MozoDojo 2.4.1

>>> A gallery of realizations here... <<<

MozoDojo is a photo-mosaic builder. It helps automatically creating a mosaic of images, that looks like (from a little distance) a given image. This image taken on the APOD site (Astronomy picture of the day) has been computed with other space images taken on the same site. The mosaic can be rendered at a high resolution, to be printed as a poster.

MozoDojo allows using images from iPhoto, iTunes, shelves from Delicious Library (a commercial software to reference books, movies, etc.), Aperture, or files from a custom folder.

MozoDojo uses several modern technologies provided by MacOS X Tiger, like CoreImage, QuartzComposer, CoreData, Spotlight, Quicktime and multithreading, to provide the fastest experience possible.
