Photomosaic arranges many small photographs to represent a large image. The study applies the photomosaic to a photograph browser CAT. The implementation displays photomosaic while zooming out, and individual photographs while zooming in. Here, many photograph browsing software displays a set of photographs in the order of their timestamps. To maintain this order of photographs, the photomosaic-like image generation technique rstly arranges the given set of photographs in the order of their timestamps, and then retouches so that the set of photographs forms a photomosaic-like scene. This paper presents the technique for photomosaic generation, a user evaluation to discuss what kinds of photographs are preferable to be applied, and an automatic photomosaic selection technique.
