You know that the reason people don't just use google is because they're also looking for some social interaction right? You really need to quit being such an asocial twit. This is why some people post here once then never come back because you troglodytes chase em away. For f*** sake. I hate people.

Until you google the topic and this is the top result. Then it's not so funny.

You've been here long enough to know Google indexes this place's topics so quick you can frequently circular search an obscure topic and it'll end up back here.
I will rule the world, and find that truly good cup of coffee.

Closest thing I could find was something called http://grid-paint.com/

It doesn't convert for you but it does set up the hex grid for you. You could probably blow up a picture so that each pixel would be about the size of one hex and then painstakingly convert it, but that's a lot of work.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/39421233/convert-image-pixels-from-square-to-hexagonal

There's also this... but that seems to be a guy looking for something similar. They give him some answers but don't point to an easy resource.

Also I found this on reddit:
You could place such a grid over your image and use each hexagon to select an area of the image then use Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur to fill the hexagon with the average colour in the area. Repeat.
so maybe that might help some... Still involves work though

http://damienclarke.me/code/mosaic-maker Ok, this might work for you... but it's kinda rough...Maybe if you blow up the picture big enough this will allow you to do what you're trying to do... .


Thanks, I'll take a look at this after work.

Quit arguing over irrelevant s***. You want to help TC answer his question then try to answer it. If you want to be a dick and or argue with people being a dick, just get the f*** out and save everyone the time of having to skip over that stupid s***.

I did my best, and nobody else in this whole thread even tried. Good job Gamefaqs.

I actually fully expected to pretty quickly find a Photoshop plugin that would do exactly that, and was surprised one didn't pop up for me. Lots of hex grid overlays and stuff for a variety of programs, but actually converting photos to hexels by averaging color inside each hex, as easy as that sounds to program, seems hard to find.

Curious if the one arleas found worked?

The last one that was linked, probably, but I'm not going to start working on the machine or anything until this weekend. It's a big project and it probably won't even work out that well. The marble pieces I'll be using as "pixels" are round but the spaces are hexes so there's a lot of background visible between marbles. I can make the entire background black and that might help some but still not sure what image to do first as a test. That's the most important decision in the whole thing.
