    MacOSaiX for Mac is a photo mosaic construction and sharing app for Mac OS X. It is available from several download sites and installs quickly.

    Photo mosaics are composed of hundreds or thousands of small images, all combined to create a larger image when viewed from a distance. By choosing the right colors and brightness of each individual image, the larger image becomes easier to see. MacOSaiX for Mac can take a set of individual images located on your machine or discoverable through Web sites and combine them into shapes that can then be saved and shared. MacOSaiX for Mac can interface with common social media sites for images, such as Flickr, and it can also read images from iTunes (album art, for example). Images from movies can also be captured and used by MacOSaiX for Mac. The MacOSaiX for Mac interface is easy to work with, and as long as you can find suitable images you can be producing mosaics in a matter of minutes.

    Photo mosaics are popular, so software like MacOSaiX for Mac is readily available for many platforms. MacOSaiX for Mac provides a good mix of image mosaicking capabilities along with easier access to sources such as Google Image and Flickr. We enjoyed using MacOSaiX for Mac.

      "It doesn't work. The program keeps shutting down."

      December 21, 2013   |   By minslc

      Version: MacOSaiX 2.1

      Pros

      Download was easy.

      Cons

      But it didn't work!

      Summary

      Just doesn't work. I wish to say something nice but I can't see a result to post anything positive. It just keep shutting down. Never a finished picture. I changed the setting. I restarted the computer. Don't know what else I need to do.

      November 12, 2012   |   By Adamada68

      Version: MacOSaiX 2.1

      Pros

      Does exactly what you want, makes a picture using many pictures.

      Cons

      Takes a LONG TIME... depending on how many frames you want/need.

      Summary

      Although it takes a while to be put together, I can't complain! Low cost and does exactly what I want.

      "Easily achieve surprising results"

      March 12, 2010   |   By don_walker

      Version: MacOSaiX 2.1

      Pros

      Straightforward

      Cons

      Rendering the mosaic takes time -- depending on the number of image sources and speed of your CPU

      Summary

      A one-trick pony with a really neat trick. I used it to create a corporate promotional piece, building a mosaic of the company logo with puzzle-shaped tiles using a source directory of 346 pictures. The program selects and places each image to best match a spot in the resulting mosaic, then continues to optimize placement, shifting images for the best result. A test with current version: 25 minutes to render a mosaic, selecting from a folder of 2696 images to fill 1280 tiles. Very cool!
