How Do They Create Those Mosaics?
Great Find: PicMaster
Target Audience: All Windows users
Content: This week we’re taking a look at a program called PicMaster. There are a number of features this program is known for, but the one I like the best is the mosaic function. I’ve seen those mosaics made with a lot of little photos and wanted to try it. This software makes it easy. Make sure you have a large selection of photos that can be made into thumbnails for the finished piece. Then it’s just a matter of telling the software what you want and waiting a few minutes.
VoilÃÂ¡! A mosaic for your viewing pleasure.
PicMaster is offered as Shareware so you can try it before paying the $29.90 U.S. fee. There are restrictions though, so if you like what this tool offers, you will want to purchase it to eliminate the watermark and realize the full potential of the software.
Here are seven things I like about PicMaster :
- Create mosaics.
- Remove red-eye with the image editor.
- Manage your pictures with the image browser.
- Print individual pages to make a huge poster.
- Morph images (e.g., a cat into a dog).
- Use the filters (preview first) to create neat effects.
- Add sound comments to your pictures.
I had fun with this program. Let me know what you think.
Stay tuned… next week we’ll have a graphics tip!
