Deep Zoom support in HD View tools

There are two main tools for converting a large image into the HD View format.  They are hdmake, a command line application, and the HD View Photoshop plugin.  The HD View format is very similar to the Deep Zoom format.  So, we are pleased to announce that we have added Silverlight Deep Zoom capabilities to our latest release of these two tools.  In either tool you can now indicate Deep Zoom output and it will generate the image tiles, Silverlight files, and an example web page.  That means that our Photoshop plug-in gives you capabilities comparable to the Zoomify export built into CS3.  See this blog post for a take on Deep Zoom’s advantages over Zoomify.
