A very nice piece of software! I'm making a Christmas present mosaic that will be much appreciated!
Thanks, Geoff
Hi there, Still, I'm very impressed with what you have done with Mosaic Creator. All-in-all, I'd says it's the best program in its class. I hope you can find the time to continue to improve it. Thanks for the effort you put into this version. I think it's a significant improvement over an already fantastic program.

General questions

A mosaic is a picture that is made of many smaller items called tiles or cells. Items may be pictures in any shape.

It depends on your requirements. If you want to render quality photo mosaic, you may need more than 1000 pictures. Number of pictures depends on content of source image and your pictures. If you want to render mosaic from some blue source image and your set of cell images (pictures) don’t include enough blue images, images must be repeated or used images with other color and colorized. Mosaic Creator has many features to enable render mosaics from small set of pictures. You can start render mosaic from 1 picture.

See page Mosaic File & Size, there is edit box – Target image mosaic file name by default
C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\Documents\MosaicCreator.

Go to page Mosaic File & Size, there is editbox Target Mosaic Image File Name, click button Select to change mosaic file name, directory and file type.

There is no direct answer, test available software and decide what best fits your requirements.

If you want create new language file or update existing, you can generate/update  language files first.
Go to program configuration and click Update language files, on the bottom left.
Then see directory C:\Users\CURRENTUSERNAME\Documents\MosaicCreator for file English.lng or other language files with .lng extension.

Photo mosaic questions

Yes you can. You only need to check grayscale option.

Yes, you can render mosaic from any set of cell images. Mosaic Creator has built in special rendering method and use color space recalculation to produce quality mosaics from special set of cell images. Special set doesn’t cover full color space and there must be some corrections in calculation. Go to page Cell filling and check option Force cell options. There is recommended minimize repetition control, set Cell Image Repetition options to high cell duplicity, set Minimal distance between the same images to 0 or 1, and set Max cell image repetition to value near 1000.

Yes, you can mix any aspect ratio and size for cell images. However they will be cropped or stretched to result cell size. Whether you want the cell images to be cropped or stretched is an option in Mosaic Creator.

No, Mosaic Creator recalculates source image to required size automatically.

It depends on size of result image and number of cell images. There are many options for enhance rendering process. You may produce good results in few hours. If you save configuration, you can produce mosaic with another source image in few minutes. Better is starting rendering mosaic with small set of cell images and small cells. If result is ok, use full set of cell images. If it ok, set target cell size and render production mosaic.

There is used compromise for selecting cell images. If you select cell images more by color, edges are smoother, if you compare cell images to edges and objects on source image, there are not used correct colors. If you need enforce more color accuracy, you may switch to page Cell filling and check Source color fix options.

Yes, there are two modes for rendering tiled mosaic. You can select random order or file name order. Go to page Source Image and select one of these options.

No, supported file types are BMP, PNG, TIFF and JPG. If you render image sequence you can use AVI file as output. You can edit or convert mosaic image after rendering as standard picture.

You can control many parameters for cell image distribution. Go to page Cell filling. You can control minimal distance between the same images and maximal cell image repetition. You can avoid texture effect by adding some noise to mosaic rendering.

Photo mosaic setup questions

Yes, there must be prepared mask for partial rendering or used basic shapes as rectangle, circle, pentagon, triangle. Go to page Cell filling and click Filling grid. You can edit empty and filled cells or load mask from file.

You can use filling grid and set groups of cell images. Then you can set areas of mosaic where to place each group of cell images.

If you have mosaic full filled but not all set of images used, you must start small calculation. Your mosaic is a 36×36 cell = 1296 cells, image set is 522 images 1296 / 522 = 2.483. This means that some images must repeated 3 times and some 2 times. There are few options to set cell image repetition, go to page Cell filling. 1. Max cell image repetition – number of max repetition for one cell image in mosaic if you set 3 in your case, it is sufficient
2. Minimal distance between the same images you can control distance for image repetition, you may avoid side by side the same images you can set it to some small value for example 5 (minimal distance of the same cell images will be 5 cells)
3. Cell image repetition options – play with proprietary options to control image distribution
4. Randomize cell image filling – to avoid image patterning you may add some noise to calculation process, but you have enough images and you don’t need it

Yes, size is not a problem for Mosaic Creator Professional version.

Yes, you can use any proportion for source image and cell images. You can set size of cell images in pixels.

Yes, you can use large cells. Only need enter your size cell width and cell height in page Mosaic File & Size. Limit for one cell size is 999 x 999 pixels.

You can set size of mosaic as you need. Set size of cell (width and height) and enter number of cells in row and column.
