Tag yourself in Olympics zoomable gigapixel images

Photographer David Bergman has created a series of impressive gigapixel photographs of the Olympics, enabling people to zoom into the crowd and tag themselves via Facebook.

The panoramic shots, taken by the Sports Illustrated photographer, are each made up of 200 individual photos. The final resolution image is 98,101 x 31,747, meaning you can zoom right the way into the faces of the crowd.

Not only are the photographs beautiful to look at, but also you can zoom in, pan around and if you find yourself or someone you know, tag yourself/them via Facebook.

So far two photographs have been completed. Click on the links to see the women’s gymnastics final on July 31st and the women’s beach volleyball game on August 3rd GigaPan pics.

There seems to be one draw back of the photograph's powerful zoom – you might get caught in the crowd doing something when you thought no one was looking.

Let us know in the comments section below if you manage to find yourself in the crowd.
