    This is such a cool technique. Thanks, Jan!

    In 2021, I “read” 142 audiobooks. My pattern is made up of all the book covers (and in the order they were read). Thanks for looking at my page!

    Oooof! Here's my slow and painful attempt at your challenge to create a mosaic photo effect.

    I used 100 of the view photos I took during a helicopter tour of the Big Island to create the overlaid mosaic, overlaid on the picture of us with the helicopter in the background right after the tour.

    I use The Gimp, no tutorials, the one linked by another scrapper uses a plug-in which is unstable on mac, and the other mosaic program others have suggested didn't seem to be supported for my OS....
    So I ended up placing 18 guides manually, resizing 100 photos one by one, because the Gimp doesn't let you scale multiple layers at once, and placing them myself in the squares, and cropping them to square because they all were rectangular but I just couldn't face the challenge of doing math of how many rectangles I needed in my square layout (plus some photos were portrait and others landscape)
    Do I wish I had so many tiny photos it looked more like a mosaic and as nice as some of the other layouts, yes. But on the plus side, I like that I can see some of the views in my tiny mosaic pics especially in the sky portion.
    EDIT: as I was typing this, I had a rare brain wave and realized I could scale down the mosaic portion and copy it 4 times (man am I glad it was square and therefore easy math). So now you can't see the views quite as much, but the end result doesn't look too bad
    I sure hope I fulfilled the brief and that you appreciate the effort if not the end result...

    Not sure where I've gone wrong but I can't seem to get my photos to resize properly/show anything of value in them when I manually resize them in the contact sheet in PSCC. They are all landscape photos so orientation shouldn't be an issue but I'm well and truly stumped. I did try using a different method (not photoshop) and got stuck there too so decided probably best to go back to the tutorial if possible.
