Had nothing much to do on tuesday so did this small AJAX based web album with zooming and background loading.
Its not using any backend rightnow ,everything is coded in just one page.
But it provides instant zooming with background fetching.So gives a nice interface where you need not wait for images to get downloaded.
That part goes in background.
I assume many web albums like Flickr and Picasa web album are using the same trick.
Though,it can be made even better by using GD library as backend.
But you see, i am a bit busy
Anywayz you can visit it here.
Will keep on working this !
