Lets choose TMM brand and TMM tile. this is our sample tile collection. then goto next step.
This is the pattern generator and size picker.
Basically, a compress form pattern can put more tiles in same mosaic size. which means more handy work, but better look.

Well, your canvas is ready. lets load a photo and convert it to your mosaic.

load a picture first. I think you dont need my guide for that. lol.
now please notice there is a area selection, it has same aspect ratio as your target mosaic size.

The guide is: for a small size mosaic, choose a small area, with less details.
If you want more details, set more cells at the size picker page.

and there are different color matching algorithm. each one will give you different output. try them later.
welcome back to the first picture here. you got it.
Easy enough?

Please click 'OutPut' button at the main page.

In most case a mosaic is much larger than the paper which you can print.
so you have to limit the cell count for each page.
but currently, we are making a sample, so just click 'Start output' button.

here is what we have:
a mosaic plan, which simulate the final design. a work plan, a tile sample sheet with counter.

Here is the tile sample.
You can see every tile used in your mosaic.
and it tells you the count for each tile.

This is a workplan, you will need it to make your mosaic.

Take a closer look, you will see the work plan is easy to work with.
there are numbers arranged in the sheet, and each number is colored with the same color as your tiles.
so following your workplan you can easily place the tiles to right position.


If you have any questions, ask me.
