"Create stylish cards or posters easily; with a huge range of customisable effects." - Duncan Evans


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.

Customer Reviews

Works for me!

Good results for me. Nice and simple interface, the accompanying PDF help document is nice and in-depth so it shows a lot of thought went into this app.

You really have to spend some time tweaking the settings provided, lots of trial and error, and of course use appropriate images to make up the mosaic for it to work satisfactorily. To get the results I was looking for I made the mosaic with this app as a starting point then used Photoshop to blend the background image back in using blend modes.

I’m using this on a late 2013 MacBook Pro and I’ve had no crashes with it.

Exactly what I was looking for!

Very simple to use, with great instructions. Really love how much you can play around with the settings to create a really unique piece. Fantastic support team, with very quick and helpful responses.

waste of money

this is a complete waste of money and not even worth downloading, gutted to have wasted my money on this. Its worth spending the time using Adobe photo shop and taking your time as this app is shocking the end results.
