yes, I should take more time to learn it.
cannot activate ‘failed to connect, please try again later. I have had this happen for the last 3 days. I have added pup exception and alowed via firewall. Any tips pleaseComment by Terence A Bryan — August 3rd, 2015 at 5:35 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2) Reply
Installed and activated ? – where is Help > About type of file?
Have not time to try it yet.
Also I ticked the box for the Photoshop plugin, restarted Photoshop.
Where does the plugin show up in Photoshop?
Press F1 to launch Help. Are you using Photoshop 32-bit or 64-bit? This version works with 32-bit hosts only. They have 64-bit version on their website. To run the plugin from Photoshop click Filters -> AbstractCurves -> AbstractCurvesComment by William T. — August 3rd, 2015 at 6:10 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

For the users who have problems with the interface: Look into the program-folder – there you´ll find a folder with a manual – read it!Comment by John — August 3rd, 2015 at 6:03 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6) Reply
Installed on and works on Windows 10. Using as a standalone software.
This is a really fun, and useful, piece of software. There’s lots of room to play around with curves and colours. There are numerous ‘Presets’ ranging from Smoke effects to Flowers; these are very handy and you can easily change the preset colours.
I saved both a .jpg and .png image I’d created and used it as a background to my website…And it worked. There’s no repeating of the image and it scrolls perfectly.
This is a great software for what it is meant to be used for.
Thanks to Abstract Curves Software and GOTD :)Comment by Cari — August 3rd, 2015 at 6:16 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3) Reply

Did what it says to do but won’t activate can someone hei\lp please win 7
This software is so ‘abstract’ regarding it’s user interface that I couldn’t find how to shut it down, so I did that through the Task Manager. And then removed it…Comment by John van Hulst — August 3rd, 2015 at 6:40 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1) Reply
