Photo Mosaics FAQ

How many small photos do you need for a beautiful mosaic?

We advise you to send as many photos as possible, at least 150 different photos, without exceeding the limit of 1600. If, however, you are unable to gather more than 150 photos, we will study them to see if it is possible to artificially increase the number of photos through multiple use by specific cropping. However, it is important to understand that the more images you have, the more accurate the rendering will be. The aim is to achieve the best possible mosaic by avoiding too many image repetitions. From 350 photos onwards, we already obtain a very nice result.

Are the thumbnails duplicated?

The more pictures you send us, the less repetition there will be and the better the result will be. If you only gather 150 photos and the final mosaic contains 2800, there will be a lot of duplication. Even if you manage to provide as many photos as possible, duplication of the same thumbnail photo will be unavoidable in areas of uniform colour. But don't worry, this will not spoil the look of your custom mosaic.

Do I have to crop the photos myself before sending them?

For the main photo, it is best to work on the original photo. However, if any alterations need to be made, it is best to leave this delicate step to our graphic designer so that he can crop it to fit your mosaic project as perfectly as possible. In the process of creation, the graphic designer takes care of the cropping necessary to optimise your main photo and sends it to your email box for validation. As for the thumbnail photos, we take care of the necessary cropping and rotation manually. However, you have the choice to do these tasks yourself!

What if I want to change the photo of my current creation?

It is possible to change the main photo even if the mosaic creation has already started. This service will require an additional cost. Indeed, the creation of a photo mosaic is a time-consuming and costly process. If the request for a print preview or the execution of retouching is included in our rates, it will cost 19 euros to create a custom mosaic with a new main photo or to add or remove thumbnails.

Is my picture ready to hang?

Yes, as soon as it comes out of its box, the mosaic will be ready to hang on the wall. There is no need to invest in a frame or fasteners.
