Flickr Montager

montager screenI ran across another cool Flickr tool today. Flickr Montager will take any image tag that you enter, and create one of those cool photo mosaics out of the images with the tag you’ve entered. You can choose the form that the mosaic takes by clicking one of the thumbnails from the mosaic itself.

Looks to me like this just overlays a regular grid of pictures over the picture you select, then using transparency to give the illusion of a photo-mosaic. This is not a true photo-mosaic.

I’m working on a PHP page that connects to the Flickr API that does a true and proper photo-mosaic using the averaged colour values of each image. Keep an eye on my site for news.
