    It is more expensive than most of the mosaic software on the market. Most are priced between $30-50. At nearly $100 for the pro version, it is pricey.

    Many people can get by with the home version. But you are limited to a 10mb output file. The biggest image I could make with 20x20 cells was A4 without bumping up against that limit.

    The pro version is very flexible. No limit on the size of the file. Different shapes for the cells. Etc. I was impressed with how quick and easy it was to use.

    I do agree that people have to weigh their options. Different users will come to different conclusions. I have a number of images that can benefit from the technique.

    Thanks for the comment re. the mosaic.

    Cheers,

    Mitch

    I agree with you entirely, it's nice to have the tools to do the job, and great to be in a position where you can have these tools on the offchance you will need them. However, I have to justify costs before I can indulge in software that I may only use once in a while. But it was a beautiful image all the same.

    However, how often are you likely to want to produce such an image, and does it warrant the cost of the software.
    It's a very flexible program. I chose 20x20 for the cell size. You can select a larger cell size, if you want to see the details in the stamps.

    It's like most of the tools I own. I buy them not necessarily because I intend to use them regularly, but because when I do need them, they are necessary to doing the job well.

    Cheers,

    Sure. Here's the URL:

    http://www.aolej.com/mosaic/

    They have a 30 day free trial, which is what I used.

    Cheers,

    Very interesting, but would demand a large final print to be fully appreciated, I think.

    Can we get an URL for the software?

    First Attempt at a Photo Mosaic

    Here is my first attempt at a photo mosaic. I downloaded the 30 day trial of Mosaic Creator.

    I used an image of a pink rose. If you've seen my video tutorial on dodging and burning, this should be a familiar image.

    I downloaded 491 scanned images of postage stamps containing flowers for the mosaic.

    I apologize for the small image. It is only 1000 pixels wide. The detail in the full size image is much better.

    I'm impressed enough to pay for the Pro version of Mosaic Creator.

    Here is a URL to a small version of the image:

    Here is the URL for a 100% crop:

    Comments are welcome!

    Cheers,
