Abstract

We describe a process for creating an image mosaic—a collection of small images arranged in such a way that when they are seen together from a distance they suggest a larger image. To visually suggest the larger form, the small images are arranged to match a large picture as much as possible, and then their colors are adjusted to better suggest the overall form. Arrangement of the small images may be either manual or automatic. Adjustment of the colors in the small image to further suggest the larger picture is fully automatic and employs a new color correction scheme that generalizes traditional halftoning.
