Deep Zoom Example

Publication Date: Sun 30 Mar 2008

We have uploaded a great example of a new feature in Silverlight 2 called Deep Zoom (codename: seadragon). We took a high resoltion shot of a piece of jewellery (thanks to stonesilver) and created the following:


The demo is simply showing the capabilities. We need to edit the photo as there are a few imperfections with the image. We are also going to create a montage of images, so the user can browse a whole product range at once. You will need to install the latest silverlight plug-in. This can be done by simply going to the link above.

Simply left click the image to activate it. You can then do the following

  • Zoom in (Left click)
  • Zoom out (Shift + Left click)
  • Pan (Hold left mouse button and move cursor)

The code required to produce this is very small, and the original code is taken from Scott Hanselman's blog.

I must give a big thank you to Antony Croft for making us aware of this new feature.
