One feature of the software that I use to generate these pictures is that it saves everything I do. Every piece of code, every parameter set, and every image big and small. Any experiment can be revisited, every finished image can be recalled and used as a jumping off point for new designs.

Is that a big deal? I find is quite helpful. I do not need to decide if I need to save something, and if so what to name it and where to put it. I can experiment with abandon, always knowing I can roll back to and previous state and try something else. Otherwise when I need to drop out of a creative mind space to do some bookkeeping such as saving a file, it is difficult, often impossible to return to the same creative space.
