    Here's another mosaic image, this time using the Egyptians (rounds) and Pharaohs.

    (click on the image below to see a 2048x913 version)

    2048 x 913 -- 1 MB

    This image uses 7259 chips. Each chip is 60x60 pixels (in the full resolution version). That's A1 size at 300DPI.

    If you want the full-resolution, poster-sized version of this (8211 x 3660 pixels), you can download it here:

    Be forwarned --- that download is 34.7 MB !!

    I tried the AB thing.... it didn't work out. The problem is that without being able to render the fleshtones well, the mosaic beauty looks pretty bad. So I kept increasing the number of chips... until the mosaic had 10's of thousands of chips, was >100MB, and it still looked bad :sorry:

    Mosaic Creator (Pro Version).
    Then I created a custom pattern shape for the pokerchips.
    It's a pretty good program. I tried out a couple of others before settling on this one.

    I wonder how much it would cost to get a larger-than-poster sized print of this framed?
