hi... and thank you andrea and aeracryon very much for replying. sorry for the delay on my part but the holidays was a little hectic here. you know whwat i mean? anyhow, how was your holidays? hope all went well.
aeracryon, yes, i think you have the right idea. what i would like to do is this; for sure i want the mosaic to be able to go online, on a website, but i would love to be able to show the mosaic being "built". just like a puzzle! every time you add a little image, the more of the mosaic (main image) shows up.
please if you have a chance look at this link/image here... http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q99/ ... estion.gif
ok... so... that image for instance is a silhouette and there is a question mark in the midle. once you start adding the tiny images, the face of the person would start showing up, but the rest would still be the layer that is black with the question mark.
i was also hoping that there would be away that the tiny images would only stay inside the silhouette being used, for instance in this case, the tiny images that are creating the mosaic would only go inside the black silhouette. and you could have different silhouettes of course... people's faces, animal shapes, objects etc.
is this really hard to accomplish? would any of you be able to help me a bit? i promisse i would put all my effort in this. i would really appreciate this. not to mention that this would be a neat idea for this program. and andrea, if you are reading this... THANK YOU! your program is AWESOME!
thank you both/all for taking the time in reading this.
