A good week
I predict that this week will be a good one:-)
Heck, I already have a bunch of things lined up for you, so please enjoy.
Today we have a project I've been working on...
The Photo Mosaic...
Here's the 'big picture':
Thanks guys for helping me pick the right picture, I think it's going to turn out spectacularly :-)
Some info on the mosaic....
- Created the print using free software fromandreaplanet.com
- Comprised of approximately2200 800 tiles chosen from a collection of about 550 images relating myStanford experience!
- Yes, there are repeats.
- I allowed the program to adjust the color of each tile to help fit the 'big picture'.
- Will be printed as a 3ft by 2ft poster and put it up in my room :-)
- Kinkos will do this for $4 per square foot. Others want $8/sq.ft. I'm going to need an alternative...The alternative is --Walgreens, 30"x20" for $20 I can live with that :-)-- I'm going to go withImagers. They'll do the 36"x 24" for $33 and with a super quick turn around!!
- Each tile will be about.75" x .5" 1"x.75" when printed out
- The full size version isa 60Mb, 60 megapixel 80Mb, 97 megapixel jpeg. This achieves over 320dpi for the print size.
Some info on the 'big picture':
- I used the "smart blur" photoshop filter on the original to decrease the detail. the mosaics come out better on pictures that have solid patches of color.
- I also photoshopped out some of shadows from the original because in the mosaic the shadows were confusing.
- The 'big picture' is really small, i think this helps keep the mosaic simple.
On Wednesday I will show you another project I've been working on :-)
