Photo mosaics are a memory hoarder's dream. They are the simplest way to display hundreds, even thousands, of photos in one piece of art. In photo mosaics, tile-sized images are brought together to create one overall image. Numerous programs are designed to make photo mosaics from your own computer. Users have the choice of freeware or shareware programs, that can be downloaded for free for full use, or trial versions downloaded with limited use.

Shareware Photo Mosaic Programs

Arc Soft Photo Montage has editing capabilities to take home videos and create stills for tiling, for users who may not have enough of their own images to make up an entire mosaic. If users still need more tiling options, Arc Soft comes with more than 20,000 pre-loaded micro-images. Mazaika offers unlimited image database size, even in trial versions, so users can include as many images as they want or have. The only photo mosaic program that allows manual to any tile in a finished mosaic, Mazaika gives users complete creative control. Mosaic Creator gives users the ability to make video and text mosaics in addition to regular photo mosaics. Unique to this program is the option of non-rectangular cells, including polygon and puzzle piece shapes.

Freeware Photo Mosaic Programs

AndreaMosaic (AM) Standard Edition limits users to 30,000 tiles per mosaic, and 100,000 images in a collection, but the program can be downloaded entirely free. AM also offers a professional addition for a donation of £22, allowing you to create mosaics up to 100 gigapixels and ensures you receive any future updates to programming. MacOSaiX is one of the simplest photo mosaic programs to use and is based on Apple's Mac operating system interface. This program can only handle saving images up to 10,000 pixels by 10,000 pixels and can only be run on Mac OS X, but it's extremely user-friendly.
