+$In this tutorial we'll be dealing with images in which a sequence of tiny thumbnails appear to form a larger image. They've been around for a while now and have perhaps become a little hackneyed, but it's still possible to use the technique as part of a more developed picture.
+$The difficulty with this type of image is that the creation of the thumbnails requires either specialised software or a lot of tedious messing about inPhotoshop中+$. This means that experimenting to get just the right effect can be tricky and takes time.
+$Here, I've almost automated the process by using a video-editing package (in this case+$Premiere Elements+$) to quickly produce 400 thumbnails, and then usedPhotoshop中+$'s Contact Sheet tool to arrange them into a single image. The advantage of this method is that whereas most similar images are created from a small number of original thumbnails, which get repeated, every still frame in our shot will be different.
+$In addition, because the thumbnails are created from a series of video frames, it's also possible to add a narrative theme to the image, with the shots telling a coherent story. So let's get started.
