Royal Family Snapped In Eye-Bleedingly-Detailed Five Billion Pixel Image

By Sam Gibbs on at

The Jubilee bank holiday celebrations might be over, but The Queen's still out rocking around the country, riding the flag-waving fever. She stopped off in Nottingham yesterday where the scene was captured in a five billion pixel image, for eye-bleeding detail and incredible zooming powers.

The image was created from 220 separate photos to create the behemoth you see below. It's amazing how much detail is preserved -- you can literally do a bit of classic TV magic and "enhance that", zooming into the background to spot the chap having a cheeky peek from the building behind all the crowds. There's bound to be a choice shot of someone picking their nose in there, I just haven't found it yet.

Look at the new girl Kate -- staring down the barrel of the lens like a right pro. [Daily Mail]
