What is the .IFS File Extension?

.IFS File Extension Description:

The file extension IFS is attached to Iterated System Fractal files created by the Fractinct program. Fractinct is a freeware fractal generator. It can be downloaded and used to create fractal images. A fractal image is a figure that is shaped irregularly with rugged edges. Fractal images appear the same even at different levels of magnification because they have a property called self-similarity.

A method of creating fractals is called an Iterated Function System. Iterated function system fractals saved with the .ifs file extension are made up of a combination of small figures. The figures are exact copies of themselves, which are arranged to form a bigger but similar figure.

The Yuvpak Fractal Image compressed file also has the file extension IFS. Yuvpak is a program used to compress fractal images. Compressed files with the .ifs file extension begin with a 12 byte header. Fractal compressed images can be resized without sacrificing image quality. The program Yuvunpak can decode compressed fractal images with the .ifs file extension.

The file extension IFS is also associated with the Image EXE Library of the IconForge ImageForgePro program. IconForge ImageForgePro is a program designed to create and edit icons, animated and static cursors and other small images. The application can be used to import and export other types of images and icons. These base images can be used to create icons and cursors. The new designs created by the program can be used to replace the icons and cursors currently applied in the computer system.

Icons created by the user are stored in an icon library folder with the .ifs file extension before it can be applied to the system. Icon libraries can be used to store several icon and cursor images. Folders with the .ifs file extension contain a set of icons that can be applied as a group to the theme and environment of the system. Users can choose a specific folder with the IFS file extension to load icons and cursors with a unifying theme or concept.
