[prMac.com] Doral, Florida - The Photobricks Team today announced that Photobricks, their first mosaic creation software specialized for use with LEGO bricks, is now available for Mac OS X. Photobricks is a simple but powerful piece of software that allows the user to turn any image on their device into a mosaic composed of LEGO bricks.
In Photobricks, the user can create a LEGO mosaic from any image stored on their device or by directly taking a picture with their device's built-in camera. For power users, Photobricks comes equipped with a variety of features that make it possible to fine-tune the appearance of any mosaic. The user can alter their mosaics by cropping the original image and changing the colors of individual bricks. They can then view what types of bricks they will need to build their mosaic and, when they are finished, they can share it in a variety of ways including high resolution printing.
"I'm very proud of what our team has accomplished with Photobricks in the Mac platform," said Andres Gonzalez, founder of the Photobricks Team. "In essence, we have taken the LEGO mosaic creation process--a time-consuming exercise traditionally reserved for skillful artists--into an incredibly fun experience that any user will be able to enjoy," said Gonzalez.
Photobricks, originally released last week for iOS, is now available as a free download world-wide in English, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish exclusively through Apple's Mac App Store.
