Click 2 Crop was developed as a help utility for image mosaic program Mazaika.
|Mazaika can create mosaic images i.e. big images made of many small
You can find Mazaika software and lots of mosaic examples here:
Click 2 Crop is very useful when people ask to make mosaic from very
limited number of pictures. For example if they send their photos from
vacations, about 200 or even less.
Using Click 2 Crop it is very easy to increase number of tiles in a few times,
up to 1000 instead of 200.
We have a photo of four men in training room. This shot was taken with a 4 megapixel digital camera, it
is large and not very interesting, to said honest.
Lets split it into few different crops to use every one as a tile for mosaic. Because of our main image is
landscape but tiles will be portraits we can crop at least two different large areas. Then as far as
resolution of image is much higher then needed for tiles we can crop smaller areas like two people out of
group of three standing on the left. Also let's enlarge people's faces and take few crops of notable
equipment like music center in the corner and good visible black belt.
Now we have a twelve tiles instead of one.
If you will try to make this procedure with general purpose image editor like a PhotoShop it will takes
about a couple of minutes because for every crop you will need to:
1 - open image;
2 - select crop area;
3 - make crop;
4 - save with new file name.
(Repeat these 4 items 12 times for 12 tiles).
With Click 2 Crop it will takes only few seconds:
1 - select crop area;
2 - double click on image to crop and save.
