Maybe turning your photos into giant sized Lego murals was just too much time, money, following detailed instructions, etc…Don’t worry, you can still turn your photos into murals–and this time all you have to do is click a button. Head over to Eric Andrew Lewis’ ‘Emoji Mosaic’, upload your photo, wait a couple seconds, then boom! The web app spits out an emoji-fied mosaic of your photo.
Like the Legoizer, some photos work better than others. Oddly, I found the more details there are in a photo, the better the Emoji Mosaic looked. Some of the more minimalist images just turned out looking like big blobs of solid colors. The results also look way more recognizable (in comparison to their original) once they are zoomed out of a bit. But, I’d be interested in see what everyone else’s experiments result in–feel free to share your trials in the comments section.
Sure, outside of providing an effective way to waste large chunks of time in one sitting, there may not be much practical use for Emoji Mosaic, but at least it’s really good for burning time at the office when all you really want to do leave.
