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.

Qualities of PSD include supernatural powers of imagination and an overwhelming desire to constantly make the world more beautiful. PSD affects people from different walks of life. In fact, there is a high probability that you have PSD.
