In this Album Cover Mosaic the input image is divided into tiles and each tile is replaced by an album cover that best matches the color pattern of the input image.

200 x 200
album cover thumbnails

album covers in pool
I’m not sure yet what to do with it. For printing the individual album covers might be too small, I have to experiment with the numbers.
All albums in the mosaic are from my local library. For this I created an extension that uses the Roon API to generate a thumbnail of each album. This pool of thumbnails is then used by a Python library that creates the mosaic, this library is called photomosaic.
A small warning; creating a mosaic of this size is memory hungry. On my Windows 10 PC with 16 GB of RAM I can go up to 200 megapixels before it runs out of memory.
If there is an interest I can share more details in follow-up posts and provide some software.

I just took a look in my “archives”. I Think i used a program called AndreaMosaic, but i cannot remember how i wasable to create Square tiles though. Otherwise it works just fine and i did one based on Beastie Boys - Licensed to Ill.
