Microsoft PhotoZoom is Now DeepZoom

No Gravatar

Sorry to unload a nerdy post on you today, but I’ve been housecleaning and I need to tidy up a loose end so that I can feel that I’m finished.

Long time readers will remember that I was once a Microsoft Photozoom fan. It’s a cool way to put your photos on a web site in a way that viewers can zoom in on the details, pan around, and see them easily in full-screen mode.

Anyway, with no notice to users, suddenly PhotoZoom didn’t work any more. I don’t know what happened, and I don’t care, but I notice that it’s now back under a different name.

So, I had to go back to my seven posts that used it and change the links. It wasn’t too difficult, but I don’t know why it couldn’t have been done automatically somehow. I’d hate to be someone who had hundreds of links to it.

So, here are the seven posts that had zoomable photos:

PhotoZoom – The Next Cool Thing

Along Came a Spider

Giant Green Fly

Today’s Inverterbrates

New Panoramas

A Trip to the Supermarket

North Contender in the Dark

You’ll have to install Microsoft Silverlight if you don’t already have it. You may as well get it over with, as more and more web stuff is going to be using it.

    Dear Jan,

    Enjoyed your swim with baracudas, and your test of the 26x zoom on your olympus. I loved my Timberlands too (10 years and going).

    We do Zooming on images in Flash, with an authoring tool that’s easy to use. I would appreciate your feedback since you seem to be a good tester. It’s PC only today, but a new PC and Mac version will be available by end of June.

    You can see some examples on the web site:

    I’m going to give your zoom stuff a test. It looks interesting.

    Thanks for reading.
