Can't use PhotoZoom content with Seadragon Mobile iPhone app.

  • Problem
  • Updated 6 years ago
This page gives instructions for adding PhotoZoom content:
http://livelabs.com/seadragon-mobile/...
It says "Enter a PhotoZoom username", but there is no place to do this that I can find. The Seadragon mobile app downloaded Dec 14th gives the ability to add content from three sources: Deep Zoom Content, Photosynth User, and RSS Feed. I see nothing mentioning PhotoZoom.

Let me know when this functionality is added.

Due to a last minute bug in the PhotoZoom service the feature was pulled, but since the app was submitted to Apple the bug has been fixed. We'll be submitting a new version to Apple in a day or two that will re-enable the feature.

If you want to try it now, though, the functionality exists but is a bit hard to get to. Hit '+' on the main screen and select 'RSS Feed'. Enter the following url:

<a href="about:blank">http://photozoom.mslivelabs.com/API/AlbumListFeed.ashx?alias={YOUR USERNAME}</a>


Your stuff should then show up on the main screen. Or, you can wait until the nice easy way gets pushed out in a week or so :)

Enter it exactly as shown but replace {YOUR USERNAME} with your user name. For example, http://photozoom.mslivelabs.com/API/A...

Just a little more feedback. It seems whenever I add pictures to the PhotoZoom album I have to delete and resubscribe to the RSS feed from the app. I might be missing something, but I just wanted to mention it.

The app will only fetch a feed automatically every ~30 minutes. Did you try hitting the refresh button?

Yeah, it works pretty well. The SeaDragon part works better than I had imagined. Good work!

I had some problem when I updated the photozoom album. I get a message saying "unable to load content. Make sure you are connected to the internet and try again" I forgot what I did to make this work again.

Any suggestions?

It took me a minute to solve the previous problem, but it took 3 tries and as day days to remember how to post here. So, I solved my previous problem and uploaded 140 photos. Now I find there is a limit of 100 photos using Photozoom. This seems a bit small. After all, the beauty of the infinite zoom is really limited when there are fewer pictures in the mosaic, don't you think?

The ability IS there to upload more than 100- I did it on Monday. Why did they change it?

Is there another way to put , say 300 photos up there.

I can't use Photosynth as I am on Macintosh equipment. Please help!
