If more than one cell is selected on the main screen only selected cells would be saved.
Layout - Here you may see a miniature preview of the finished mosaic, as it would be seen from a
Units - You may choose Pixels, Inches or Centimeters as a mosaic size units.
Resolution - You need to set this value to allow the program to convert pixels units into inches or
Mosaic Width, Mosaic Height - You have to set one of these values, the other will be calculated
These are sizes of the mosaic area of the output image only. I.e. if you'll set size of mosaic to 10 x 10
inches and later add 10-inch border for all sides, your full output would be 30 x 30 inches.
Grid - You may use these options to add grid lines on the output mosaic.
Draw grid - Check this check box to draw the grid lines.
Grid color - This will bring up the Color Dialogue box to select a color of the grid lines.
Line width - Input width of grid line in pixels here.
Borders - You may use these options to add borders to the output mosaic.
Add borders - Check this check box to add the borders.
Border color - This will bring up the Color Dialogue box to select a color For the borders.
Top border, Left border, Right border, Bottom border - Input the width of borders here. Width of the
borders should be set in the current measurement units.
Image output info - You may see general information about the output image sizes here.
Single tile size - Size of a single tile in all measurement units.
Output size - Overall size of output image in all measurement units. Sizes of borders count towards the
overall size here.
Additional saves options:
Color enhance - These options allow you to change the colors of your tiles to improve the final output.
Sometimes this is the only way to get good looking mosaic, especially when mosaic was made using
limited count of tiles in the library. You can use Color correction simultaneously with Blending to get
excellent results. Try playing with different values.
Color correction % - The Color correction option "shifts"
the colors in a tile to match the average
colors of the same area in the original image. This is a similar procedure to correcting the "white
balance" of an image that you may have seen in other graphics programs. For example, it may make the
tile seem more blue, if the underlying area is quite blue. When a high percentage of correction is used,
you may lose some details from the tile image (especially in very dark or very bright areas), but
generally this method is very effective, and can be quite subtle, even for values of 50% and upwards.
Blend tile color % - The Blend tile color option blends the output
mosaic with the sampled version of
the original main theme image (this is a reduced resolution version of the original). At low values
(between 0 and 25%), this can drastically improve the final output image without it being too obvious that
you have cheated. Above 30% the detail in the tiles begins to be lost in favour of the original image. This
option can work extremely well between 10% and 20% especially when combined with a Color
correction of between 20% to 50%
Detailed blend - If Detailed blend is enabled, the blend option above is performed with the original
image, instead of the sampled version. This is much less subtle. If the blend percent is high you will see
every small details of your original image visible through the mosaic tiles. It will be quite obvious that
you have used blending. There may be situations where you want this effect. Mostly though, you will
probably want to disable "Detailed blend". In this case your mosaic will be blended with a reduced
resolution version of the original, producing a much more subtle effect.
Sharpen tiles - When enabled Mazaika will "Sharpen" the resampled tiles. It will give you much sharper
mosaic tiles. Usually it is recommended to enable this option. Please note that if the images that you
use as tiles are already very sharp it maybe good to disable this option to avoid "oversharp" images.
Overprint Col Row numbers: - When enabled, Mazaika overprints a small caption with Col:Row
numbers at top-left corner of each mosaic cell. This can be useful if you want easy locate particular cells
at printed mosaic. Also it can be very useful if you want to print mosaic as a series of separate pictures
and manually assemble these printed photo into mosaic.
Open image after saving - If this checkbox is on program will asks you to open new created image with
your default image viewer.
Save as - Press this button to start saving. It may take up to a few minutes to save large mosaics.
Speed depends on file format, tile count, tile size and additional
options you choose.
Stop - Press this button to stop the saving process at any time.
Show in Explorer - Use this button to quick find a saved file. It will opens a new Windows Explorer
window positioned at the folder where you have saved the image and with the image file selected.
Close - Use this button to close the Output mosaic setup screen.
