Editing big pictures

New software processes hundred-billion-pixel photos in seconds
“Computer scientists from the University of Utah have developed computer software that allows editing of “extreme resolution” image files in a matter of seconds, a process that could previously have taken hours. Whereas existing editing suites require the full gigapixel image to be loaded into a computer’s memory before manipulation can begin, the new development draws a lower resolution preview image from an externally-stored image into the editing screen. Users are said to benefit from being able to make image-wide modifications in seconds rather than hours and on devices normally not nearly powerful enough for such things”
