Zoomify Flash!

Wow, this one is awesome.
I've been cracking my brains on how to create a client application that would let you zoom in and out of huge image files without any RAM problems. I had thought of splitting the whole thing into a big image array and load in only the necessary parts at the time needed. Of course in that case I would have needed to create stepped resolution maps, which would have meant a ton of sweat and tears.

Now sudddenly this morning I droped by Zoomify Flash and found this beautifull set of photoshop-droplet, client-side flash component, and server-side cgi helper, that brings the whole thing together in seconds and looks and performs beautifully - hundred times better than I could have ever imagined...

Check it out working over here

So whenever I have time (yeah sure) I'd love to give this a try.
