    Thought people might find this interesting.

    see the speck of red in the middle? It's a van, and the license is
    64 VN ZR. Now that's impressive.

    Oh, BTW, the following link is for a page with more info on the photo

    Final image size = 7.5 gigabytes. Not sure you'd get many of them on a Flash card!

    It's a mix of 600 seperate images, hence the rather bizarre car/bus thingy on the road. Have a peek at the technical details on the 2nd link. There's also a bodyless head

    I was playing with some 20 photos I took around London
    and Edinburg in stiching them together with Photoshop.

    Took about 20 in each place - panoramic style, don't think
    I could be bothered with more than that? lol

    I could probably get 4 photos per card then?? not worth it.

    Saying that though, the way digital photography and
    computing have come in the past few years, you never know
    mate do ya? Couple of years time - maybe.

    I remember when this was posted on slashdot a while ago, i was bloody amazed, aparantly they used like 5 computers 3 days to run all the processing required for the arrangement
    its amazing what we can do with technology these days :)
    its fun to play spot the dodgy bloke in the window too :)

    thanks for pointing it out Gaz :)
