What to do with all those pictures

We found something cool to do with at least a few hundred of your digital photos: commission Mosaic Pix to create a portrait of your kid. LA-based artist (and former visual effects producer) Leslie Oliver works with clients to select a portrait image, then walks them through the picture selection process to help create the best possible outcome; she prefers to work with at least two hundred pictures. Images must be in jpeg or tiff format and must be at least 640 x 480 pixels or at least 100 dpi (most digital camera images meet this requirement). Photos can be delivered to her on CD, DVD, thumbdrive, or, coming soon, uploaded directly to the Mosaic Pix website. Pricing starts at $250 for an 11” x 14” print; turnaround time is about three weeks.
