John made his own LEGO “Brick-o-lizer”, he writes – “When my oldest son was born in 2001 LEGO offered a cool online “Brick-o-lizer” that would take an uploaded photo and turn it into a five-tone grayscale grid of 1Ã—1 bricks from which you could create a wall-hanging mosaic. LEGO would send you the exact right amount of bricks in bulk. Putting it together was as easy as paint-by-numbers…My daughter was born a few weeks ago and so naturally I went back to the Brick-o-lizer to create her mosaic. Imagine my horror to find out that it isn’t available anymore. How could I deprive my baby girl of her LEGO mosaic? Well. Obviously. I couldn’t.” [via] – Link.

It’s got some cool options, such as choosing to use plates or bricks, with the studs up or studs out, choosing the color palette, etc.
There’s also an “Instructables” on Lego Mosaics here:
