Is it just me, or have they pixelated some of it?

I don't know if that's a joke or if you are experiencing what I am. (although I do give credit to the joke)
Something about thier display technology...
As you pan, the off screen image momentarily is highly pixelated for a moment.
Also; there seems to be a "jump" to a much lower resolution no matter how carefully you zoom. I tried waiting to see if the display would catch up, but it didn't.

I see they put a watermark on it. I knew copyright law was getting ridiculous, but I didn't realize "The Last Supper" was still under... ;)

(although I do give credit to the joke)Thanks! :) that helps to make up for all the unappreciated ones that I made on purpose :)

I didn't notice the watermark, I just see large ("unimportant") areas of it that are extremely low resolution.

I'm not either. At the very least, there would probably be technological copyright's involved. I wonder if the image itself qualifies simply as a "derivative work," though - given that it's a (relatively) exact copy.

Of course, just because they put a watermark on it doesn't mean they actually have a legal copyright claim to it, anyways. Doesn't even mean they think they do. :)

The watermark says "H9." At the default resolution, one appears in the blank gray doorway area at Jesus' feet. There are several on-screen at any resolution.
