Mosaizer - Not just another mosaic creator

Mosaizer Pro Download

A copy of Mosaizer Pro can be freely downloaded. You can install the software on many computers if you like, but you cannot use the software for commercial purposes without first requesting a commercial license from APP Helmond. With a commercial license also extra features are unlocked (and thus released from demo mode).

With Mosaizer Pro exiting features are available, such as the use of canvas textures and brush masks with random painting to make your picture very special and photorealistic. Mosaizer Pro 12 easily outperforms

Mosaizer Pro 12 has become a trendsetting application!
With Mosaizer Pro 12 the software has grown into a stable and fast application. Thanks to the users to address this and many thanks to the beta testers who provided useful feedback, we believe that this version 12 is now stable. Mosaizer Pro 11 was already packed with a rich set of new features, nowhere found in any other similar application. Mosaizer Pro is now trendsetting a new feature which is not found in any existing software: double layered transparent mosaics. It applies the concept of chroma-keying like in many modern movies. A truly unique feature!
With Mosaizer Pro 12 have have topped the list of features again. The most recent exciting feature is to apply a so-called tile density masks
  With the black areas you can set the local tilesize
. With this tool you can accurately indicate where the tile size must be small or large. Finally, we have added the possibility to generate animations of the mosaic, flying tiles
  From left to right some frames from the mosaic movie
from anywhere into the final result. See examples below.

We have a made couple of tutorials available on YouTube. Here is a list of the video tutorials:
  • Use of the graphical user interface, tweak the colour quality and how to use and create picture libraries (link).
  • Apply regular and non-rectangular patterns, and how to use the smart pattern feature (link).
  • Pre- and post-processing, how to use the Mosaizer tool, how to create single cell mosaics, and how to use the genuine paintbrush (link).
  • Apply single and puzzle masks (link).
  • Apply multiple and density masks (link).
  • Make a true black and white picture mosaic, and how to effectvely apply the right colour matching engine (link).
  • Single and double layer transparent mosaics (link).
  • Create a super mosaic of 1.8 x 1.4 meter in size and how to use the chroma key feature to use green screen pictures in a picture mosaic (link).
Some examples of what can be done with transparent mosaics
Transparency comes in a variety of options. When a mono-layered mosaic is made and the picture library is of .png format the final mosaic is also transparent (left picture). Next, when a double-layered mosaic is made, the bottom layer can remain opague, but the chrom-key for the top-layer will allow for transparency by removing that color from the library picture (middle picture). Finally, when a picture library is created with a color background (e.g. all kinds of shapes on a white background), that white can be removed and made transparent (right picture). And many variations of course.

Video examples of dynamic mosaic creations With the latest version of Mosaizer also mosaic videos can be created (version 12 is planned for release at early December 2014). This creative tool allows you to implode or explode the mosaic. Several settings are available to define the size, the frame-rate, the compression codec, the tile path to follow and many more. Here you find some great examples of creating video with our applications.

We have been working hard on exciting new features
Development of Mosaizer Pro never stops. In most cases users request new features, like multi-masking and use of .PNG files for masks. Sometimes we come across a great idea and start working out a new feature. Sometimes a new idea leads to a new product, such as Collaizer and Picture Frame Wizard. And sometimes a comparable application ('competitor product') show a new feature which is so badly implemented, or responds extremely slowly to our settings and changes, we believe we can do better. These are some examples of what has been made available with recent versions.

We need your help!
In the past year we have noticed a steadily growing user base for our three major free applications: Mosaizer Pro, Textaizer Pro and Wordaizer. We offer our software for free for non-commercial use. But this takes a lot of time and effort to make it right, so we need your help! If the software contains errors, bugs or any other issue, please let us know! This is the only way to find the hidden issues, and your help and feedback is highly appreciated.
Thank you!

Extra downloads: picture libraries

These libraries of pictures can help you to create your first photo mosaic piece of art. We highly recommend to download these libraries, and read the tutorials on how to create a library for Mosaizer Pro (can be downloaded from the 'Goodies' page).

Extra download 1: 150 extra masks in .PNG and .BMP format

This is the installer to add about 150 more masks to the Mosaizer Pro application. It does not work with previous (7.x and 8.x) versions because the masks are mainly of the .PNG file format.

Extra download 2: Mosaizer Lite (we think it's the fastest photo-mosaics creator on the web: a 400 Mb photo mosaic in just 8 seconds...)

This is the stable release of Mosaizer Lite. It works on XP systems (SP1, SP2 and SP3), on Vista systems (Home, premium, Ultra, SP1) and of course on Windows 7 versions. It works both on 32bit and 64bit systems. Please read the Help file to get you started. In short: after installation you can immediately start making photo mosaics, because it has two pre-installed libraries ! More libraries can be downloaded from the 'Goodies page'.

    Mosaizer Lite test version 1.5 build 26:

Extra download 3: Mosaizer CLI, the Command Line Interface version

This is the stable release of MosaizerCLI where the user can apply a dos command to execute the mosaic creation. This version has two major functionalities: to create a photo mosaic from scratch (a new mosaic), or to update an existing photo mosaic with a new picture. The software is very suitable for dynamic websites, where visitors can upload their picture, while the Mosaizer CLI creates or updates a photo mosaic. It currently runs only under windows (so only usable for Windows servers).
This is not freeware, but shareware. Please contact APP Helmond for license information.
