FAQ Answers

  1. I don't have a printer. Is there another way I can look at an annotated version of my mosaic?
  2. There are at least two ways to do this.

    1. You can EMail the annotated image to yourself. The only downside to doing this is that the annotated mosaic is an image (JPG) and you can only zoom in so far.
    2. In iOS 9 and later, you have the option of using Save PDF to iBooks. As a PDF, you can easily zoom in to see details in your annotated mosaic.

  3. What does the Limit button really do?
  4. The Limit button enables and disables a feature in Color Hints Mosaic that can be used to reduce the number of colors seen in your Mosaic. With Limit disabled (the button is BLUE), Mosaic will display as many unique colors as it found when processing your photograph. This could be as many colors as you have rectangles or triangles. So if you chose to use 50x50 rectangles, you could have as many as 2,500 colors in your mosaic.

    There are times you might like to limit the number of colors in the mosaic. This can be useful when you're designing a quilt, creating a tiled representation of the photograph, or creating a stylized version of the photograph. To do this, tap the Limit so that it becomes GREEN - a slider will appear. You can use this slider, or a pinch gesture on the mosaic image to change the number of colors displayed in the mosaic.
