| Photo Mosaics Image Effect:
|We can create cool Photo Mosaics effects. A Photo Mosaics is a group of small pictures (Tiles) arranged in such a way to create a larger picture(source). We create your Photo Mosaic by using pictures that you provide (tiles and source), or pictures from our database, your choice.
Below are the steps required to place an order:
- Upload your source image and select "Photo Mosaics" effect and continue to checkout to finish your print order.
- Submit the Tile photos (Minimum 500 pictures) through our FTP service, onlin efile storage sites like dropbox.com or on a DVD once you received the order details. Tile images do not need to be hi-res, anything above 100KByte works perfect.
- We will send you a digital proof before we print your order.
We may alter the source photo or tile photos, adjust contrast and brightness, and apply certain digital filters.
We would recommend ordering a minimum 36x24" print size considering the Canvas texture and quantity of the Tile photos.

The source is a single image that will be used to map the many cells or tiles in order to create a Photo Mosaic.

It depends on the number of images and the final print size, for example if you provide 320 photos and ask for 20x16 inch print size, each individual square cell size will be 1x1". The 20x16" print will have 20 rows and 16 column or 320 cell images.

Q9 : I don't have 1000s of tile images, what are my options?
If you have a main image but don't have 1000s of tiles images, we can help!. We have following collections of image:
- Flowers, 1000 of color images of flowers and nature
- Classic art paintings, around 2500 classical paintings from Van Goog, Monet and so on.
- 10 small black color circles from small to large
- 1000s of small color circles from small to large
- 10 small red color heart shape from small to large
- Alphabet based small images with different sizes and fonts
We can create a photo mosaic using your main image and our collection of photos.
You may also create new images by cropping the interesting subjects of a given image and save them as new files. For example if you have a family photo with five faces, you can crop and create new images for each face or if you have a scenery image with many flowers in it, you may crop and save the nice closeup flowers or sections, this will increase the number of tile images.
Q10 : What if I want to print a company logo or quote onto the mosaic?
The logo or quote will be added onto the mosaic after it has been created. It will not blend in with the image cells. You can make a note of it in the order form when making your order.
Q11 : Which orientation of tiles do you suggest for photo mosaic?
Both portrait and landscape works for the mosaic effect, in most cases there is no need for photo editing if they are from a recent digital camera or nicely scanned.
