Hi
I am searching for a filter, a plug-in or a c'mic-app which produces more realistic tiles, not all same size. The tiles can also be rounded and be colour based on the original.
Here is a link to an exemple.
However, I would like to use it for modern objects, giving them a completely different look.

Has anybody an idea?

Hi Arran, I did it going to filters - distorts - mosaic. First I selected the bird and run the filter, then Selection - Invert and run the filter. :)

Is that what you want?

Hi Bella
i should have told, that I saw this filter too, but the result is in my opinion much too artificial. The old Romans have more and irregular spaces between the tiles and follow a curve quite close.

But anyway, many thanks for your endeavour.

Arran, Use Gimp Mosaic filter on selections with varying options, rather than a whole image for different effects. The Mosaic tool in Gimp is very good with it's choice of options, you could say it's versa[tile]. ;)

Here's a quick example running mosaic on a selection of a flower, inverting selection and running mosaic with different options on the surrounding area.

I like your outcome, Issabella!
I understand what Arran says about ancient Roman mosaics, nevetheless this looks very nice to me.

the outcome of Issabella (and afterwards, of Odinbc) stimulated myself in experimenting on this gimp filter, not totally new for me but always left over until now...
thus, here is my tentative outcome...

Dinasset, I like your attempt a lot because you have got more space among the little tiles, so the outcome is more real. :hi5

The challenge is how to get the tiles setting following the main subject. :)
