    A project I would like to do. Need help in how to get started.

    Ok, this is the idea:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOh7fcrVMSE

    I maybe don't want to use 15000 pins, but the idea is there.

    I have a picture and have reduced the size down to "SMALL!" size but it still has too many colours.

    I tried to reduce the colour depth to 4 colours but that made a mess of the picture with the dithering and that stuff.

    I have seen it done with LEGO as well at a show I went to recently.

    Anyone every done it and could help me work out how to get it working?

    Do you have photoshop?

    Try filters > filter gallery ...I combined Fresco and Patchwork to mess around with this image. Not great but 5 mins of mess around. Is that the sort of thing you meant? It might get you on the right track.

    Mr Felix. Call me blunt, but what's the point of all of it?
    I read your post, but what is the point you are trying to make? It is apparently not with pins.
    Yes, you mentioned [colour depth] but... with what aim?
    And, if you do not have a working version of Photoshop, do you have anything like it?

    So, I am saying that it would help if you could clearly state your aim and intention instead of referring obliquely to a
    (IMO) vague video that shows a person with too much time to waste and hoping someone can divine what you may mean
    by looking at that video. (I am still kicking myself for wasting the time.)

    Am(willing to help if I can).
    CC, Image editing OK.
