Learning patterns/Recombine tiled images
What problem does this solve?Edit
Image bank of cultural heritage institutes sometimes try to reduce server load when they serve up high resolution images by tiling them. When a visitor to their site wants to zoom in, only the tiles of the part that is zoomed in to is loaded. If these are works that are in the public domain, they can be republished on Wikimedia Commons. In order to get the full resolution, these tiles need to be recombined.
