PaD Mosaic

Well, you knew I'd end up doing something like this. :) I had thousands of pictures that I didn't use during my Picture a Day for a Year project, and HAD to find some way to use them! This picture was made with 3,270 images taken during my project. The final picture has 4,240 little square pictures in it, so you'll notice some of them show up more than once. All the little pictures were taken by me during my PaD year. The full sized version of this picture is a bit bigger than this and it prints out quite clearly at 20x30 inches.

I figured I'd post it here to give the rest of you one more idea of what you can do at the end of your project. Enjoy! Oh yeah, one other thing. The software I used was Centarsia.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

That has to be one of the coolest pictures I've seen on Pbase... What a great way to use those left over pixels..

you are sooo clever! how long did this take you to put together?
Squared C24-Sep-2006 17:35
This is such a great idea. I've often wondered what to do with the photos that just didn't make it. Now I have an idea! Thanks! Do you know of any other software that does this?
Lucy 13-Jun-2006 23:20
This is excellent, I just looked up Centarsia and it seems they are 'no longer supporting or distributing Centarsia' so I am really disappointed! :( This is wonderful, well done!

this is phenomenal....WOW! i'm impressed. thanks for inspiring me.

Amazing work. Your montage inspired me to do one for myself, so I did it over the weekend for my first 6 months of PaD. I'll have it up later tonight for tomorrow's posting. Thanks for the idea, and the tips on how to execute it. I printed it out at 11x17 and already dropped it off for framing - it's so awesome seeing it in print. I can't wait for the full year's 20x30 version. Thanks a ton. WynnA

This is simply fabulous!! I'd love to do something like it but it seems too daunting.
Guest 10-Jan-2005 16:47
That's great Paul. Truly something different at Pbase, which I'd love to have a go at some time.
Ron Lutz II09-Nov-2004 16:26
Holy smokes! That's just amazing!
Guest 08-Nov-2004 09:11
Fantastic work putting together the mosaic. I can imagine the software you used took quite a while shuffling all those images around to lay them in place.
Pepe Zyman18-Oct-2004 19:00
You are an amazing guy!
Leo Charette15-Oct-2004 13:40
This is one of the more impressive images I've seen on PBase. What a creative idea and so perfectly executed. Guess I should save all to PAD discards, huh? Thanks for the inspiration.
Guest 24-Aug-2004 14:12
Wow! This is awesome!
Dawn09-Aug-2004 02:48

Goodness, this is something else. Reminds me of the introduction to the Michael Parkinson chat show we had until recently over here on the BBC.
Guest 20-Jul-2004 02:20

This IS so cool!! OK! I feel like a little kid playing "Where's Waldo" I found 3 of me, 2 with my pink scarf and one of me holding up the picture you gave me outside my house. Did I get them all or was there a special secret piccie in there?? LOL!!
Lou Giroud26-Jun-2004 07:41
