In general, the only way that photomosaics are actually effective is to have a high enough resolution (i.e. large number of tiles) for the picture to be recognizable. Here I have taken a photo and made it in several different resolutions just for comparison.

Do you know what this might be a picture of? First we have 5 tiles across.

Cactus 5

Next, we go to 10 tiles across.

Cactus 10

It should start to be a little clearer now…

Next is 20 tiles across.

Cactus 20

I’m sure you can see it now…

Just for a really nice finish, here is 40 across.

Cactus 40

And just for complete clarity, here is the original.

Cactus Original

Thanks to Brinkidink for the link to this beautiful photo!

    Perhaps I shouldn’t boast, but I figured out that it was a saguaro in the desert from the very first pic!

    BTW, I’m 1389 on Twitter…my icon is a little cartoon bear at a computer desk…
