How to Create a Photomosaic With Photoshop Elements


Photomosaics are images made up of many parts that come together to make a single image. This is done by taking a single photo (or other image) and dividing it into parts. You can find software to do this automatically, or a graphics application like Photoshop Elements can do this. If you choose the latter, you might be a put off by some of the overly complex tutorials for doing this. Never fear, there is an easy way to get the same result in Photoshop Elements.

  • Load the image you want to turn for the mosaic into your computer.

  • Choose the "Selection Brush" tool from the toolbar on the left. In the options at the top, select the brush you want and drag on the slider to adjust the width, don't make it too big, and change the mode to "Add."

  • Use the rulers to decide where you want to divide your photo. Then use the tool to draw a horizontal red line. It does not have to be straight or sharp. In fact, you want it to be a little rough.

  • Repeat Step 3 to create a crisscrossing pattern. Go to the "Layers" panel and click on the "New Layer" button.

  • Select the "Paintbucket" tool from the toolbar. Everything except the painted lines will automatically be selected.

  • Go to the options and set the fill color to what you want for the spaces between the mosaic tiles. Select "Select" from the menu and choose "Inverse."

  • Click with the "Paintbucket" tool to fill the spaces with the color. Save your work.
