Combine images to mosaic

Post by Matthias » Mon Feb 02, 2004 10:04 am

Hi

is it possible to create a mosaic of a lot of small pictures with XnView? All these images have a size of 64x48 pixel and should be combined in one big image with 9 colums. Is this possible with XnView? Or do you know another software which can do this?

If you want to create one large image out of several images, you can use "Tools->Create Panorama". Please note that in XnView, panorama images aren't 360 degrees images but several images merged together to one. XnView aligns the images side by side and merges them to a larger image. You can align the images horizontally or vertically. In the XnView online help, chapter "Create panorama images" you will find a sample image.

E.g. to create a 3x3 image mosaic you have to apply "Create panorama" four times:

- First merge (horizontal):
[1][2][3]

- Second merge (horizontal):
[4][5][6]

- Third merge (horizontal):
[7][8][9]

- Fourth merge (vertical)
[1][2][3]
[4][5][6]
[7][8][9]

Think this is pretty clear. Four a 9x9 image you have to do 10 merges (9 horizontal, 1 vertical). It's many steps but not too complicated. But if you want to create many mosaics, I think you better look for a software which provides a special function to do this.

Hi

i have to create a mosaic of about 700 images in a way like this:

[01][02][03]..[09]
[10][11][12]..[13]

I haven't found a free software which is able to do this.

So *feature request* :-)

You can do that with XnView, but it takes a bit of time and 10 merges: You merge 1st the about 70 images vertically and make a large target image and then merge the 9 target images horizontally.
