Mosaic and Canvas Panels Tutorial


Quite a number of my dear readers have asked me how I do these panel mosaics pictured above.
Well, I'm absolutely not a computer wiz but I can (hopefully) give you enough understandable instructions on how to create these mosaics.
First, go to Big Hug Labs  and about the middle of the upper right side, you will see a drop down window.  
Click on "Framer" and a new window will open.....choose "Canvas Panels" from the drop down menu.....make sure you choose between "Canvas Panels" or "Portrait" as this is the orientation of your original photo.
Hit browse if you are getting the photo from your computer or you can upload from Flickr or Facebook.
After uploading your photo, hit "Create" and it's all done.....save to your computer or wherever you would like.
Now, for a little more magic.....after you've saved your canvas panel photo......go back to the upload page and hit the drop down menu again and click on  "Frosted Glass"  or "Portrait" and then use browse to get your "panel" photo from your computer or upload from wherever you saved your "panel" photo.
Hit Create and voila'.....you've got a glass frame on your mosaic photo.
Hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and if you have any questions,  please feel free to e-mail me.
Thanks for stopping by!
I would really enjoy hearing about how this worked out for you.....I love your comments.

Thanks for sharing the info again. I didn't copy it down the first time and then couldn't remember where I'd seen it. You've shown how pretty a mosaic the technique produces.
