You are standing on top of a tall building, or a mountain, or a cruise ship. The view is amazing. You want a picture that captures the enormous, the grandiose.
A selfie won’t do. The picture needs to be really big. Much bigger than any camera can capture.
So you need to take a bunch of pictures and stitch them together.
Cozumel, For Example
The Cozumel picture above is 52,226 x 5,148 pixels – a total of 268,859,448 pixels.
Technical limitations restrict the images you view on this website to about 15,000 pixels in width: less than one third of the resolution of the full-sized image.
In addition to notes on each photo, there is a page of techniques: things I have learned while creating panoramas.
If the site interests you, or you can improve it, tell me.
