Dear Reader:
'Mosaic' is the more refined sibling to our blockbuster 'Photo Mosaic' app. It only uses color, and artists love the subtle results that Mosaic can achieve. Please read on for a more detailed description.

For the reading impaired:
We apologize for being unable to convey to you what this app does.

The classic mosaic is an image assembled from small pieces of colored stone, glass, ceramic or other materials. Creating a mosaic is an art that has been around for millennia in almost any culture. The ancient Persians loved them, as did the Romans, and the Greeks. Mosaics never have lost their appeal, and in modern times new subforms of mosaic have emerged.

cf/x mosaic is a specialized application that helps you creating high-quality mosaics and makes it fun. Pop in a picture, change crop, hit GO. Itʼs that easy. Twiddle with some settings, hit Go again. Itʼs that fun. The greatest advantage of mosaic is that it invites you to experiment. It can create ʻclassicʼ mosaics (images assembled from regular tiles) as easily as it creates modernistic assemblages of rectangles and lines. Even better, it creates great-looking, original, high resolution artwork even from low-resolution source images.

Hereʼs a short-list of what is great about Mosaic:
  • Creates high-quality (up to 100x100 inch at 300dpi) original artwork from small image sources
  • Itʼs Fast (capital ʻFʼ. Less than 3 seconds for a 4ʼ900 tile mosaic, 10 seconds for a mosaic with 40ʼ000 tiles, 20 seconds at ʻinsaneʼ quality).
  • Did we mention itʼs fast? Really, really, fast?
  • Many different kinds of mosaics
  • Easy presets for instant good results
  • Fully customizable mosaics
  • Intuitive interface that invites you to experiment
  • Fully integrated crop and aspect ratio management – no need to pre-crop an image
  • Supports differently sized tiles
  • Supports ʻmessyʼ assembly that gives the mosaic a more organic look
  • Export to most common image formats
  • Integration with iPhoto, Aperture, Preview, Mail
  • Direct upload to social web sites
