WTC Image Montage

    I was given an image to add to my collection (now approaching 1,200 images) from a person who shall remain anonymous of an aerial view over the decemated WTC location.

    What’s unique about this image is that it is a 9372×9372 jpeg image at 1016dpi at 1:12 ratio. I can literally zoom in and see the color of the pants that the construction workers are wearing, clearly. The file itself is 16 megs. It’s painful to zoom with gimp on this PIII/850 w/256 megs of ram (the gimp swapfile is over 1GB on disk).

    I should stop panning around and zooming in, I might see something I don’t want to see. Even the 300×300
    thumbnail
    I created of it is 87k. The original file is 31 times larger than this thumbnail.
