Graphic Design Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional graphic designers and non-designers trying to do their own graphic design. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to chop up an image into blocks of lets say 10x10px (the size is arbitrary). The blocks can only have one color and therefore it is allowed that the image will be slightly changed (its the intention that the blocks are visible).

How is this process called? Is there software or a web service that automates this?

Do you mean like this graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/9391/… but not necessarily 1px each? If so, the exact same method works, just adjust the numbers. Or do you mean something like this - chopping an image into tiles? –  user568458 Mar 25 '13 at 11:16
    
Its like the first one. Because every tile can only contain one color. –  Jarco Mar 25 '13 at 11:28
