Just done some housekeeping here, Sam has added all the links you folks have shared into the first post, and I have cleared up the rest of the thread by removing the posts containing links now in the top section.

Awsome.

If any one needs 180 million pixel panoramas let me know. (be warned they are 500mb each in tiff ). And need to be resized to 100mb for octane's sake (32bit beta only)
