remember in mario paint how you could make stamps using pixels?
well i'm trying to make a tile pattern outta pixelated photos of paintings.
i tried resolution changes but then the image size obviously gets too small to work with.
sorry if i'm not clear enough on what my goal is.
thanks in advance.

Not sure exactly what you're looking for because I've never used mario paint. I got a blocky/pixelated image pretty easily like this.

1) image->adjustments->posterize (slider: 10)
2) filter->texture->patchwork (sliders: adjust to taste, I used 9, and 8)
optional step:
3) image->adjustments->brightness contrast (sliders: adjust to taste I used -50, 20)
