Hi guys, hoping that someone here might be able to help.

My festival group has lost the original source image used in the zoom image on the link below. I can't figure out how to obtain the original image that is being used, only really low quality screenshots. Would anyone here be able to help me access the original image used?

Thankyou in advance!
Glenn

Glenn,

Thanks for reaching out. I checked and the underlying ID for your image is: http://zoomhub.net/v1/content/iSxz
The original source image is http://images.leyportal.co.uk/Caledonia%20B&W%202013%20v02-test3.PNG but as you said, the link is dead.

In order to restore it, you’d have to stitch back the tiles that Zoom.it generated:

Tiles:
I am not aware of any program that does this, but there are many scripts/programs out there that do the original tile generation: https://openseadragon.github.io/examples/creating-zooming-images/ You could adapt one of those to do the reverse.

Let me know how it goes and if you need help, I am available as a consultant.

Cheers,
Daniel

Haha, just saw this. If you still feel so inclined: https://paypal.me/gasi :)

FWIW, ZoomHub is slowly but surely coming back (just enabled uploads yesterday), so this would support its future development.
