Abstract

This paper presents Tile Mosaic Art (TMA), an e-commerce Web application system for making mosaic art images from regular pictures. TMA makes it possible for ordinary users to produce high-quality mosaic art images with tiles without special training. We describe how TMA resolves color bandings caused by current technologies of tile industries, where only a limited color palette for tiles is available. In particular, TMA uses the FWD-FSD error diffusion algorithm (Lin and Wang, 2011) to maintain the original structure of the input image and produce high-quality mosaic images. TMA also develops Ajax, Web Service, and XQuery technologies to save and modify mosaic images and obtain the effect of what-you-see-is-what-you-get mosaic picture. Our experiments show that TMA not only produces high-quality mosaic images but also is efficient in terms of response and request time.
