It depends, I once loaded a 1,2 GB file in Photoshop on a computer with only 768MB of memory and Windows Vista. It took "only" around two minutes and the computer was still usable.

Also how are we going to view the 1 gig image file?? that will take forever to load in PS or windowz.

I want to see the images myself ... but 1.7gb file ! not many people will be able to open that in one application.
Hmmm yes well... since that is the photo most discussed here in a 200 page plus thread it does seem interesting that that one was picked... but I suppose you will say its because it was the "picture of the century"
It is also interesting that it was stated originally it would be difficult to process these pictures and yet they can pick one out so easily.
Paranoia? How so? But do try to bear in mind that ATS IS a conspiracy site... ?
what would there be here if there were no conspiracies to track?
Later I will post a scan from our printed copy of this spot...

Why would Nasa release such a high res image for everyone to pick over? Answer: because they would have gone over the image and airbrushed out what they didnt want you to see. They could even change things to make you see what they want you to see in those images.

Have their been any high-res pics released from Kaguya yet? I've had a quick browse but can't find much, and I would've thought there'd been pictures released by now. I even thought we may've gotten a look at the original landing site/flag, but I guess not. Silly me
By not finding much I mean i've found a few, but nothing really with close up detail like i'd expect.

I have to agree with the general consensus on here, if there was anything of interest on the Copernicus picture there is no way that NASA would release it. I don't understand what everyone is getting excited about.
That is why I posted first an unaltered version, only cropped (15735 by 21827 pixels would be too much for the ATS Media Portal ).

It is best to have this unadulterated.
All CRT monitors and all high end LCD monitors can show 24 bit images, but what we are talking about is 16 bit per channel instead of 8 bits per channel, making it possible to go from black (with a value of 0) to white in 65,536 steps instead of the 256 for 8 bits per channel.
Pretty much any monitor built in the last few years can handle a 16 bit image I think.
That is what I said, it would have (as this original possibly has) more detail than we can see, unless someone has a monitor that can show 281,474,976,710,656 instead of the common 16,777,216.
I have a program from Nikon that is good with 16 bit and I can maybe enhance the right way by faking an HDR image and perhaps pull out more detail. There will be way more detail than you can see on your monitor.
Unfortunately that does not work with me, I do not see any change from shades of grey to shades of any colour.
Another safe method to make the detail better without altering anything is to use a Sepia filter while leaving the luminosity intact. It will make detail stand out without loosing data by altering levels or adjusting contrast and leave that Filter Gallery alone. Adding or removing detail won't help.
Why ASSUME there was anything to hide in the first place!
Seeing as they are a few mapping missions going on at the moment and still to be done maybe once they are complete all the Apollo hoax ,secret moonbases and alien building BULLCOOKIES will stop but it wont because you guys will just say the info is faked or altered because the truth would be to DULL for you.
