Primes as pictures
Lets say we have mega prime
So it can put in matrix of 1000*1000 pixels and then any of number in prime can be associated by another color. I look for solution where I can a: change size of matrix b change "color" of numbers as I wish Did you seen something like that on Net?

I did something similar to this a few years ago. The most recent prime, which I believe to be M74207281, has 22,338,618 digits. If one wanted a truly square image, then said image would need to be 4327 x 4327 pixels. I arrived at this by taking the square root of the number of digits, and rounding up. This probably coudn't be done on a screen, but I believe ti could be done in RAM then saved to a bitmap file. Using colors could be misleading. I would use grayscale. A value of 0 (zero) would be white, and 9 would be black. The values between could be represented by increasing the grayscale value by 25.

I used something like this as my profile picture on mymathforum for many years.

Code:
0 = 250,250,250 1 = 225,225,225 2 = 200,200,200 3 = 175,175,175 4 = 150,150,150 5 = 125,125,125 6 = 100,100,100 7 = 50,50,50 8 = 25,25,25 9 = 0,0,0 It would depend on what type of monitor a person has in regards to being able to see the entire image, without some type of resampling.

I've been working on this as a side project for over a year. I'm having problems with R where lines that should overlap do not, and I can't figure out a way to correct that. The following images are intentionally in low resolution, because it does not meet my standards:
M49, base 10 M30, base 6 This is a common idea, but I got it specifically from Nadieh Bremer. I will point you to her wonderful blog for the explanation of these: https://www.visualcinnamon.com/portfolio/theartinpi (Her code has a few quirks and has trouble with large numbers, so I rewrote the bulk of it.) I also converted M49 to base 2^241 in order to have (almost) every colour in the 24bit colour space represent a digit. Here is that image (I cannot upload it to a hosting site because they compress large files): Google drive link

Amusingly, I remembered this previous work, and first searched using Google Images using the term "Prime Curve". This is the result I got back. And, of course, my girlfriend then immediately entered the room asking what I would like for dinner. Thankfully she has a good sense of humour, but I'm going to cook tonight....
