Santa: High Quality Zoom and Pan Photo Mosaic
Mazaika v2.4 was used to create this mosaic.
3000+ Christmas, New Year and Santa tiles pictures were used for the library.
These tiles were created with help of Clip 2 Crop utility,
i.e. there were used not only postcards as they are
but also different cropped areas of these cards were used.

Mazaika settings that were used:
- Blend percent: 0
There is no blending with the original image. Tile colors are the same as they were on the original postcard scans.
- Mosaic Size: 40 x 40 tiles
It takes 15 seconds to calculate mosaic with P4 - 2.8 GHz. (512 RAM) WinXP system. It takes also a minute to save the mosaic as a 5,600 x 7,800 pixels TIFF file. It was 122 MB file and it can be printed as a 18" x 26" poster with 300 dpi resolution.
- Single Tile Size: 140 x 187 pixels
If printed at 300 dpi every single tile will be about 0.5 x 0.7 inch.
