Photo Mosaics



Turn a favourite photograph into a photo mosaic using your photographs, or a selection from our photographic library.

Mosaics are created by combining hundreds or thousands of photograph to create a single image.
These can be created by using you own photographs or by using a selection from our photographic library.
The result is that your original photograph made up of thousands of small pictures.

All mosaics appear more like the original from a distance; the closer you are the more fragmented the image.

Mosaics can be produced from any amount of photographic images.
However, the quality of the reproduction is dependant upon the number of images used. The more images the greater the similarity to the original photograph. If necessary photos can be repeated so as to increase the number available.

Types of Mosaic


  • Colour photo mosaics.
True mosaics with minimal coloration from the original image. The colours from each individual tile (photo) are used to reproduce the original photograph.
  • Greyscale mosaics.
All the photos used are converted to greyscale prior to building the mosaic, creating a textured effect.
  • Colorized mosaics.
These are created by colouring a 'greyscale mosaic' with your original photograph.
  • Word mosaics.
These are created using words and phrases in order to reproduce your original photograph.

Using your own photographs


Mosaics can be created from your own collection of digital photographs. If you only have a limited selection of photos, do not worry, when the mosaic is created they are duplicated in order to create a greater number of tiles.

Considerations


The quality of the reproduction is dependant upon the number of images used. The more images the greater the similarity to the original photograph.
  • If too many images are used, when printed the images are too small to be recognisable.
  • If too few are used, the finished picture can become grainy in appearance.
  • The optimum number of images is approximately 3000 for a canvas 30” by 20”.
