Hi loaded www.zoom.it. On the right of the screen is a selection of images, previously submitted. I clicked on the 3rd-from-top image & it appeared in silverlight. However the URL for the page isn't present & I can't find it yet... I would very much like to bookmark it & also share it around...

If it helps the image is the [Blue Marble 3.7 gigapixels].
I was actually downloading this from NASA when I stumbled across this on the Zoom.it homepage (fortunately as my download >4 hours)...

Please help me out Microsoft?!?

Hi,

Sorry, but we never did provide direct links to those demo images. They are stored in a different area from user-created content, and the home page of zoom.it is a specialized viewer that enables the image selection via the sidebar. As a result, there is no way to have a direct URL that links to each demo image; we never implemented that.

The link in the lower-left corner of the image will take you to the NASA page where the source data is stored. There are some lower resolution versions of the full image there, which do have zoom.it versions. For example: http://zoom.it/FmsZ.

However, the full resolution version is provided as eight separate segments in eight separate files, so there is no way to directly create a zoom.it version from those separate files.

We built the demo version with some tools we created to handle extremely large files. If you implement your own version of the viewer, you can link to the Deep Zoom image on our web page (it's at http://static.seadragon.com/content/m..., but we don't provide a stand-alone viewer or page for the sample images other than the zoom.it home page. The best you can do is provide the link to zoom.it with instructions to click on the 3rd thumbnail.

Hi thanks for acknowledging, I saw this (https://getsatisfaction.com/livelabs/...) & learnt a little on Seadragon anyways. Someone posted it here & it loads as first image which is fine: http://expression.microsoft.com/en-us....

ok off to Deep Zoom section! If it's relevant, I watched the video 'Scenarios' at http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/... at 00:45 it flips through pages of a document, I would like to try this template... I'm not sure if DeepZoom needs to be coupled with 'Expressions' software to achieve this..?

I was going to use a flipbook though I think this might work better with longer documents... (than say magazines)
