Started in 2012, Photobrix is the creative & technical spawn of award winning creative lead Nick Hearne and technical architect Jaymz Campbell. From the simple idea of simplifying creating pixel art portraits from Lego bricks came months of design & development over many iterations. New jobs, new children, new houses and an uncountable amount of ale and pizza and we're just about ready to launch proper.
Join us on our journey to simplify the world of artistic Lego building from your own photos. Now we're public we have a lot of plans to extend our algorithims to make your outputs and instructions even better. We're not just going to be limited to Lego colors - our layout and color picking software is suitable for mosaics of any size or shape and you'll be able to preload your colours and sizes for us to place.
Also coming soon are high quality exports suitable for prints and third party products like mugs, tshirts and cushions. Sign up for news of updates and offers. Here's a few images from our development over the months (and years!). We've played with a lot of variations including different mode spaces, quantization methods, filtering and all sorts. It's certainly been interesting and colourful!
