Way way back in 2004 I played with a photo-mosaicing application called Mazaika.  Back then I only had about 11000 photos.

But in the past week or two I've been doing a photomosaic jigsaw of Kit's, and it's rekindled my interest in photomosaics.

I had a look on the weekend for apps to try, and gave IMosaic a go.  It's quite old - no new releases since 2006, it's pretty slow, and it squishes vertical photos down to landscape mode, but it is free and does have the ability to index different directories independently, rather than as one massive index.  

So I indexed all my last holiday photos (6687 photos), and used them to create a photomosaic of the Queen Mary 2 (image from Wikpedia).

Australia Lego Mosaic

Well after three nights we have it... my latest Lego creation..

Australia Lego Mosaic

It used up pretty much all of my blue pieces.  That was why I put the whale and the compass rose there - to try and fill up the space with something other than blue.  I was going to put something in the top right corner but nothing worked.

The picture of Australia was from Google Earth.  The whale and the compass rose were heavily modified from Google image searches - it's tricky working with so few pixels!

Bigger version on conspiracy.

Half the reason I'm back into Lego mosaicing at the moment is because of Eric Harshbarger (whose site I recently visited again from a link I have on one of my homepages).  Seriously, the dude is my hero. 

He's also the reason I discovered Mazaika.  The last time I used Mazaika I only had 11000 photos that I gave it to index.  Five years later and I could easily give it nearly 100000 photos!  (although some of those would be repeats due to resizing). 

So anyway it's busy indexing.

Worked some more on the Lego mosaic tonight, and may have finished the bulk of the coloured bit, but Grant and Jen came over to pick up the work phone, so Grant and Stu went and had cigars out the back.
