Photo Mosaic Software

A mosaic traditionally refers to a design or pattern that is created by arranging lots of small stones, pebbles or colored glass. A photo mosaic is exactly like that – where a large image is created by lots of smaller ones, like tiles of a floor.
The true beauty of a photo mosaic can be seen when you zoom in, or take a large print of the image. When you look closely, you will be able to see that the photo actually contains lots of smaller images inside it. Instead of the usual blurred pixels and colors when zoomed in, you get to see a collection of photos that create the overall photo.

Robert Silvers – an MIT student interested in photography and programming – in 1995 made the first photo mosaic. Earlier, it used to require lots of time, special programming and design skills to arrange each image carefully to create another larger photo.
With an image mosaic software from SoftOrbits, you can now do this yourself within minutes!

How to use Photo Mosaic software?

The steps required to create a photo mosaic are very simple and straightforward. Basically, there are two things you will have to do – select one master image and then select the base images.

The mosaic maker software will do the main job of analyzing each base image and placing it in the correct position. Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, the base images will fit in to create the master image.

Let’s have a look at the steps to create a mosaic from photo!

Select the Master Image

The master image will be the main photo that your mosaic will imitate. It is the final scene that comes into place after the jigsaw is complete!

Select the base photos

Selecting the base images is the most important step. These will function as the tiles, and will create the final mosaic of the master image. It is important to select as many photos as possible. In fact, you should select at least 300-5000 different types of photos, so that the software has options to pick and choose those photos which match the colors and patterns of the master image. For example, if your master photo is a black and white image, you should select photos which have a lot of black, white and grey colors. Having a huge database of photos will help the program in creating a perfect mosaic!

Adjust the mosaic settings

After 3 quick steps, your mosaic is almost ready to be generated! If you want, you can adjust a few settings for the base images. You can decide if you want to allow the program to rotate or flip the base images or not. If you have selected a large number of base photos, you can un-check these boxes and make sure that your photos are not adjusted. However, if you have selected lesser number of photos – or if your master image has a lot of shades and patterns – it is better to allow small adjustments, as that will help the mosaic become more accurate!

Well, now a software mosaic photo can be created even without Photoshop, simply using SoftOrbits Mosaic Creator software. The program will break down the master image into blocks of colors. Then, it will choose the base image which matches those blocks and create the entire mosaic. The process will take a few minutes since the software has to analyze hundreds of photos and place them in the correct positions.

How to Add Mosaic Effect to Your Photos?

A perfect mosaic collage requires the tiles to be placed at the proper positions. To create the look of the master photo, the base photos must be able to fill in the gaps.
So sometimes, if the master image is complex, or if you have not selected enough variety of base photos, the mosaic design program may not be able to select the best one. This is why it is important to know how to select a good master image, and to replace the base photo if needed!

Choosing the main photo

Selecting the main photo is the first step in mosaic design creation. If you select a complex photo that has lots of varying colors, you will have to select base images which contain those colors too. Otherwise, it will become a bit difficult for the mosaic designing program to create a good mosaic.
Therefore, you should choose your master image carefully! It must match the database of base photos that you have selected.

A useful tip is to be aware of the main color in your master image. If the most frequently occurring shade is blue, make sure that your base photos have a lot of blue too.

Replacing the tiles

The Photo Mosaic software allows you to change individual base photos, after the mosaic is created.

After the mosaic photo has been generated, you can zoom in to see which base photos were used. In some cases, the color may not be exact or you might want to use a different photo. To change the base photo, all you have to do is select a replacement from base photos shown.
After zooming into the mosaic’s preview in one particular block, the software shows a grid of the base photos that match that area, with the one actually used.
You can manually select which base photo you want to be used and customize the mosaic effect!
