Mosaic, montage or joiner effect from one photo - Week 43


Breaking a picture up in to lots of small squares sounds like a strange thing to do until you see the results. Digital expert Gavin Hoey shows you how to turn a single image into grid of overlapping photos. Often referred to as the David Hockney effect you'll learn some useful techniques including how to make a custom grid and some great layer handling tips.

Gavin - I have LOVED your tuts through Photoshop Roadmap for quite a while. I only recently thought of looking for your site. Now I'm working my way through ALL your tuts here and I absolutely cannot adequately express my gratitude!!!! You are the BEST at at presenting tuts I've seen anywhere and even when the title/pic look like something I wouldn't be interested in or already know, when I take the tut I find out it's also awesome and you still give me more tips than I knew! This one in particular I want to bless you for! I have a freebie blog for digital scrapbookers and when I make them alphas, I have stopped making each letter on a separate layer because I simply don't have the time. I'd experimented long ago with how to make an action to do it, but failed, though I make and use actions regularly. The secret was making and using the grid!!!! HUGE HUGS from the Deep South (USA)!!!! All the people who take my gifts will thank you too as now they will receive them with each letter on it's own layer! God bless you Gavin! I can't wait to do the rest of the tuts here - working my way from newest to oldest. Truly, God bless you!!! Lynette
