5x5 water drops montage 1/4 size
, on Flickr
How many full frame high-speed flash images can I put together in a montage of high-speed water drop collisions? Above is a 5 x 5 montage which ended up giving me a TIFF file of 2.94 Gigs and an image of 28,000 x 18,670 pixels. That would give me an 80 x 53 inch poster at 350 dots per inch! Photoshop could handle the massive file - BUT - a simple edge crop took over 5-minutes to complete. So although the software and hardware could handle the massive dataset, my (lack of) patience couldn't, and this is about the limits for me and my current computer system.
