what graphics lib do you use?

For Graphics programming (rendering fractals and whatnot)
I have been using GNU's Plotutils, generally the c++ plotter class. but I have been wondering what others have been using/ would recommend. any suggestions?

Clanlib is supposed to be good if you are deep into C++ - if you are prepared to go straight C Allegro is nice, and SDL if you're willing to do some advanced drawing stuff yourself (or you could just get one of the many many SDL extensions which allow drawing etc)
