However, one thing iPhoto can't do is tile images which is where PhotoTiles comes in. PhotoTiles is an application you use to create a tiled image of images or movie frames in various dimensions and sizes. On setup, you're prompted whether you want to drag photos into the PhotoTiles window to compile them into a tile formation or you can set your preferences first.
After the program is configured by specifying a few options, simply drag a folder of images or movies onto the application, or its main window. The problems start herein, however. PhotoTiles appears to process your images before suddenly asking you to save your tiled images. Once saved, nothing happens and when you double click on your saved creation, all you get is a tiny thumbnail of each of your images tiles. Changing the size of the preferences doesn't seem to solve this either. There's doesn't seem to be any clear solution to this and as a result, the end product is as good as worthless.
PhotoTiles could add a touch of elegance to your photos but it's not clear how it's supposed to work and the results you'll achieve are likely to be so small that it's not worth it.
