This is a night shot of the oldest Ekaterinburg movie theater
It is 60 columns width and 60 rows height mosaic. There are 3600 different images used in this mosaic! Single tile size is 200 x 150 pixels.
Corel Photo ClipArt image collection was used as tile images. To avoid any image distortion only landscape oriented pictures were used. There were 24,000+ different images in the library for this mosaic. There are 60 x 60 = 3600 different images used in this mosaic!
Mazaika settings that were used:
- Flips usage: Horizontal flips
Mazaika can use any tile as it is or it's flipped horizontal version.
- Tile Repetitions: 1
There are no repeated tiles. Each tile was used only ONCE. If it was used as a flipped tile, it could not be used as it was originally.
- Blend percent: 0
There is no blending with the original image. Tile colors are the same as were in the Corel collection.
- Mosaic Size: 60 x 60 tiles
