How to get a HiRes FullScreen with Zoomify or Googlemaps

Post by bigwade » Wed Jan 16, 2008 6:39 pm

Hi All,
How to get a HiRes FullScreen with Zoomify or Googlemaps for dummies.
I have seen some wonderfull work at the gallery.
I did my first mosaic test last week and want that FullScreen in Zoomify.
Photoshop has an export function but I want it FullScreen.
(CS3 zoomify output is limited to 1000 pix wide)
How to do that.
Changing html lines ? what and where ?
I have allready downloaded the zoomify stand-alone, tried it, but no html file.
I am more a drag and drop person and have no/hardly html skills.
Is there a GUI in the Flash version of Zoomify??, I don't like the code stuff.

2e, I have seen other photo's, googlemaps-like, I like that too but how to build it.......
btw I am a Mac-User and don't have a PC.
The goal is to get a HiRes Mosaic on the web, the easy way.
Zoomify or Google, I don't mind.
Tips are welcom.
Have Fun.

btw and yes I have surched the forum..... :-)

The free version of zoomify will generate a file called Templete.htm or something like that. In this file are some lines related to the viewer size. Look for the height and width after the "id="theMovie"" and "name="theMovie""
Something like pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/dow ... kwaveFlash" name="theMovie" height="850" width="1200"> </object><br>

The height and width are the viewer size. You will want to adjust the table sizes to the same width.
best regards, Darcy

Zoomify

Post by BrianWatson » Mon Sep 08, 2008 1:01 pm

It would be nice to get zoomify to fill the screen, whatever screen resolution the user has. You can get it to fill the full WIDTH of the screen, but I haven't been able to get it to fill the full HEIGHT.

Has anybody has any success with this?

Here's an example:
http://www.brianwatsonphoto.co.uk/Pano/ ... pZoom.html
Widening the window, the picture expands to fill (90% of) the full width. The height is set to a fixed pixel height, because using height="100%" just doesn't work.

Regards to all,

Brian

there are a couple of versions of the zoomify.swf floating around. the one that comes with photoshop is strangely "castrated" and doesn't go beyond 1000px. what you can do, is look around and see if find one that displays beyond 1000px, look into the source of that page, and see if that swf/code does the trick for you.

Thanks, found one at: http://www.gigastitch.com/ff_test.html which seems to do the job!

The example I gave above is obsolete, and now just shows an ordinary Zoomify picture, because I couldn't get it to work.

Hey guys,
after posting I got help from my friend Wim Koornneef who made a pano2VR template to create html files for Full Screen, multiple zoomify's on the fly.
The zoomify's are created with the free zoomify program.
The Zoomify compression is a bit high but you get the idea.

Maybe you've seen this on the nodal Ninja Forum before:
G9, RRS L-bracket, Q-Top Quickmount, Feisol 3441 Travel tripod, upper part of the centre column used as rotator,
Camera at M, AF, one row, JPG, 80 iso, daylight etc.

http://tinyurl.com/3fowux
use the arrow keys to go to the next/previous.

01) 18498x3997 pix - 211,5Mb
02) 19360x3904 pix - 216,2Mb
03) 14130x3651 pix - 147,6Mb
04) 5807x3382 pix - 56,2Mb
05) 15764x2898 pix - 130,7Mb
06) 11825x3829 pix - 129,5Mb

At max zoom these images are not as nice as results from a dslr.
Camera Jpegs not RAW..
Good enough for print anyway.
These are all stitched images.

These ones: http://tinyurl.com/58xvwn
are just one-shots from the new G10 but the idea is the same.
At "lokatie" you will get Google Maps. (just one for all)
Use the arrows or numbers to see the other images.
The presentation this way is rather basic but works (and fast to make)
Have Fun !

Going full-screen with Zoomify

Post by BrianWatson » Fri Jul 02, 2010 3:25 pm

One of the PAID versions of Zoomify (Zoomify Design), but not the free version, has a full-screen option. There are warnings about problems with Flash, but I have never encountered any.

I use Zoomify Design a lot, and have a gallery of zoomable pictures here:
http://www.brianwatsonphoto.co.uk/Zoom/indexzoom.html

krpano http://krpano.com/ applies the same technique as Zoomify to 360 degree panoramas, splitting large files into many smaller ones which are loaded on demand. There are some examples here:
http://www.brianwatsonphoto.co.uk/QTVR/indexQTVR.html

I have no connection with either of these products other than as a satisfied customer and enthusiastic user.

Deepzoom composer and zoomify stuff...

Post by KingPANO » Thu Nov 25, 2010 8:43 pm

dp.math,

Thank you for entertaining me for the afternoon admiring your images and brushing up on my crude knowledge of Italian.

I've spent half my life working with slide film with high-end drum scanners and LVT machines, also playing with the diVinci machine($500Ksoft/hard ware) then using a lowly Macintosh 100mhz with 72mb ram to use Live Picture 2.0-2.6 (anyone remember that program?) It gave PhotoShop 2.5-3.0 a run for its money and made the diVinci machine obsolete to a degree.

Enough of my odd history...

The new Zoomify and other high rez image viewers remind me of the pyramid type Live Picture IVUE files where the server would RIP the image to the screen to speed up image manipulation...I see this mostly in the DeepZoom composer Silverlight program. I wonder when they were going to take that technique of the shelf and use it (my opinion only).

A brief history of Live Picture purely from memory:
Bruno Delean spent a year with his grandmother in the French mountain region around 1989-90 and wrote out in long hand the IVUE and FITS file format. He based it on a winter day when it was snowing and thought that what all of us know that no snow flake looks the same and are independent. His idea was the same to make a resolution independent pixel program. I don't know how he did it but I keep a few older Macintosh's to play with the program. In 1996, I used Live Picture to make a +200 layer 8' x 20' mural at +300dpi onto a duratrans photo printer(whats an inkjet printer?). PhotoShop would of choked...but in 2010 I see this same detail on a bad wi-fi internet connection and zoom into an obscene amount just count threads of cloth, to engraving techniques in stone to beautiful calligraphy in maps, and can tell when they had to re-dip the quill in ink to finish the text.

dp.math thank you for adding the links. I truly enjoyed them.

Now I will continue on with the old fashion way of making panoramic images by manually rotating a panohead and using a cable system with mirror lock up on an old Sigma SD-14 or my Canon Rebel 300D.

Sorry for the rant... but Happy Thanksgiving! no turkey or cranberry sauce for me. I also fulfilled my quota with Max for at least 1 post a year
