    hi!

    i'm looking for a photo collage software, the one where you create a main or primary image using tons of smaller photos. i don't know what you call that type of collage so i'm not able to do a proper online search.

    can anybody point me to a good one? and hopefully a free app?

    i love creating collages with photoshop but it's so paintaking! picasa2 does a mean job when i'm using my office pc - but that's as far as it goes. sigh. and what i want to do now is the one with the bigger picture -- can't make it manually even if i try to select the colour tones. i need an automated program...

    oh please help...

    I played around with this one a few times

    MacOSaiX but it can be a little temperamental and the results can either be very good or very average.

    Haven't tried printing any of them I'm afraid.

    There was also another app/script that allowed you create a 'Life' poster using iPhoto but not creating a pic within a pic.

    To help you search more, I believe what you're looking for is typically called a photomosaic.

    great!!! a photomosaic - dunno why but that totally slipped my mind. thanks for the links and the term. ;)

    i tried macosaix last night, didn't realize that the tons of photos i had would not be enough for one pic. :eek: but it's getting me addicted... i'm experimenting with it.

    ei! been using it for two days, it would complete the photo and fill in all the spaces but once i save it as jpeg, the result is missing more than a couple of dozen photos! :eek: i've been putting it manually in. have you experienced this or know how to solve it? thanks!
