A Gigapixel image is a digital image bitmap composed of billions of pixels. For example, a one billion pixel image would replicate 31,623 pixel height x 31,623 pixel width. To put this into context, a professional grade Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera would only create 6720 × 4480 pixels – not even close to the resolution of a Gigapixel image. Using a combination of professional camera equipment and specialised hardware and software, we have created Gigapixel images through a complicated mosaic process resulting in images of exceptional resolution that can be printed into very large sizes. In fact, a single image can cover an entire wall without any loss in image quality.
The scale of the images will also give freedom to crop a specific part of an image – ideal for selecting areas of an image to print – chosen by the user. The combination of the technology used to create large format images of exceptional quality together with the photographer’s artistic vision are what makes GigaPixArt images so compelling.
