Over the past month or so, every time i try to upload an image to zoom.it, it shows up as just a blank white screen. When i click 'show original image' it takes me to the right page, but it will not show up on the zoom.it site. Very frustrating, tried it in all 3 browers Chrome, Safari and FireFox. Same issue.

Anybody else having problems?

Hey there, Kyle,

The team that created zoom.it (the Seadragon team in Microsoft Live Labs) closed in November 2010 and after their employees were transferred to Bing, many of them left Microsoft so there's no one left at Microsoft who looks after zoom.it anymore - even to fix bugs.

If you run Windows, try downloading Deep Zoom Composer for an offline zoom.it conversion process. Choose the Deep Zoom Image/Seadragon Ajax option rather than the Deep Zoom Collection option and you should be able to upload the output folder to a free hosting option like Dropbox or your own server.

Then you can either link people to the view page on the server or simply embed the viewer on the page of your choice, as you would with zoom.it.
