cf/x photo mosaic is a highly specialized app to create high quality image-from-images type mosaics. It doesn't do anything else, but this one thing it does better than any other application available (and, yes, that even includes our own flagship 'alpha'). In addition to being blindingly fast, photo mosaic comes with special presets that help you create great photo mosaics even out of borderline images.

photo mosaic is incredibly easy to use: drop in a picture, choose a tile source (e.g., an iPhoto event), press 'Go'. A few seconds later you have a beautiful photo

I'm glad that I actually downloaded the demo version before I bought it on the MacUpdate deal.

Knowing that this wouldn't be something that I'd use a LOT, I thought that at the price it'd be a useful tool.

It works. The results weren't impressive. Maybe it's me. Maybe I didn't give it access to enough photos as I only have a few thousand in iPhoto. Either way, the results weren't anything that I'd want to share.

The best I can say is that it never crashed.

Thank you for downloading and testing PM. Of course, like any creative program PM can't magically create great results, just like a good brush won't automatically make all your paintings beautiful. PM is a tool, and (like all good tools) it merely enhances your skill. A great photo mosaic still takes work and practice - it is still art. PM can significantly reduce that time and effort, but I can't do away with it.

Each person creates art differently. That is the reason we allow people to download and test PM for free - to see if it matches their artistry. Too bad it didn't work out for you. Luckily, there are other tools that may better suit you.

I've always wanted to do photo mosaics. This one lets me make them quite easily.

It's an awesome program!! I had a few problems at first but their tech support is first-rate. I was just using their trial version and tech support was fast in responding to my problems. The problems were caused by my bad files I had put in the database.

You can't beat the price. And really, the possibilities are endless. This is one fun program. Oh, and to my family and friends who are not graphics people, well, I now look like a genius!

Ok, I have given this another shot, and I am impressed. The version number only went up 0.0.1, but whatever was fixed did help. I have played with this for at least 2 hours on at least 3 different days, and I'm happy to say not a single crash. The problem I was getting with only getting my source image is gone. (it was not the blendback option, because it would do it whether I turned it up or down) I have made several mosiacs, with many different options, and they all look good.

The best feature(s) of this software are the number of options available. None of them are radically new, but to have them all in one package is great.

I would still like to be able to create a database with my images, so it doesn't have to analiyze every time I want to make a mosiac.

photo mosaic is incredibly easy to use: drop in a picture, choose a tile source (e.g., an iPhoto event), press 'Go'. A few seconds later you have a beautiful photo mosaic.

photo mosaic is fully customizable - from the way tiles are processed to the way that colors are matched. As its sister application 'cf/x mosaic', 'cf/x photo mosaic' supports variably-sized tiles, 'messy' assembly, up to 40'000 individual tiles, and high-quality output (up to 30 x 30 inch at 300dpi). And if you want to show off how the mosaic is assembled, just tell photo mosaic to create a movie - it does the rest. DV, HD, iPhone, iPad - just one click. Quality? Broadcast. Yeah, that good.

For advanced mosaic creators, photo mosaic provides highly advanced visual image analysis packages that helps you to tweak and perfect your source data base - and can even recommend the preset that will work best.

photo mosaic exports to most common image formats, mail, Apple's Preview App, Aperture, iPhoto, social Web sites, and even can directly set your desktop picture to your newest creation.
