Parallel Processing

I need to process 4000 images on a super computer using parallel processing. What would you advise?

Dear Daniel,

It is not possible to process the same project on several computers (unless you could do it in a completely transparent fashion, where the process would appear to be on a single computer). What can be done is to split up the project into several subprojects and process each on a separate computer (the outputs would then also be split). 

Best regards,

4,000 images doesn’t tell the story…you need to calculate total pixel count.  I ran 60 billion pixels at higher than average settings on my desktop in a reasonable amount of time…less than 2 days.

At 60 billion pixels and 4,000 images, that would be equivalent to 15MP camera so I doubt a “super-computer” is needed for 4,000 images.
