    Hi all, can anyone tell me how many bytes (bits?) it takes to describe a
    pixel in a jpeg compressed picture? I have been enjoying this enormous
    picture here http://www.tpd.tno.nl/smartsite966.html
    which is 2.5 billion pixels! Out of curiosity I just wondered how big a
    file that would be? I'm guessing jpeg, they are probably using some spliffo
    new compression system or something :)
    Still, it is quite good fun..haven't found any nekkid ladies (or men) in the
    windows yet but it is good enough to read numberplates & see individual
    leaves!
    Good fun, give it a go, Andy
