Very Big Photos


A Series of Very Large, Scrollable, "Virtual Reality" Photos by Phil Konstantin

* Note: I am moving this website to a different server. There may be some interruptions. August 23, 2013



With the advent of large, megapixel cameras, people can now produce very large photos with amazing detail. Using a standard internet browser, it is hard to appreciate the details of these photos. I have modified these pictures so that you can truly appreciate their beauty. You can also get a feeling as if you are really there. Click on any of the links below to go to the page with that virtual photo. Each of these is quite large. So, it might take a while to load. The quality of some photos is better than others. The ones with "360" after the country name cover 360 degree views.

Once you get to a photo, you can use your mouse, or the button controls pictured below, to zoom in or out, move up down or from side to side within the photo. Clicking on the circlular button makes it move around the photo on its own. The box with 4 arrows expands the photo to full screen.


When the Photos' titles end in "PD", this means they are in the public domain. If they end in "By NASA/ISS", then its “Image courtesy of the Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center" through the International Space Station. It is contains "LOC", the source was the U.S. Library of Congress. If it says "By" and someone's name, then it is their photo which they have released for use under certain circumstances (with which I believe I have complied). Many of the original photos were found on Wikipedia and Flickr.

It is highly recommended that you maximize your browser window to get the full effect. The page is broken down into two sections: My Photos, and Other People's Photos.
As of July 14, 2012, there were over 6,300 Very Large Photos displayed on this website
