Creating Deep Zoom Images through c# code

In this quick post, I will show you the creation of deep zoom images from Image in Azure BLOB. You may come with a requirement where you need to create deep zoom images using code. If you need deep zoom images for Pivot Viewer you can very much create it using several tools available. However you may have to create deep zoom images using code in some scenario. I am going to share code snippet for the same.

Very first you need to include DeepZoomTools dll as a reference in your project.

Add namespace


Next you need to create Container and set the basic properties as below,


Next create list of images you want to convert as deep zoom image. For purpose of this post, I am taking only one image. That image is in Azure Blob. So for that I am giving URL of the Image saved in azure Blob. You can choose image from local storage as well.


In last step you need to create deep zoom images using the create method of CollectorCreator


For reference full source code is as below,

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

string directoryToSaveDeepZoomImages = "D:\\abc";

CollectionCreator collectionCreator = new CollectionCreator();
collectionCreator.TileSize = 256;
collectionCreator.TileFormat = Microsoft.DeepZoomTools.ImageFormat.Png;
collectionCreator.ImageQuality = 1.0;
collectionCreator.TileOverlap = 0;

List<Microsoft.DeepZoomTools.Image> images =
new List<Microsoft.DeepZoomTools.Image>();
images.Add(new Microsoft.DeepZoomTools.Image("azuerbloburlforimage"));

collectionCreator.Create(images, directoryToSaveDeepZoomImages);


In this way you can create deep zoom images. I hope this post was useful. Thanks for reading  Smile
