Questions about the photo mosaic
Who can see my pictures?
Your order will be processed by us personally and is therefore visible to the Mosapics team. However, the individual images are automatically reduced, compressed and reformatted when uploading, so that your pictures are only available in small format.
Is there something I need to pay attention to for the main picture? Can it be a logo?
For a beautiful photomosaic, we recommend a main picture with many different colors and few details. Actually, there is hardly a picture with which we cannot make into a beautiful photomosaic! Of course, the main picture may also be a logo. The image can also be relatively small for the photomosaic. If there are any difficulties, we will address them with you.
Do the colors of the individual images have to match the colors of the main picture?
Different colors are not a problem. If the colors do not match, we will adjust the colors so that the main picture stays true to color.
Are all uploaded individual images used in my photomosaic?
In general, each image is used at least once in your photo mosaic. Unless more pictures were uploaded than the amount that would fit in the photo mosaic. If certain images interfere with the main picture, however, we reserve the right to remove them.
Can I have only the photo mosaic image file?
You can choose to only purchase the digital file in PDF format. You will also get the PDF version of your mosaic for each product for free.
How many pictures do I need?
More than 50 individual images are optimal, regardless of the product size. Generally, approximately 1500 – 2500 pictures fit into a mosaic. The possibilities range from a single image to thousands! The more images available for the project, the fewer repetitions there are in your photomosaic and the more clearly the main picture can be displayed.
Do you offer mosaics on postcards or as puzzles?
Theoretically, it’s possible to create mosaics in smaller formats. However, the individual images would hardly be recognizable. Since we want to offer our customers only products of the highest quality, we do not offer mosaic postcards and puzzles.
Can the display direction of the individual images change?
In order to provide us with the widest possible variety of individual images for the creation of your mosaic, we also use their respective mirror images in addition to the originals. This can lead to undesirable effects – especially when individual images contain text elements. If you do not agree with the standard mirroring of individual images in your mosaic, please let us know this when submitting the preview request.
What size are the individual images?
We adjust the size of the individual images according to the image format, the number of images, and the type of the main image. They usually lie at an edge length of 1/8” to 1”.

Questions about us
Who are you?
We began in Germany in 2008. Under the name MakeMyMosaic, we created the first photo mosaic. The idea arose when we were looking for a gift for a wedding. We wanted to present a personal gift with photos. We then developed our first photo mosaic. The guests of the wedding were very enthusiastic and there was a demand for more. We decided to professionally distribute photo mosaics in the future. Today, we are represented throughout Europe, and since 2017, also in the USA.
Why a mosaic from Mosapics.com?
There are two different ways to create a photo mosaic. With freeware programs, or other manufacturers, often only one photo collage is created and the main picture is added over it as a transparent layer. These are not real photo mosaics. We have developed a mosaic software that works with a lot of different parameters and positions the individual images so that they are used at the right place in the main image. This way, we achieve much clearer individual images and it is a true photo mosaic, in which the main picture emerges from the individual images.
When creating the free preview, all our mosaics are edited and optimized by hand. Furthermore, we will give you individual tips on your mosaic and also rework your change requests for free. A friendly and personal customer contact is very important to us.
There is also a great deal of attention paid to the production process, especially with the product canvas. Thanks to our many years of experience, we have been able to optimize a lot so we can produce the best possible print quality for all products. For this reason, we also use a specially developed and high-quality fabric for canvas on which the individual images are most clearly visible. But also our other products are all produced in the highest quality. Unlike other manufacturers, there are no small pixel dots in the individual images.
