surprisingly, Walt Disney World. If you're a

you likely have hundreds of Disney photos tucked away at home in boxes and on CDs
where no one can see them. Where's the magic in that?
Whether it's a scrapbook of a wonderful vacation, a slideshow
set to music, or a mosaic of all your memories in one print, Disney creations
are our speciality.
And if you don't think you have enough photos for a mosaic, don't worry –
we'll fill out your collection with generic Disney tiles from our extensive library
of theme parks and characters. Just let us know what parks you visited and what
attractions and characters you saw!

Disney Logo Mosaic
his simple design is our favorite – the familiar
Mickey ears with a rainbow background, consisting of about 1200 tiles. Most of
the dark center photos were taken at night at special shows like SpectroMagic and
IllumiNations. Colorful Disney characters make up much of the background –
Tigger's orange, Pooh's and Pluto's yellow, Mickey's red and black, and even
Mike from Monsters Inc.'s green.
Mickey Mouse Bow Tie Mosaic

(We later learned it's the logo of the folks at
It too comprises 1200
tiles – all unique, as always – taken during our family Disney
vacations since 1996.
Epcot Photo Mosaic
ost of our mosaics are built on simple, conceptual designs.
We prefer it when the individual tile photos are crisp and clear, and not blurred by
a semi-transparent overlay of the master image. The latter (along with other graphical
gymnastics) is necessary when creating mosaics of actual people or places, because
otherwise the fine detail is lost. Occasionally, however, we'll create a true
"photo" mosaic, such as this one of Spaceship Earth on a perfect day. The master image
looks excellent from a distance, but the individual tiles are not quite as sharp as in the
Mickey Ears or Mickey Bow Tie examples because of the need for an overlay.
