Description:

This is from kde-look.org,
but here is where it has to be ;)

---------------------------------

I was googling to find a panoramic photo of the open space to use as compiz/beryl cube skydome and I found this:

http://www.spitzer.caltech.edu/Media/mediaimages/sig/sig05-025.shtml

a 400MB monster of 162 Megapixels (27000x6000) fakecolor photo of the milky way.

It was impressive, but I had to manipulate it because it was not a circular panorama and because it was too much bright and starry.

This is a 360° view of the Galaxy in 4096x2048 (8MB PNG image).
I kept the resolution as high as reasonably possible: if that's too much for your video card then scale it down, but remember that the dimensions must be a power of 2 in order to work with beryl (e.g. 2048x2048 or 1024x512).

The third preview is a crop of the photo at full resolution, so you can get the idea of what the effective per-pixel resolution of the image is.

Please vote

Enjoy ;)

download.php is some kind of problem with KDE-Look, Compiz-Themes and all of these servers... It's not anything critical: you just have to rename the file with his correct name.

You can avoid the problem: just don't use the "save link as" menu: open the link instead and then, as in this case you are viewing an image, right click and do "save image as".
