This is the famous stained glass Dove of Peace in St. Peter's Basilica. I took photo used as a main image while visiting Rome in June 2005. Corel Photo ClipArt image collection was used as tiles. To avoid any image distortion only landscape oriented pictures were used. 24,000+ different images were used as a library for this mosaic.
Mazaika settings that were used:
- Flips usage: Original images only
Mazaika can use any tile as it is only.
- Tile Repetitions: 5
There are repeated tiles. Each tile was used only 5 times or less.
- Tile Distance: 15
Distance between the repeated tiles is 15 tiles or more.
- Blend percent: 0
There is no blending with the original image. Tile colors are the same as were in the original collection.
- Mosaic Size: 70 x 90 tiles
- Output Size: 37,800 x 36,450 pixels
