The World’s Largest Photo Would Cover an Entire Soccer Field
This photo of the Alps is now officially the world’s largest photo—beating out a 320-gigapixel aerial shot of London from 2013. The mountain-bound crew of photographers, led by Filippo Blengigi, surpassed the previous shot with their 365-gigapixel shot of Europe’s Mont Blanc.
Just how big is it? According to photo-focused website PetaPixel, a full print of the image would cover a soccer field. The team spent 15 days shooting, resulting in more than 70,000 images (or 46 terabytes of data, for the tech-inclined). After two months of postproduction, the team debuted the new record holder.
