Ollie, IMHO, is one of the most intelligent commenters here on IAB. I always look out for his avatar, to see what he has to say.
And I'm a Brit.

Go easy HiEv, Ollie is not very bright.
He's a conservative so don't confuse him with facts or math.

Ok so the single picture one blew my freakin mind. The one with a million colors trips you out if you look at it long enough.

@OldOllie: It's the same image, it's just your browser scales it down, so some colors aren't displayed.

Also, your math is wrong. Each pixel in a full color BMP is 24-bits, which is 3 bytes, one byte for red, green, and blue each. So 1,000,000 pixels x 3 bytes = 3 MB (SI) or ~2.86 MB. I have no idea how you got "more than 2 GB" from that.

There is a way to get a JPEG to store the colors correctly, but you'd have to create the DCUs (the blocks that make up JPEG images) manually.

@HiEv I think maybe you got me on a technicality. My browser is set to a zoom factor of 100%, but the image only displays at 640 x 640. That is because the HTML code specifies width="640". So, THIS image does not contain 1 million colors However, if I right-click it, copy it, and paste it into Irfanview, it is indeed 1000 x 1000. I, too, doubt seriously, though, that it still has 1 million unique colors after going through jpeg compression. A bitmap this size would be more than 2 Gb.

@OldOllie: The image is 1000x1000, which is 1 million pixels in that image. You may be displaying the image smaller than that on the web page, however the original image likely does have 1 million different colors, assuming the JPEG was saved properly to preserve the chrominance and luminance data. (If it were saved as PNG instead of JPEG I'd be more confident that it really does have 1 million colors.)

That said, the human eye/brain is completely unable to discern the difference between many of those colors, especially the darker ones.

There cannot possibly be 1 million colors in that image. There are only ~2 million pixels in a 1920 x 1080 HD monitor, and that image is considerably less than half of the screen.

Still, cool stuff.
