Convert Any Picture to Emoji Mosaic Art with This Fun Tool
Everyone loves Emoji, right? The playful little icons that can typed on the Mac or iPhone add all sorts of fun and variety to conversation, but why stop at communication? Why not make some incredibly complex mosaic Emoji artwork out of any image or picture you have? It’s easy!
Thanks to a neat little web app created by Eric Andrew Lewis, a web developer for The New York Times, all you need to do is visit a webapp, provide it an image, and you’ll quickly have an elaborate mosaic built of that picture using thousands (if not millions) of Emoji icons. The effect is quite good, try it yourself, or scroll below to see a handful of example Emoji mosaics. It’s super easy to use and pretty fun, try it out yourself.
- Go to the Emoji Mosaic creator page here

- Enjoy your amazing new Emoji art on screen, or right-click on the image to save it
