Apply the Mosaic Effect to an Image in GIMP
Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to apply a "Mosaic" effect to an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
Then, move the cursor to "Distorts".
From the menu, click "Mosaic...". A dialogue box will appear with a preview of how your image will look.
You can click and drag the preview or click the arrows to move your preview. This will allow you to see how the effect will change different parts of the image.
If you cannot see the preview, ensure that the "Preview" box is checked in the dialogue box.
Next, click the "Tiling primitives" drop-down menu. You can choose what shape you want your mosaic to be: squares, hexagons, octagons, or triangles. This is pretty self-explanatory.
After that, adjust "Tile Size". You can do it either by clicking and dragging the scrollbar or by typing the size you want on the right-hand side.
You can also adjust "Tile height" in the same way. This parameter adds depth to the image.
You can adjust "Tile spacing". You may risk losing some of the detail.
After that, you can adjust "Tile neatness", "Light Direction", and "Color variation" in the same way as well.
Once you're satisfied with your changes, click "OK" to apply the effect to the image. The green line at the bottom shows that image is being processed.
