Why? So much can be done in so little time. Take mosaics and photo collages as an example. Back in the day any collage was time consuming to create. Mosaics from photos were even more tedious. In the digital age of photography, both are child’s play with this Mac app.
Click, And Ye Shall Receive
Let me start first with what you get in the cleverly named Photo Jumble app. Mosaics and collages. Grab a large number of photos and create an entirely new composition with drag and drop.
Photo Jumble makes collages with a simple drag and drop. But there are many photo collage apps for the Mac.
Where this one is different is the option for photo mosaics.
It’s still drag and drop but a mosaic has many additional controls and isn’t limited to the traditional rectangular image.
Take a look at this example of a photo mosaic, but look closely at the small images which make up the mosaic itself.
The controls you need to create such a mosaic are powerful and include options for layout, layers, color correction, and even the type and size of the mosaic elements.
To be fair about Photo Jumble, it’s my comic-book-loving husband who found the app. What piqued his interest?
If you look closely at the image above, you’ll see that it’s a mosaic of Stan Lee made up of comic book covers.
How easy is it to create such a mosaic? Photo Jumble also has a variety of image collections (such as the autumn leaves which make up the first image above). These are images with transparent background which are easily used as the non-rectangular elements in a mosaic.
My husband liked the Beer Caps collection.
Photo Jumble also runs on Windows PCs. Setting up a collage is very simple. Setting up a mosaic takes a bit more work because of the need to have shapes to make the mosaic design, but the controls are straightforward and require little more than some time and trial and error.
