High Resolution Images for Google from Prado


Art lover now can scroll around a three-dimensional representation of the Prado museum gallery with a computer mouse and look at high resolution images of works of Las Meninas by Velázquez; The Annunciation by Fra Angelico or The Third of May by Goya.

A Google spokesman said: "The paintings have been photographed in very high resolution and contain as many as 14,000 million pixels (14 gigapixels).

I wish these guys would come and take photos of my work! Now just imagine giclée prints from this type of high definition shots!
