Deep Zoom Composer

I've been meaning to have some fun with Deep Zoom for a while. I was reading Mary Jo Foley's blog posting on the new Microsoft Research project called Seadragon Ajax a little earlier but didn't make much headway. Then I realized I had already downloaded Deep Zoom Composer... what was I waiting for?!!



It will prompt you to create a free PhotoZoom account, which is basically an online photo album. You can then open you high resolution image in Composer and it will allow you to export it to your new PhotoZoom album, where it creates an embeddable link for you to use in your blog or website.

Deep Zoom


Amazing definition for a 2.5 megapixel camera. I really must try it with 10 megapixels or better. You should keep a close eye on the research website if you want to play with all the new toys for free. It's almost Christmas, right? :-O

Very nice work Damon! Is there an easy way to select a particular image for enlargement? I tried using the ctrl key and it helped somewhat. Amazing effect though Smile It kinda gives us a feel for where we are heading with UIs, and hopefully IDEs, in the coming years.
