I want to create a mosaic that will be printed on a 6 foot x 8 foot blanket using a high quality printer. I want to use all 578 that I have in my folder.

Please advise on what selection to make under Mosaic Size, Mosaic Resolution and Tile Size for maximum clarity on that large of a print. My desire is to have the images shade & form naturally into my base image....where from a distance it is slightly noticed that other images are making up the larger/base image.

All images were taken using my phone camera. The resolution that it outputs is 4128x2322.

Thank you for your help.

* Use a Main Image that has an aspect ratio of 8x6
* Set Mosaic Size: 8' (or 8 feet)
* Set Mosaic Resolution: 180 PPI
* Set Tile Size:
play with various values and look at the resolution Mosaic. I would try for example 2000 tiles, 3000 tiles, 4000 tiles.

If you have the professional version of AndreaMosaic then you can change
* Set Mosaic Resolution: 300 PPI
Which is very high (300 PPI = 300*300 = 90.000 pixels per square inch) and good for a nice print.

Thank you!

The properties listed for the picture I'd like to use are:

dimesions: 2005x3256
width: 2005 pixels
height: 3256 pixels
horizontal resolution: 72 dpi
vertical resolution: 72 dpi
bit depth: 24
resolution unit: 2
color representaion: sRGB


I am not sure what most of this means & I don't see anything that says "aspect ratio"...

Please advise.

How much to support Andrea for the professional version!?

Thank you again!

If you want a mosaic that has a width of 8 feet and a height of 6 feet then you need a main image that proportionally has a similar size. For example width = 8 inch and height = 6 inch. Or width = 800 pixels and height = 600 pixels. Or Width = 1600 pixels and height = 1200 pixels (I just multiplied by 2).

Your image has a width of 2005 pixels and a height of 3256 pixels. How can this fit into 8 x 6 feet without cropping or stretching?
