Massive 750,000 Layer PSD Took 4 Years to Create

Digital photo-realist artist extraordinaire, Bert Monroy, spent the past 4 years cooking up this masterpiece of Times Square that serves as a tribute to the “who’s who” in the world of digital imaging.

The flattened image is 6.52GB and was built with almost 3,000 individual Photoshop and Illustrator files.  The image is zoomable on his site if you want to get closer up to personalities like Russel Brown, John Knoll and Scott Kelby (among many others) within the image.

The finished image will be on display at Photoshop World in Orlando, Florida from March 30 to April 1, 2011.

Big deal – talk about a waste of time – the final image looks horrible; completely artificial looking faces. If this was meant to be a hand-made “gigapixel” type of image, it sadly falls far short.

Sycophantic twaddle, 4 years wasted.

Perhaps street photographers can appreciate this…

I’m sure I could think of many ways to waste my time, but doing something like this and wasting 4 years of my life on crap would never be an option. I love photography and that picture is just awful.
