Fun with Mosaics!

Mosaic of Sandy & I

Mosaic of Sandy & I

The mosaic here was made on my Mac with free Mosaic software called MacOSiaX.  The larger image is comprised of smaller images taken of our immediate family of 7.

You start with a large image.  MacOSiaX will ise any number of local folders of images and can even search online for images to fill your Mosaic.  The more images you have, the better job it will do.  There are around 10,000 images within the larger image.  You can choose to use more or less smaller images.  The more you use, the smaller the images.  The problem with smaller images is that it’s hard to make them out, however, the larger image looks much nice.  Somewhere in there is a happy medium.  10,000 images took about an hour on my Mac to make up this one image.

Here’s a great site comparing many of the different Mosaic softwares for Windows.  I have used Maziaca listed here and really like it.
