2. Use your own tiles.
This chapter shows you how to import new tiles.
Get tile samples. Take photos, prepare photos, create new tile lib with tile photos.
First step is collect mosaic samples.
In most case you can get a sample board from the tile factory or tile dealer.
The sample board looks like this. there are tiles mounted on a paper board.
Take photo for each tile. I strongly suggest you use a camera with manual mode,
Using fixed Iris and Shutter, turn off auto white balance, and you may need to use additional lights.
Load photos into computer, and you need to rename them.
The file name should describe the tiles.
After that, finish tile edit and start new mosaic project.
The render engine will start and use your new tiles to create the mosaic.
