    My wife and I were in Times Square a few weeks ago,
    it looked empty by comparison.

    If they processed the seams between the images manually, masking the
    heads without bodies and other similar stuff out, these things would not
    happen. But these gigapixel freaks want to merge thousands of images to
    achieve a pixel count as high as possible, making this postprocessing a
    too time-consuming task.

    There was also a case of a gigapixel image which had a strange grid
    pattern in the sky. Upon closer inspection it turned out that this was
    due to the vignetting of the individual images. The creator of that
    image had not bothered to postprocess the vignetting away. What's the
    point in having a gigapano if the pano is not seamless.

    Gigapan captures like any technology which pushes the envelope is going
    to have some compromises when moving elements (people) are present.
    That said there are some truly incredible Gigapan, & other high
    gigapixel pano image landscapes, and a few which include crowds.
