new module - Zoomify
|Posted: Fri, 2006-10-13 17:18|
I would like to develop a new module, which would add support for Zoomify into Gallery2.
Basically Zoomify allows viewing hi-res images without downloading the full file, with a free flash viewer available at http://www.zoomify.com and a free python generator (ZoomifyImage) at http://sourceforge.net/projects/zoomifyimage.
The issue has been briefly discused at http://gallery.menalto.com/node/49260 with no follow-up. Here are my ideas expressed there:
- use ZoomifyImage, a python script to generate the tiles from the base image
Options could be:
I tested the ZoomifyImage script on a linux server with PIL as graphics backend, and it works great (but takes about 8 seconds for a 6 MP, 2.5 MB image).
I would need some input from devs as to where to put the tiles, and perhaps which module I could start from to make this module. Does anyone want to participate?
So is there anyone interested into working with me on this project or helping out so I can get started on the right track?
