|Preview tile screen||Home|
You may easy preview every single tile in the mosaic by Right-Click on it. Please use Ctrl-Click if you have one-button mouse. There is always an option Show file that brings up this screen with opened image.
If program can't find the image, it will say "File not found" at the screen caption and shows stored thumbnail instead.
If the image that was used for the cell did not existed as a file, Mazaika keeps image data as an embedded image object inside the project file. This situation may happens if you use drag and drop image from some other application (e.g. an image from a web page opened in Safari or some some other web browser) directly into Mazaika, without saving it to a file previously. This image will be embedded into mosaic project.
If the embedded image is large, it will be rescaled to 450 pixels on a longest size. Usually this size is enough for average mosaic printing. If you think that you'll need a larger tiles for your output, please don't use embedded images. Please save the image into a file and use this image file for placing into the mosaic cell.
