Getting started

With Deep Zoom Composer, all it takes is a few simple steps to share your Deep Zoom images with others:

  1. Create a new project.

    For more information, see Create a new project.

  2. Add images to your project.

    For more information, see Add or remove images in a project.

  3. Arrange images into a composition.

    For more information, see the topics under Creating a composition.

  4. Add optional elements such as hotspots, navigation, and reporting.

    For more information, see the topics under Adding interactivity.

  5. Export and publish.

    For more information, see the topics under Exporting a composition.


The first thing you have to do after creating a new Deep Zoom Composer project is add images to work with. Click the Add image button in the upper-right corner of the Import workspace.
