    Hey Guys,
    I am new to this forum, however I thought I would get all of you expert opinions on the topic. I am thinking about offering a new service/product to my customers that I guess is being called a photo mosaic.

    I would love to know how Picture Mosaics does this (to see examples of what I mean go to their Gallery). Does anyone know how to do this easily in PhotoShop CS5? Or know of high end programs I can download that will output these files in layered PSD or other workable format.

    I just think this would be a great item to offer brides to be, and for other large events... and not to say generate some additional $$. I have contacted Picture Mosaics to see if there software is for sale, it is not. However, they said they do have a discounted rate for photographers, but if I could do this myself and create the quality that that do it would be great. The few photo mosaic programs that I have tried do not seem to be getting quality and feel of a "true" mosaic.

    Any idea or insight would be great!

    Thanks,
    Will Gardner

    I suspect few photographers would use this technique, and I think you would be better served finding a graphic arts forum for your query.

    Do you think it would be a good product? do you think it would sell?

    I see the mosaic feature under the filter pixelate, but that just makes a blocky photo, it doesn't make the photo out other selected small photos :(... or am I not looking in the right spot?
