  • There's actually a lot more detail available through the Met's viewer. It would be possible to systematically extract the larger image in tiles and then reassemble it. This is not even technically illegal, although I'm sure the Met would prefer us not to do it. It would be time-consuming but might be worth the effort. Chick Bowen 00:34, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I think I remember seeing a tool for the GIMP which allows it to be reassembled very quickly (and I used it last year) but I can't recall where (don't remember the article, either. Some governor of New York). — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:36, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I'm not at all convinced there is "lot more detail available" with the Met's viewer. I just think it lets you view the original at 200%. I downloaded the "original" and resized it 200% in IrfanView. The Met's viewer version is slightly softer and I can't find any extra detail at all. -- Colin°Talk 18:28, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
