Before start these project. go learn something about qrcode first. then come back.
Qrcode mosaic project is simple. There is a 'QRCODE MOSAIC' button in the project picker.
Then start a new mosaic project.

Here you can see the qrcode generator.
Basically, QRCODE generator will convert any text you typed to a picture. and the picture will be the pattern we used to create the mosaic.

Now, add some photos into your cell lib. we will use them to make the mosaic.
notice, there is a value called 'pick dark value'; it is a fliter, it will reject light images.
we will only use dark images for the black area in the mosaic.
set it to a smaller value will pick darker images.
