Irisize your pictures

irisize logVirtual Iris is a Santa Monica, California based company that is making pictures more interactive - and exciting.

ImageInteractive controls can be added to any picture so that viewers can zoom in and out of pictures, create 3D effects using a sequence of pictures, or create a compact gallery with a clever popup mouseover.

The Ajax/ Javascript website has Lightbox type features (Lightbox is a popular Javascript used to overlay images on web pages).

At the Virtual Iris website, pictures can be “Irisized” by uploading the images and going through a sequence of steps to place controls on the picture such as zoom, etc. Finally the picture can be “output”, which generates a snippet of code that the user can place on their blog, website or social networking site, such as Myspace.

The Irisize product can be useful for ecommerce merchants who want to maximize the number of product pictures they can show on a page, while providing a higher level of detail for each picture.

We could not get the zoom controls to work when we embedded the picture into our website, but we were able to get a pointer to the picture on the Irisize website. Click on the picture on the left to see the interactive photo with controls.

Virtual Iris is expected to present at the VentureNet Conference in Costa Mesa, on October 5th, 2007.
