In a conversation I lost track, I asked help for a simple project. Before I was able to implement a solution (given by Michel, thank you), I realized that all my code design was wrong:
All I wanted to have was a mosaic built from a serie of small image files. I recall that I’ve done that in 2002 ! But I do not have the code handly.
So, when I realized that,
Heres a (fake) example of what I wanted to do, using some xDev Magazine front covers:
I do not had (handly) all the needed files to fill the screen, so I duplicated some and this is the result.
The project is sharps here and there and I get ideas to make it working differently (thanks to the xDev covers) if less images are dropped at the same time, and have larger size (I was working for a 52 or 52 + 2 or + 3 issues a year / one image / year).
BTW: I do not told you how many different background images I used before the one you see above.
And the background for the image above was replaced directly inside the already created Stand-Alone application and I liked it.
I still have work on my plate, so I stop here.
Nota: I have no particular finencial interest in the xDev Magazine excepted that a bit of advertisement for it was fun to do ;-:).
The current application was built for OS X, but I will make a Windows (8.1) version later.
