Range is the complex number range to visualize.

The number of iterations becomes more important as you zoom in to various areas of the fractal. Increasing the number of iterations can reveal extremely complex structures and show just how intricate the boundaries of the Mandelbrot set are. It of course increases the time it takes to render the mandelbrot.

Using different gradients can affect how details come out. Colors to the right side of the gradient represent more iterations spent calculating the value of that point in the Mandelbrot set.
