High Res Photos For Backgrounds?

Post by l008com » Tue Oct 30, 2007 2:18 am

Anyone know where I can get some really high resolution rail photos? Like seriously big stuff, for modern LCDs? To span my dual monitor system, i need like 3600 x 1200 pixels. A single 30" Cinema display is 2560 x 1600 pixels. And of course the bigger the better cause as we all know, the more you shrink down an image in photoshop, the better the quality of the image.

I just took a quick look at the properties of one photo I took with my Pentax K10D, an advanced amateur, low-end pro type of camera. It was 3822x2591 and 3.5 MB, JPG format. In raw format it would be around 30 MB.
