Photo Tip10: Turning a photo into a mosaic

By Jim Zuckerman - Tennessee

You can turn any photograph into a design in mosaic ...

Photo Tip 10: You can turn any photograph into a design in mosaic tiles in the program Corel Painter. When you open an image in Painter, choose from the pull down menu: Canvas>make mosaic. In the dialog box, you can choose the color and the width of the grout and the size of the tiles. It's then a simple matter to move the cursor over the original photo until it's entirely covered by tiles.

To keep the definition of important features, like the eyes, lips, eye brows, and perhaps the direction of the hair, first define those areas with the cursor. Then, you can randomly create tiles in any direction; the defined features will be clearly seen amidst the randomness. The entire process takes about five minutes.
