Fun with photography… creating a 120 megapixel image

August 12, 2013

Last Saturday we visited Ullapool and Gairloch on a family road trip.

I didn’t plan to take any photo’s but found myself taking a series of portrait photos with the idea of creating another panorama using Hugin…

10 x 18 mega-pixel (RAW) images where used to create a panorama of the beach at Gairloch…

As Hugin processed the image it claimed to be processing 18635×6345 pixels.. generating a roughly120 mega pixel image…. BUT

the final dimensions 17934×3429 pixels… 61 mega pixels..  losing 50% due to alignment & projection losses above and below the composite image (next time use a tripod).

This is a 15% thumbnail image of the output – (the original is a 156Mb TIFF image).
