Tale of the Genji woodblock[edit]

This image is gorgeous, but the TIFF is so huge (500megs) that my computer cannot compress it into a JPG. (By the way, the three downloadable component images do not totally line up--they're like a quarter degree rotated--so really it would be best to go from the ginormous all-in-one triptych file.) It could go in a lot of articles, such as Tale of the Genji, Woodblock printing in Japan, Utagawa Kunisada and Utagawa Hiroshige, etc. Can someone else with a better computer upload this image? Thanks!

  • Your post hasn't been forgotten; its just that... I waited three hours for it to download, crashed the computer twice trying to save it full-size as a jpeg and once downsampling it. I finally managed to save it as a 44 megapixel, 10 megabyte jpeg (that's half resolution at each dimension). Now I've got to upload it... Just saying that this is the best I can manage, so if you can get a bigger image up, go for it. thegreen J Are you green? 19:07, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Wonderful image, but a bit crooked (the matting, that is, which presumably could be corrected). This can be corrected via rotation of the image, I guess. Spikebrennan 20:21, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
