Easily Create a Photo Collage with Friend Brush

We’ve all seen those interesting photo collages that combine a collection of tiny images into one large image that looks nothing like its constituents. How would you like to create one on your mobile device? Thanks to XDA Forum Member hessan, you can now do all of this while on the go.

Friend Brush allows you to create photo mosaics that look like a regular image when zoomed out. But when you zoom in, you will see a large grid of constituent photos that make up the main image. When creating a collage, you are given the option to select from a variety of “brushes.” These aren’t brushes in a traditional sense, though. Rather, they are collections of source images for the mosaic. Thanks to the user-friendly interface and how source images are so easy to select, you will be up and running with a photo collage in no time.

Head over to the application thread to learn more and give this app a try. Please note that the version of the application that is currently available on Google Play does not allow users to save their mosaics. However, the version provided for direct download in the thread, as well as the version available through the Google+ Beta community linked in the OP both allow for image saving. This feature will make its way out to the Google Play version in its next update.

[Many thanks to Recognized Contributor benkxda and hessan himself for the heads up!]

Microsoft is preparing a monumental release with Windows 10, and it could easily be one of the biggest developments in operating system history.
