Photo Safari at Delamar Nevada

Delamar Ghost Town

I love to get away from the Vegas lights whenever I can and go on Photo Safari.  This week I finally made it up to Delamar Nevada.  Delamar is an Ghost Town about 3 hours north of Las Vegas and has been on my list of places to visit for years.

Zoomify, WordPress, Paris Panorama

One thing about blogs that has always made be crazy was the fact that it was hard if not impossible to display large files in such a way that people can view the details of the image. Screen width and image theft are the two reasons most pictures are so hard to see.

As you already might know, starting with Photoshop CS3 you could export your large images to Zoomify and it would automatically tile your image, create your folders and also create your HTML code so viewers could zoom in on your image from your website.

For those of you that do not use Photoshop CS3 and newer you can still use Zoomify since they offer a free stand alone version. You can get that HERE if you need it.

However, the problem up till now has been a way to view Zoomify exports from within WordPress. This is no longer a problem.

Click on the below image to be able to zoom and pan for a closer look.

Paris Panorama

By using the WordPress plugin called “Shadowbox JS” you can configure your Zoomify page to display from within WordPress as easy as cooking a TV Dinner.

You can download it here by clicking this link: http://sivel.net/wordpress/shadowbox-js/

There are other ways you can use Shadowbox JS in your WordPress site however for this post I will stick with using it to display your Zoomify pages.

Yes, I am about to tell you how to do it. Coding and all… However you will need to click continue…
