Mazaika is a professional photo mosaic tool.
Mazaika can create pictures made of other pictures. Here is a samples gallery of these pictures. On the mazaika page you can see screenshots and example mosaics. There are also more example pictures at gallery section. Besides many small pictures there are some very hi res pictures which you can print as big as A3 or even larger.
Using Mazaika you can make professional looking mosaic pictures from almost any kind and type of image files. You can use even simple icon files (at size 32x32 pixels) to create very impressive mosaic pictures. If you have a digital camera, you can use your own pictures as tiles. Note that even in trial version of Mazaika you have no limit on the image database size and you could use as many of your own custom picture tiles as you want - or rather, as you have :-).
Mazaika is the ONLY photo mosaic application that allows manual changes to every single tile in the finished mosaic. If you don't like an image, substitute it with another matching candidate image! And even more! You might insert custom images as a sort of personal signature, or as a hidden picture riddle (as in a "Where are they?" puzzle book). Or you might need to make sure that a particularly well-liked image is not passed over as a tile; for example that Uncle Ernie appears somewhere in your final mosaic.
Why Use Mazaika for Photo Mosaics?
Mazaika is a great photo mosaic tool. With Mazaika, you are able to create a picture that is made of hundreds or thousands of smaller pictures. Mazaika is available for Linux, Mac and Windows operating systems. This guideline will go over a few of the best features of Mazaika.
Real Time Editing
The best feature of Mazaika is real time editing. If you are creating a photo mosaic, you are using smaller pictures to recreate a bigger picture. To make your mosaic look good, every time you add a picture to your mosaic, Mazaika will color correct and blend the new picture in real time.
Unlike other photo mosaic tools, Mazaika has multiple rendering modes. In smart rendering modes, Mazaika will help you fill the key portions of your big picture first. In manual rendering mode, you can remove and replace individual picture tiles that are in your photo mosaic.
Being that you need hundreds to thousands of small pictures to recreate one larger picture, it can take a long time to sort through those pictures. To help with that issue, Mazaika comes with a batch processing tool. Basically, Mazaika will take the folder that you have images in and process them at once so you have access to them when you start creating your photo mosaic.
