Deep Zoom Image creation with Python

December 10, 2008

Kapil Thangavelu has created a Python script for converting images into DZI format. In addition to Python, you’ll need the Python Imaging Library. See his blog post for more information, along with an analysis of why he chose DZI over other zooming formats.

Needless to say, this is an interesting option for people who need to convert a lot of images, or convert on a server, or who don’t use Windows. DZI is an open format, so hopefully we’ll be seeing many more interesting tools and scripts in the future.
