On Wednesday, NASA unveiled a rather large postcard sent back from Mars by the Curiosity rover. It’s in the form a panoramic image packing more than one billion pixels that was stitched together from 896 images. NASA sees the gigapixel image as a way for “armchair explorers” to take a close-up look at the Red Planet by means of an interactive webpage.  Read More

NASA has captured the world's largest panoramic photo showing a swath of land 6,000 miles long and 120 miles wide using a satellite orbiting 438 miles (705 km) above the Earth. At 19.06 gigapixels, "The Long Swath” is far from the highest resolution panorama on record, falling well short of the 320 gigapixel panorama of London, but it is without question the longest, covering an area from northern Russia to South Africa.  Read More

The four gigapixel panorama creates a Street View-like experience on the surface of Mars

Most of us will probably never make it to Mars, but the Curiosity Rover is there trying to give us the next best thing – tons of pictures.

Last month, we saw a panorama of Dubai taken from atop the world's tallest building. It was gorgeous, but at 2.5 gigapixels in size, not exactly the largest panorama. No, that title now belongs to a recent 360-degree panoramic photo of London that consists of over 48,000 individual shots and boats an incredible 320 gigapixels resolution.  Read More

But now anyone can enjoy the building's stunning views from the comfort of their own home thanks to a photographer who recently composed a stunning 360-degree panorama image taken from on top of the Burj Khalifa.  Read More

ThrowMeApp makes your smartphone capable of producing great photos taken from an aerial pe...

If you've ever felt the need to take a photograph of yourself and your friends from an elevated position then you may have tried the "throw your camera in the air while it snaps away at you from above" method. Now there's an app titled ThrowMeApp that's designed to make this approach a little more hit and a bit less miss. Unfortunately the app can't overcome the biggest risk of employing this method: if you fail to catch your smartphone before gravity sneaks it past your outreached hand, it could wind up being a pretty expensive photo.  Read More
