Thanks for the tip. I tested the demos, and the world map never showed up when I zoomed
into it. Te others worked, but not as fast as Zoomify. Besides I may have problems
installing the server at my web hotel I guess?
But maybe if I get some big clients with their own server?

Interesting. I dl'ed it and will test it. I usually don't have problems opening files in
PS, but sometimes in AcDSee, which I also use for some simple image adjustments.

Very nice :)
But where are all the people? I looked around, but couldn't find a single person on any
of all those roof tops? I guess I didn't check all of them... ;)
