I can't seem to zoom in more than one level on my image (http://zoom.it/B88O). Anybody know why or how I can fix it please?

Thanks

The source image you used is only 640x480. Perhaps this was just a thumbnail of a larger image. Or, this is just one image (i.e. the current view) from a dynamic web page which is providing its own zooming technology.

You need to provide a link to the full resolution version of this mosaic if you want zoom.it to be able to provide the ability to zoom in. It can only zoom based on the content you provide.

Hi Bill,

Thanks very much for the reply. Yes it's an image from Picasa so obviously I've been a bit naive there. Still not sure how I can add the full image though since there's no upload feature. I'm assuming I'll have to find somewhere else to host the file and then link there.

Thanks!

Col

I'm not familiar with the current state of Picasa. They should provide an option to get a link directly to the full resolution source file. This is possible with Flickr, SkyDrive, DropBox and other services I am familiar with. I suspect that Picasa provides this capability, too. If not, it's free to set up a SkyDrive account with more than enough storage to host many, many pictures.

Wow, yeah I think that might have sorted it! Have uploaded the picture to Dropbox and now think I have the original file link. Just in the Zoom.it queue now to see if it works.

Thanks very much for your help - above and beyond the call of duty... much appreciated!!
