Microsoft Releases Seadragon – High Resolution Photo Zoom Sharing Service

Microsoft’s Seadragon can share any image on the web as a zoomable photo. Point Seadragon at any image you’ve got on the web, and you’ve got a zoomable viewer. Share the link on Facebook, Twitter, or through email or IM. Or embed it directly on your blog, eBay listing or virtually any site.
Seadragon allows you to share virtually any size image on the web, whether it is a five, ten or two hundred megapixels. The embedded viewer adjusts dynamically to the layout of your page, or can be customized to a specific size with just a quick change to a script size, so now any size image fits perfectly on your site. And because Seadragon uses a dual-mode Silverlight & AJAX control, it works on virtually any browser–automatically using Silverlight to provide a smoother experience and better performance when available, and defaulting to a scripted viewer when it is not.
