226042x21693px image will make you surprised of the details and the hiden places that could be seen. This is I thing the widest view of the town Kocani where the alomost 70% of the town is visible.

THIS IS THE HAND MADE PANORAMA WITHOUT USING THE ROBOT. Before last step corrections the pano was between 6-7Gpx, but in order to get the nice composition and quality it was cropped in Photoshop to 5Gpx. At the begining I almost reached the Photoshop limit of 300.000 px. Amazing experiance and result if you exclude the little visible mistakes.

Green nature that sarrouns the town, "Brana Gragce" could be seen on folowing link:
small pano from OHRID - The Balcan Jerusalem could be seen here

    Zoran, Great photo. So many little adventures....Unbelievable detail. I have wandered the streets and feel like I am beginning to know the place. Thanks for all of the time and effort you must have expended!

    I just started to look at such gigapixelpix (or how do one name them?) in general, didn't know about it before: Although it's "only" 4.90 Gp, the details of your panorama is amazing!!! Hope I make it to FYROM, I like the name Macedonia better, of course :-)))

    Thank you for the nice impressions about my pano, but I have to correct you that the balcony you have reached is exactly the one of my house. The mother on it is actually one of my two dаughters with my brothers two children.

    This was the best fun I've had in ages and quite unexpected. Browsing this image starts to conjur up visions of family sagas and age old traditions. I came across the young mother smiling at her son on a distant balcony and it made my day!!! Truly well done!!!

    This a great job you achieved, I am impressed. Respect. Concerning the raw format : when saving the file, was did you choose interleaved or not ? is there a specific name format for the uploader software ?

    The file was uploaded as Photoshop RAW.

    Bonjour Zoran, félicitations pour votre panorama. which is the format of your file? tiff, raw or... I try to upload a file tiff of 5,7 Go, but I can't.

    really, really excellent work. completely dispels the idea that you need some fancy shmancy robot to make these sorts of images-- and the fact that you had to reduce resolution from 6-7 gigapixels is just out of control. nice, can't wait to see more!
