The Online Mosaic Tool: Embedded Zoomable Mosaics

As part of the Online Mosaic Tool, users are given the option to embed the zoomable mosaic personal websites at no cost. To embed your mosaic at no cost and be compliant with these terms, the mosaic must maintain all logos and links that exist in the lower right hand corner. If these elements are altered, hidden, or removed, the mosaic and your account are in violation of these terms.

If the zoomable mosaic is to be placed on a commercial or corporate website, a $2000 USD fee per year is required as long as the mosaic is embedded. If you are a reseller, the $2000 fee is also applicable. If features (submission flow, search, etc.) are purchaed for your project and total $2000 or more, this $2000 fee is waived.

If the mosaic is not publicly available (i.e. is behind a user login screen, intranet, etc.), a White Label License must be purchased.

When embedded, the total number of simultaneous users accessing the mosaic cannot exceed 1500 otherwise the mosaic may become inaccessible, or slow to load for users, during the time period that there are more than 1500 simultaneous users. If support for more than 1500 simultaneous users is needed, please contact us to discuss migrating your mosaic to a higher-end server environment.

The Online Mosaic Tool: Repurposing Embedded Mosaics

Embedded mosaics created through the Online Mosaic Tool will have their Collaboration and Interactive Dashboard deactivated after their submission period has ended. The end of the submission period is determined by a number of factors, including but not limited to, the lack of submission activity over a period of time. The mosaic will still be interactive and have all of the features purchased, but repurposing or recycling the project for a new source image or new activation will require a $1200 fee. Please contact Picture Mosaics if you wish to unlock your project.

The Online Mosaic Tool: White Label Licensing

Through the Online Mosaic Tool, embedded mosaics can be white labeled through the purchase of a White Label License or an Integrator License. Licensing can be for a 3 month, 6 month, 1 year term, and can be extended as necessary. Please contact us here to obtain pricing.
