Photo Mosaics are a fun way to combine your photos into a collage.

Make a Photo Mosaic from Blank Canvas

If you have a mosaic layout in mind then you can start from a blank canvas and build your layout. For example, we would like to get the 4 picture mosaic collage arrangement shown in the following sample mosaic.

Automatically Layout Photos into a Mosaic

If you are looking to make a photo mosaic from a large number of photos — it would be time consuming to manually build an arrangement as described above. 

Here’s TurboCollage to the rescue:

TurboCollage features an intelligent algorithm to automatically layout a set of pictures into a mosaic. In almost all cases, you will get a mosaic layout that doesn’t crop the used pictures at all. Designers, Illustrators, and Concept Artists use this feature to create design boards, reference boards, and mood boards.
