Geograph is Four!

Geograph’s fourth birthday kind of crept up on me today, I find it hard to believe it’s been going for four years. With almost 1.2 million images in the archive, it continues to go from strength to strength. Well done to all who contribute, in whatever way!

I quickly knocked up a birthday mosaic to celebrate…

Geograph Four Years Old - click for huge mosaic

This mosaic is derived from Sydling Synchronised Swanning by Nigel Mykura. Tiles drawn from other images submitted to Geograph – many thanks to the thousands of photographers who made that possible.

Naturally, the above image is available for re-use under a Creative Commons 2.0 by-sa licence!

The mosaic was created with Metapixel.

Suggest a better one!

This one was done rather quickly – if you’d like have a go, just make up a base image, it need not be large, 640×480 or 800×600 is sufficient. Use a base image you own or one which has Creative Commons by-sa licence. I’d recommend trying to find one with a good use of green and blue tones, but more colours would be good! Send it to me and I’ll create a mosaic using Geograph images!
