Turn Your Favorite Photo into a LEGO Masterpiece

by John Thomas

Let’s say you have a photo and you want to turn it into a LEGO mosaic. Figuring out freehand what pieces to buy, how many and in exactly the places to put them would basically be impossible. Well, the new Legoizer does that work for you, allowing you to take a special image and turn it into an extra special work of art.

The best part – it’s crazy simple. It literally takes about three seconds. You take any photo, drag it from your desktop into the image slot, and presto, a rendering of the image in LEGO materialized along with an exact shopping list of the kind, color and number of specific pieces you would need to build it.

On a tab next to the shopping list is one for instructions. When you click on it it tells you may many lines are in your creation and asks you which line you want the specifics on. If you simply start with line 1 and hit enter, it shows you just how to arrange the pieces. It may be one of the easiest and most helpful interfaces I have ever seen for DIY art projects.

Even if you have no interest in ever building a photo you love out of LEGO pieces, you should still check it out and give it a test run to see one of the simplest and most elegant online tools of its kind.
