High Res Photography

During the recent family trip to Mount Arapilies, Victoria, I took plenty of photos and I'll probably be putting more up on here later.

One of the more interesting things that I had a go at was creating a really, really high res image. The one below consists of over 200 photos and when joined results in a photo around 400 Megapixels.

The main problem after you have waited for your photos to be stitched is how to edit them. Standard image viewers refuse to open them, photoshop crashes. Eventually I found a viewer that splits the images up into thousands of tiles that makes it easy and fast to view. I am still looking for a way to edit the finished image though.

I was very annoyed when I got home to find that when taking the pictures I had missed a narrow strip across the image. I plan on having a another go of taking more photos like this closer to home and I have ideas for a simple robot to automate the taking of them.
