Mosaic, Fill A Photo With Photos

Create a bit of an optical illusion, filling one photo with many smaller photos, or at least, many copies of a couple of smaller photos.

In this Photoshop Effects tutorial, we’re going to create a bit of an optical illusion, filling one photo with many smaller photos, or at least, many copies of a couple of smaller photos. The number of smaller photos you use for this effect is completely up to you. If you view the photo from a distance, you’ll see the larger main photo, and if you view it up close, you’ll see all the smaller photos inside of it.
I originally saw this effect used in a job recruitment poster for a well-known restaurant chain, but it also works great with family photos, wedding photos, or just as a fun thing to do with photos of all your friends.
Learning Photoshop has never been easier!

And mom has a couple of kids. Here’s the photos of the kids:

We’re going to create our effect by taking the photos of the two kids and using them to fill the photo of their mom. Here’s the effect we’re going for:
