DOES ONE THING. WELL.

Looking for a way to create the perfect image for anniversaries, mother's day, birthdays, team events, invitations, weddings - or simply to say 'thanks'? You just found it.

Or perhaps you want to mesmerize your friends with a photo mosaic that is slowly assembling itself? Look no further.

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 mosaic.

photo mosaic is fully customizable - from the way tiles are processed (shape, frame, color, transparency) to the way that colors are matched and processed.

Experienced users will rejoice at the newly integrated, fully visual Image DB manager that now makes pulling together personalized image DBs for a photo mosaic a snap.

As its sister application 'cf/x mosaic', 'cf/x photo mosaic' supports variably-sized tiles, 'messy' assembly, up to 90'000 individual tiles, and high-quality output (up to 100 x 100 inch at 300dpi - yeah. That large).

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 - if you need it. A built-in compressor can also produce movies at more manageable 'good' or 'nice' qualities, though.

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.

Review by picjunkie

Not useful - No tutorial. Not easy to use by trial and error. Unable to figure it out. Plus, expensive for an app that does only one thing…. poor description of what the app does. I would like to return it and get my money back if possible (wonder if that is possible with apps). Would not recommend.
