We describe a process for creating an image mosaic -- a collection of
small images arranged in such a way that when they are seen together
from a distance they suggest a larger image. To visually suggest the
larger form, the small images are arranged to match a large picture as
much as possible, and then their colors are adjusted to better suggest
the overall form. Arrangement of the small images may be either manual
or automatic. Adjustment of the colors in the small image to further
suggest the larger picture is fully automatic and employs a new color
correction scheme that generalizes traditional halftoning.
