Here's a fun test made with all (or at least I tried to fit them all) of the tiles you guys made. Of course the subject had to be Helm, since he's the one who started this activity :D I was astonished by the sheer amount of unique tiles; there were over 400 of them! That's over 100,000 pixels! Great job guys!

Sorry for the bad quality of this mosaic picture, the program I used wasn't registered so it allowed me to export only jpg :( But I will update it if I find a way to make it better!

wha... what!? That's amazing! Is there a program that does this, you feed it the tile data and it churns out mosaics?

Yup :) The one I used is called Mazaika. It was a helluva job to crop each tile to a unique file, tho :blind:

PS. and I didn't have any hi-res picture of you, the quality could've been better with better source image :D

wow  ;D the effect is quite nice, the tiled look and the golden pallete go really well together.Gives out a delicious candy like look...Going in and seeing how all the little pixels have a mind of their own is awesome. We should do some more of these =0

The program to me seems to pick a few tiles most fitting for each color and use the same over and over...doesnt seem too concerned with variation. if we're using this program I think it'd be good to divide the big picture in different sections, then assign a set of tiles for each section...that way we assure all the tiles get displayed.

Mind uploading your tile file system for other people, tero?

AWESOME. That made my day.

I second this request. I downloaded Mazaika immediately after I saw this.
Actually, I was wondering if anyone would do this sort of thing. I would've liked to, but I just didn't know where to find a good photomosaic compiler.

I haven't tried this tool but it's in my bookmarks since ages, so maybe it's useful for somebody who doesn't like to download a tool for this task.

Here are the tiles. They are still missing a few, for example I can't get Conceit's tiles to show, so they are not in this bunch. But I will add them later if the link to his tiles gets fixed.

Nice to see that you guys liked the idea that much, it made my day ;D :y:
