Thousand Pictures in One

Learnt about this via Amit's post. Always envied the collage/mosaic artists and wanted to do something similar. Never did. The closest I came to making a collage of sorts was when I was asked to design the template for a blog called - The Collage.

Had seen quite a few of photomosiacs, but didn't know that they could also be so easy to create. Pre, a member of has created an image mosaic generator. It doesn't get easier than this, even if it is not creatively stimulating. All you have to do is to upload a JPEG, GIF or PNG image, wait for a few minutes (the resultant image is usually in megs) and view the image. You also have options to directly print or download the image.

Tried these two:

I've just had a click on your photo, it's very impressive. I might try if I could brave putting my own picture in my profile.

Educatedunemployed That was my reaction too.

Dwaipayan (Comment 1) That followed Wow, but with a 'c' (No Ekta Kapoor influences here).

Dwaipayan (Comment 2) You were after my life to design the template. I am still alive, pity the blog's dead (I never liked the content much).

Appu Not me, the guy who developed this. I'm just a medium of dissemination.

San (Comment 1) Thanks.

San (Comment 2) Well, you can try something else.
