Autumn Leaves Photo Mosaic


So, I wanted to participate in a blog event called Mosaic Monday. I've admired the pictures on this blog event before, and I wanted to participate with my first blog photo-Mosiac.

I had to sign up with Flickr, create an account, load photos, then go to a website something like Big Huge Labs; figure out how to load my flickr photos to big huge labs, create the mosaic, download the result, and get the result into this blog. All this effort is a little obsessive, don't you think? Or perhaps it is educational. And to think I used to play Majong or do suduku puzzles late at night.

Here is my first attempt - the next one will be with pictures other then my sample pictures. I took these images, but in future mosaics I will probably get rid of the word sample. But enough for tonight.


Visit Mary’s The Little Red House for beautiful photo mosaics from all over.
Happy Monday everyone!

Love your mosaic today... it's out of the ordinary and eye-catching.... unique and unlike everyone else's. Good job!

Your first attempt is a great success. Love the creative colors.

I take the pics, upload them to my computer, resize & enhance in PaintShop Pro, copy/paste them into a mosaic-sized file, move them around, cut off the excess to create borders... and yes, it IS a lot of work, but I love the creative juices that get going and the community of sharing these every Monday.

Wonderful first mosaic. I did the same as you and then I found out that I already had it on my Picasa link.

Jeanne, Welcome to Mosaic Monday! This is wonderful for a first effort! I love the blues! Did you scan the leaves and then change the color in Photoshop? Beautiful! Thanks for sharing your lovely images at MM. :)

Oh, and you can also download software from Picasa for mosaics. All the photos you publish on your blog are kept in a Picasa web album. That might be another option for you...
