Abstract This work presents a new version of a Visual Basic 6.0 application for estimating the fractal dimension of images and 4D objects (Grossu et al. 2013 [1]). Following our attempt of investigating artistic works by fractal analysis of craquelure, we encountered important difficulties in filtering real information from noise. In this context, trying to avoid a sharp delimitation of “black” and “white” pixels, we implemented a fuzzy box-counting algorithm.
