Helaine and I were walking on Las Vegas Boulevard when I asked her to wait “a sec” while I took a few shots. We were in front of the Mirage Hotel. Before the sec was up I’d taken 37 photos each overlapping the previous one.
I ran the shots through Microsoft’s free Image Composite Editor to create a panorama and output the file in their Deep Zoom format. Here’s the result¹!
The deeper you zoom, the more detail you see.
Because of the technology behind this there is very little delay and zooming into this immense image is smooth as can be.
I don’t often ask for them, but your comments on this ‘trick’ are encouraged.
¹ – Microsoft Silverlight (which you might already have installed) is required.
