So, it’s true confessions time. Yes, I, Will Gomez, Mac geek, fiancé to another Apple watcher, payment making BMW driver, used to play with Legos. That was back in the day when you could buy Lego brick and actually build something. Here’s a way to bring that Lego look to your photos?
Say What? Huh?
Yes, Lego photos. Or, more accurately named, Photobricks. It’s a free Mac app which takes your photos and turns them into a Lego-like mosaic creation.
Instead of just a boring photo, Photobricks turns the photo into Lego-like brick art (if it’s even possible to call anything Lego and art).
The resulting image is really a digital mosaic made of Lego-like parts. You get options to customize the mosaic, and even change the color of individual bricks.
Cool, huh? Photobricks works in fullscreen mode, can be saved as an image file or a PDF, and you can specify the mosaic size (up to 200 Lego units).
While it’s not likely you’ll want to apply Photobricks to all your photos, it is a unique application and could be used as a template to build a Lego project from a photo.
Anyway, that’s the way I see it.
If the proof is in the taste of the pudding, and seeing is believing, the Photobricks is worth a try for those Mac users who want something different and free.
If your itch to play with your digital Legos occurs while you’re away from your Mac, have no fear, an iPhone version is near.
