    An image mosaic may be defined as “a collection of small images arranged in such a way that when they are seen together from a distance they suggest a larger image” [Finkelstein and Range 1998]. Image mosaics are used in art and advertising for the pictoral juxtaposition of ideas. In this paper, we introduce a method for the automatic creation of mosaics from viewports in a larger image. The technique is then extended to allow the use of video, while retaining temporal. coherence by calculating optimal paths through the larger image.
