We were honored to partner with Intel and present at the IDF 2015 press event in San Francisco!

With the release of our Online Mosaic Tool, we gave the users a sizable amount of power when creating their own photo mosaics. But as we all know: with great power comes great responsibility!

A number of factors go into the process of creating a mosaic, but I’m going to focus on the top three DON’Ts of photo mosaic design.

Once these broken images are brought back together, the result is a maddeningly detailed photo mosaic study of the subject.
