One of the slew of new things that is being released at MIX today is the Deep Zoom Composer powertoy:

If you have followed the Silverlight 2 Beta 1 announcements, Silverlight 2 includes support for the Deep Zoom technology to allow you to quickly and smoothly zoom in on really large images. If you want to see an amazing implementation of the Deep Zoom technology, check out the Hard Rock Memorabilia site: http://memorabilia.hardrock.com/

What is the Deep Zoom Composer?
Deep Zoom Composer allows you to quickly import your own images, arrange and position them to your liking, and export the final output as either a Deep Zoom Image or Collection that can be fed into Silverlight's MutliScaleImage control. This means that you too can use your own images and display them using our Deep Zoom technology.

Because we are currently at MIX, we haven't had  a chance to write a detailed post outlining all of the cool things you can create. Rest assured, we'll be explaining more about this application in future blog posts, but until then, feel free to try this out and let us know what you think.

Cheers!

FYI: In case you are curious, Deep Zoom is related to the SeaDragon technology that we have been demoing in our PhotoSynth application for a while.

  • Hi,

    I tried out the Deep Zoom Composer on a smallish BMNG image and it worked fine. However, every time I attempt a real image BMNG1.jpg 24.9Mb 21600x21600 the import shows the correct file size 24.91Mb but Dimensions1x1 with no view and nothing to export?

    Does anyone know size limitations for Deep Zoom Composer?

  • Randy - there shouldn't be a size limitation. Would it be possible for you to upload your image to a share and drop me an e-mail to its location?

    My e-mail address is kirupac[at]microsoft.com

    I'd be happy to take a look at it and see why it doesn't work as intended.

    Cheers!

  • I did not get the point of this app. I imported 4 images and compose one with them and when i exported the project it created 10 folders 6 of them empty and the other had each of them one on my pics... i also exported a collection but don't know how it works.. the guide i downloaded also doesn't have enough information.. i also say hard rock cafe web site... did not get it...

  • Ivana - check out the example here: http://blogs.msdn.com/expression/archive/2008/03/09/deep-zoom-sample-with-mousewheel-pan-click-zoom.aspx

    The point of the Deep Zoom Composer is to allow you to create the tiled/zoomed images easily for use with the Deep Zoom feature in Silverlight 2.

    Cheers!
