World’s Largest Photo is 45-Gigapixel Panorama

Dubai boasts some of the biggest buildings in the world, and some of the most fun (see the indoor ski resort). Now, however, a panorama of Dubai has just been named the World’s Largest Photo. Coming in at 45 Gigapixels, this panoramic shot by Gerald Donovan almost doubles the previous record holder at 26 Gigapixels.

Donovan used a Gigapan EPIC Pro and a Canon 7D to create this image. The whole process took over 3 and a half hours and over 4,200 images which PetaPixel notes, would take up about 1,200 billboards if it were printed.
