Ian has sent us this link to The telegraph Travel website with a Gigapixel image of Machu Picchu: the highest resolution image ever taken.
With a resolution 15.9 of gigapixels, the picture is thought to be the highest definition photo of Machu Picchu ever taken.
Ian adds “Better than the portraits anyway” – referring to his view of the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize images (click on ‘Comment” to read his views at the end of the Taylor Wessing item below).
Gigapixel imaging is getting more popular. Read this interesting account of how this image was made.
A quick Google reveals the size of some of these images. This panaorama of Shanghai is 272Giga pixels. So don’t try to do this on one of the club’s laptops – otherwise we won’t see you for a season or two!
Thanks to Ian for sending the Machu Picchu link
