Difference between a shape collage made from a picture/logo and a Photo mosaic

A photo mosaic tries to re-create the exact original picture using smaller pictures. In contrast, a shape collage only captures the basic shape. It isn't worried about the specific colours of the original image.

If you're looking to make a photo mosaic, you can do so using our TurboMosaic software. In this post, we will use FigrCollage software to make a shape collage from a picture.

Turn a Picture/Logo into a Shape Collage - Step by Step Instructions

1. Open FigrCollage software and select an output size for your shape collage, and set cell style and cell placement. In this example, we will use 16 X 16 output size, the Diamond cell style, and Shape Masked cell placement.

2. Click "Use Picture" as the shape. Select the picture or the logo that you want to turn into a photo collage. You'd be asked to crop the selected image - crop as you want to.

3. Once you've cropped the selected image, FigrCollage will turn it into a black and white shape. Don't worry if the shape edges look jagged; it won't make a difference to the final collage. Adjust the threshold value and click "Set."
