PHOTO USAGE & PRINT - When our software renders your image it uses the colour, shadows, natural contours and lines in each tile image to it's best and positions them accordingly. We can force the software to use 100% of your images however this can impact the visual outcome but we always strive to use as many of those you supply as possible. Our preferred option is to allow it to do its thing which may result in between 15% and 30% of supplied images not being used in the final Photo Mosaic (average use 85%). This is primarily because these are a true mosaic, the background image is made solely with the tiles and it has no semi transparent overlay as lesser versions of mosaic makers do! We cannot ensure particular images are used. That is why more is best as far as photo supply is concerned. Background choice is also key to how many photos are used overall and we always work with you and advise options to achieve the best results!
FINAL PRINT SIZE - When we print we over print to allow for variations in frame sizes. The quality of these prints are such that we recommend professional mounting.
