Photo mosaics are rising in popularity all over the world. You have probably seen one somewhere such as in your child?s school, your local library, a medical office or elsewhere. They are beautiful, large photo mosaics that will catch everyone and anyone?s eye. You just can?t take your eyes off of these wonderful photos. There is so much to look at and so much to discover in a photo mosaic.

So, What is a Photo Mosaic?

A photo mosaic can also be known as a Photomosaic. This is a type of imaging art that is completely unique from the rest. A photo mosaic is usually made from a digital photograph ? this would be the best type of image to use. You could also use another type of picture, but for the sake of this article, we will focus on creating photo mosaics from a digital photograph.

To begin, the photograph needs to be divided into equal rectangular sections, as small as you want them to be. They should be small enough to create a great visual effect, but not too small so that someone looking at the finished project could not see them. They also should not be too large, because then it would look a little odd and probably not create your desired look.

Every one of those rectangular divisions will be replaced by another image with normal colors. When you look at the image at a distance (let?s say you are using a digital photograph of your favorite cat to create a photo mosaic) you would only see the cat. However, you might notice that the photograph?s resolution is a little off, or that something seems to be different about this photograph. When you stand close to the photo mosaic you will notice that there are many different photographs infused within the photo itself. How interesting!

You can use many kind of photos for the mosaic part of the digital photograph you want to. For example, in your favorite cat?s photo mosaic you could use many different photos of your cat to make up your photo mosaic of your cat. So, when you see it from a distance, you will see a large photo of your favorite cat. However, when you look closer you will see many different photos of your cat doing other things in the equal rectangular sections!
