Grand Canyon Pano -
I'm not sure how well this will work on my blog page but I thought I would post it and find out. The cause for my uncertainty is the size of the panorama. The original image was created from 9 separate images that were stitched together in Photoshop CS3 using the Photomerge application. If you have not had an opportunity to use this fantastically improved utility in CS3, I highly recommend it. I won't get in to specifics of how to use the feature since there are many tutorials available on the web. I can say that it is hugely improved and about as simple as saying "Here's my pictures, put them together and let me know when you are done." So back to my concern which is that actual size of the pano. The original is 467 MB and over 36,000 pixels in length. That equates to a printed image that would be about 8 feet long. Obviously I can't put an image of that size on the blog page so I shrank it down to a more manageable size. I just can't be sure what Blogger will do with it. As usual, you can click on the image to see a larger version (hopefully it will look good since you can't actually see anything on the smaller version below). Let me know how it works out in your browser of choice.

You will probably need to click on the image to make it full size as most browsers tend to auto-shrink images to fit the screen

Fantastic pano of the Grand Canyon

FYI it works really well in IE6 on a Windows 2000 Pro computer
Both the 'enlarged view & the 'side scanning' view

The canyon's stratification almost looks like clogged jets on a printer (smile)
