Thank you. Why 1 Pixel Image?
If all I want is to see white, why would I need more than one giant pixel? It's not that I don't want to see the fine variations between a 100% white pixel and another 100% white pixel... it's just that it's useless... There's no white image that is lighter than 1 white pixel... 1 byte? I don't even know...

I have both this white pixel and a black pixel in my textures library 8-)
Bob James wrote: How do you make a 1 pixel image? :?
LOL There are several methods!

A - From an image editor:

1 - Open your image editor of choice;
2 - File > New...
3 - On the image size dialog you set it to 1px x 1px.
4 - Open the paint bucket tool
5 - Paint the only available layer white;
6 - All your pixels are now white;
7 - Export your image in your prefered format (I tend to love png but why bother, you can use jpg, tiff, gif and if you want your white level to be really powerfull use an EXR with 32-bit depth and crank the brightness to the max! That should be fun!)

B - From Thea:

1 - Setup any kind of scene with a light source;
2 - Create a camera with a resolution of 1px x 1px or override your current camera resolution on Darkroom;
3 - Set exposure settings like this:
- ISO 99999;
- F-Number 0.1;
- Shutter Speed 0.1;
5 - Save the image to any of the formats above (HDR should also be fun)

C - From Sketchup:

1 - Delete everything from your sketchup model;
2 - Set your style to have a white background with no sky or ground;
3 - Set your style to don't display axis;
4 - Export 2D graphic;
5 - 2D graphic options set your widt or height (wichever is the biggest) to 1 px;
6 - Save as any format you seen above (minus exr or hdr)

D - From the Internet:

1 - Google Search;
2 - Download.

E - From here:

I was laughing, when I was trying to download each pixel. And that made right clicking on them very difficult.

It also brings back the memories of kerkythea's and podium's sky color from the beginning of my rendering career. Maybe I will think of some feature request.

Oh you were trying to click on them? I was trying to clean them from my screen with a cloth... I was going to kill the bug that was running up and down my screen when I noticed the regular vertical pattern while scrolling. That's when i knew I had found 2 pixels... You have to excuse me, but in this 4K monitor I tend to loose pixels around...

非常了不起的改进!thea即将是接近完美的渲染器了。特别是剖面渲染,自动识别SU的设置,非常人性化,超级赞!现在剩下的只是如何加快渲染速度的问题了。
为这次升级赞美鼓掌!

Great improvement! Thea is about to be close to the perfect rendering device. Especially in the Section rendering, automatic identification of SU settings, very user-friendly, super praise! Now the only question is how to speed up the rendering speed.
Applaud this upgrade!

I sincerely hope you and Theodor enjoyed conveying that bitingly sarcastic reply to a sincere and honest, albeit ignorance displaying, question. I did not.

Sorry Bob James, It was sarcastic and I thought it was a funny way to lighten up the answer too.

But all the answers I gave are absolutelly correct and you can follow them.

I sincerelly apologize as I can relate to what you felt but I didn't intentionally wanted you to feel that way.

I'll moderate this kind of interventions but I hope you keep asking your honest questions if you have them as if I know the answers, I will try giving them the best I can.

The 2p perspective works well in SU2015, but something apparently has changed for SU2014 and earlier, am I right?
