For newbies: click and drag to move, zoom with mouse wheel.
These are 256 pictures of my favorite cars. I "tuned" some of them with photoshop. My favorite is the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti "Bird's Head" (because it looks like a black bird's head with beak open, seen from the side), to which I gave larger rims and this painting. Click the black and white snapshot above to enlarge it.

Click also the two snapshots of "stupid drivers" pretending to drive when there obviously still, who look really dumb sitting in their car in the middle of the road. (see snapshots of brown Bentley and Veyron)

(I forgot Alex Roy's 144A, sorry Alex)

Other totally unrelated gigapans of some ray-tracing works...

If you want to make this kind of huge picture, here is how to do it (there may be other ways):
- Download ImageMagick at www.imagemagick.org Will open in a new tab or window (it's free).
- In command line mode (DOS) goto the ImageMagick folder, and enter this line (for 4 images):
montage pic1.jpg pic2.jpg pic3.jpg pic4.jpg -tile 2x2 -geometry "1024x768+0+0" -mode concatenate wallpaper.jpg

"montage" is the name of the program.
"pic1.jpg pic2.jpg pic3.jpg pic4.jpg" is the list of the input pictures (they can be in another folder).
"2x2" defines how the pictures must be tiled.

"1024x768" is supposed to define the max size to which the pictures must be reduced, but it didn't work for me...
"+0+0" defines the blank interval (in width and height) between the pictures.
"wallpaper.jpg" is the name of the output file.

Caution: if you are using a lot of pictures you will have to bring them if the ImageMagick folder, and give them short names, because otherwise the line will be too long. Also check your memory: this 16x16 example took 1.6 gigabytes of RAM.

For best result resize all pictures to the same size.

To upload the file, open an account at gigapan.org, then see in the homepage "download the uploader". The file is a .msi, if it doesn't work by clicking it, go in command line (DOS), and enter:
msiexec /i thefileyoudownloaded.msi
