I'm trying to view a 7.6 mb .jpg I downloaded. My graphics program (Paint Shop Pro) tells me not enough memory is available. When I try to load it with Explorer I just get a huge box with a red X in the upper corner. I have 512mb of RAM and have no other programs open =/ Any ideas please?
This is the picture I couldn't get to work in .JPG: photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov...g/PIA03394 (link doesn't take you to the actual JPG but a thumbnail with information). It's of the globe as seen from space in three different perspectives.
I found a much better one that works though. Before I link it two quick warnings: the image is in .TIFF format, and the file is 121 MB in size so you're going to need probably minimum of 512 MB RAM to be able to enjoy looking at it. It's a relief map of the entire globe, in approximately 22000x9600 resolution. It's detailed enough that you can zoom in and see very small geographic areas (like the SF Bay Area) in pretty amazing detail. It's one of the coolest things I've downloaded in a very long time :P Here's the link: photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov...A03395.tif , Enjoy
edit: keep in mind the above image is in relief format, not photographic. That means you won't be able make out roads or cities, since its color shaded by topography. Also the poles are missing from the top and bottom, so you can't look at those either =( I used "Imaging for Windows" which comes with my Win98 OS to see it.
And I don't understand why the hell I can view a 120 mb .TIFF image but not a 7mb .JPG =/ Edited by: araxas xev at: 1/3/04 11:45 pm
I'm not going to attempt to download it (on dial-up *cringe*) but it sounds super cool!!
anyone know where I might be able to get a pic of the US at night from space?! I remember one of my teachers had it on his was, it was so cool, different towns were so bright you can see them and out by the plains there was nothing LOL.
Probably that same sight is a good place to look, Dihce. It's got about 750 public-domain images taken from space. Some are really detailed (of a single mountain, for instance) while some of are entire countries. There's plenty of photographic ones on there too, I downloaded a 24 MB one of Los Angeles in photographic format from kind of a side perspective. You can see the freeways, the airport, the mountains, suburbs etc.
Link to the actual site is photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/ , then click on Earth :P Araxas - 65 rogue of Eternal Winds - VazaelleAntiar gimpy 65 necro twink -=- Ravas gimpy 40-some warrior twink
