Selecting the Perfect Image for RubixCubeArt
Colors in your photos are mapped to either White, Yellow, Orange, Red, or Blue. Green looks best only when it is representing actual green in the photo or logo.
For a face, if the background is white, then teeth and eyes might have some white, while yellow and orange and some red will be used for skin tones. If the background and clothing is darker, then a face will often become mostly white with yellow and orange being used for the facial details.
Photos with Black, Purple, or Brown do not represent well unless you are willing to have Blue map to these darker colors. In some cases, Black will become Blue and Brown might be represented by Red.
In head shots, it is important to avoid clothing that matches the subject’s face or background color. The head will appear to be shaped oddly, or float in the center of the image.
Logos and Clip Art
These can make some really great cube mosaics even at low resolution. Logos with text and more than 5 colors, or logos that depend on Black, Brown, and Purple will not be represented as well.
Flags that are mostly geometric will also represent well at all sizes
Logos with small print will need larger number of pixels for a good outcome.
