Image Browser 1.0b7
Operation System: Windows All
Size: 822 KB
Image Browser was designed to allow "browsing" though a huge image (defined here as "several time your screen resolution") without the huge amount of RAM this usualy requires.
It works by first dividing the picture in a lot of smaller files and by precalculating different zoom levels; this first step, the "preparation", is handled by a seperate program (included in the download).
It can take a long time on slow computers, but it only needs to be done once per image. Once this is done, a second program, the ImageBrowser, will allow you to "browse" though the resulting smaller pictures as if they were still one huge picture.
Although it will work with any picture, this program was made with the NASA's Blue Marble pictures of the Earth in mind. You can download prepared version of four of them here, all at 8000*4000 pixels.
What's New in This Release:
· New help system based on Doug Holton's HTMLfield ; output in the PC version is limited to plain text, though the links still works
· Fixed bug where "loading" mention would not be visible on PC
· PC version now provided in zip format (although the Blue Marble pictures are still compressed SIT files)
