Tamogen Mosaic action which takes a folder of images as its input

Registered by Stani on 2009-06-06

Issues are:
- How big is the final image (mostly it has to be much bigger)
- How big are the individual photos (mostly smaller) and how they look like (white board, shadow, ...)
- Maybe nice to add some randomness to the grid: rotation and shift from origin
- Compare with existing collage software (eg picasa, ...)
- Method: reduce every small image to an average color value (fast) or use diff function to also take shapes in account (slow).

The choice of the right photo should be done after the random transformations.

Todo: this still requires a FolderField, use a CharField for now.

Here are a couple of interesting ones (both GPL):

Tamogen handles one image case too (mosaic image itself using it as the base image). Would it be alright to just include these tools with Phatch and build a simple UI (like in "Lossless JPEG" action) for them?

That is fine. Of course as they use PIL they should not be external processes.

For the other mosaics we should file a new blueprint as this one is connected to the 0.2 release.
