I've an exhibition coming up that includes a 14 metre long (by 110cm high)
print of Leicester city centre at dusk (23GB file 166,000 pixels long).

I'm printing it on a Canon iPF8300 (which is a saga in itself, but I'll leave that until the print is on the wall - suffice to say I have one copy now successfully printed and rolled up)

Obviously part of the physical impact of it is just its sheer size on the wall, but how to show the image on the web?

I'd like to include it on the exhibition info page at my site, but screens and web pages aren't really that good for 13:1 aspect ratio... I can get a pic of me standing next to it, but I'd like to be able to show how much sheer detail there is in that many pixels...

Has anyone used the Zoomify feature, that's built into Photoshop?

I'd look to get the non-Flash version of Zoomify if I was going to use it, but I was wondering if anyone had experience of using it, or any other online pano viewing tool? (preferably one that does not require much coding ;-)

BTW - If anyone in the UK wants to see the exhibition, I've more info at:
http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/exhibitions/leicester_angle.html
When the rush is over (it opens 2nd May) I'll be doing a much longer article about all the 'making of' issues

bye for now

Try using www.photosynth.net. It's one of the best ways to view panos I've found on the web, even if what you are uploading isn't a true Photosynth. You can embed the viewer in your web page as well very easily, which gives your viewers an option of a full-screen experience.

It's a bit wonky to get the image uploaded. I think you need to download ICE (http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/groups/ivm/ice/) and make a single-image stitch.

To see what the experience is like look at this entry on my blog: http://www.danecreek.com/blog/2010/06/25/petermann-island-antarctica.html.

Thanks, but I see that one needs silverlight installed on a browser. I'm trying to avoid flash and its ilk, so the HTML5 version of the zoomify player looks useful.

I wanted to make sure that it worked on my iPad, since I often have that with me to show examples of work (something the new iPad screen is superb for if you want to show real detail in images)
