This step is very important, you need a folder to hold all files created for your mosaic project.
We dont need to change anything here. use default setting and go to next step.

In most case, larger project always give you better output.
Lets use a poster as our first project. Some beginner get dispointted by their first project, because they choose a small size, which is not suitble for most mosaic project.
Remember, If you want a happy result, go start a larger project first!

Main image is the picture that you wish your mosaic looks like.
The KEY is, Less DETAILS!
A simple picture works much better than a complicated picture.
A FACE always works better than a group of people!
For your first project, try choose a picture which contains only one person.
And use the crop tool to select his or her face ONLY.
Then goto next step.

Now we will see the cell preview,
Our software will divid your main image into many cells, as you set in the size picker page.
The key is, compare the main image overview (top left) and cell overview (bottom left). if they looks close, it means you have enough cells.
basically, if your cell overview looks good, you can goto next step.
If you think it is not clear enough, try change your main image, select smaller area from the source.
Or enlarge your mosaic project.
Lets goto next step.

Now we come to the Cell Image Loader.
Cell images are the small tiles which build your final mosaic.
The KEY is, load as many as you can collect.
For your first project, I suggest you load 200 or more photos. But dont load more than 500, we need a fast result.
The cell image loader will crop loaded pictures automatically. they are copied to your workpath, so it won’t change your original picture files.
Once you loaded enough photos, Click ‘Make Mosaic’ button.
And then wait.

In most case, if you following my guide, you should get a mosaic done within 3 minutes.
