Turn your holiday photos into a beautiful photomosaic

(Image credit: Claire Gillo / Digital Camera World)

In this project, we’re going to show you how to make one image from hundreds. Our main image was taken in India on a trip a few years ago. The rest of the images that make up the portrait were also taken on that trip, and include the local children and places that we visited.  

Before you can start making your mosaic, you’ll need to gather a batch of images that you want as the background scene. You also need to select a strong lead image that will go over the top. When you copy your background images into a new folder make sure these are copies of the originals, as you’re going to be resizing them to a small size.
