A texture generator for wall and floor mosaics, most beautifully assembled out of broken glazed tile fragments. Breathe life into your architectural spaces with timeless mosaic tile designs and artworks! Various mosaic styles are at your disposal, tiles can be elongated, shattered or even go missing entirely.Tips:- You can color your tiles with a source image by using the 'Use Source Color' option.- Avoid colors of low brightness for the grout as these tend to look unrealistic.- The various 'Seed' sliders control the local variation of certain aspects of the filter. Use these to fine-tune without affecting the global 'Variation'.This filter is inspired by Mike Blackney's excellent 'Classic Floor Tile'. Thanks for that one, Mike!
