Microsoft has created a service called Zoom.it, a free web tool for viewing and sharing high-resolution photos.
Zoom.it created by people from Microsoft Live Labs branches, and is based on some earlier ventures (Seadragon) whose role was similar – zoom, preview images on the web.
Zoom.it works extremely simple, you just put the link to an image or text in the box on the official site tools (http://zoom.it/). If you’re used to typing their own parameters in the address bar, you can do so by adding http://zoom.it/?url = front of the picture or page you want to process in this program.
Zoom.it is able to modify any image on the web, and the output is converted to a Deep Zoom Image (DHS), in addition to standard image formats (BMP, JPG, GIF …), Zoom.it has support for PDF documents, SVG files.
It should be noted that when converting a PDF document Zoom.it process only the first page, while all other parameters must be added at the end of the URL to convert, and that there is no support for Flash.
Besides this, there is an application that is intended for use on mobile devices with touchscreen option.
Development of Live Labs is a tool implemented in Application Programming Interface (API), so users can get it, if you know how, improve.
