    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone could help me. I just finished my project for my
    degree and I have a showcase to do in a couple of weeks to show of the
    product, a piece of software, that I have created. One of the requirements
    is to produce an A2 size poster to attract people to my display.

    As most people I know are going to just print of 4 A4 pages and put them
    together to make one large poster I had thought I could have numerous
    photographs 6x4 of different things relating to my product and then put them
    together to make a mosaic. I have seen software on the internet where you
    supply it with the overall picture and also the individual pictures, it then
    colours each picture accordingly to make the mosaic.

    I know this is easy enough to do on the computer but could anyone point me
    in the right direction as to how I would go about doing this so that I could
    have the individual pictures developed properly. There is a photography
    shop near me doing a deal at the moment which allows me to get the
    photographs printed for about 10p per picture, if I have worked it out
    correctly I think it will take 16 pictures to make an A2 poster.

    Do you think this would look impressive? I just liked the idea of it
    looking like a proper poster to the people walking towards me yet when they
    got up close it would be individual picutres.

    In case you haven't noticed I'm not really up to speed with digital
    photography so I hope you can make sense of what I am trying to do.

    Any help would be much appreciated,

    Thanks

    Why don't you do a 'Hockney' style joiner, they look really impressive and
    are very creative. http://www.leninimports.com/david_hockney_gallery_16.jpg
