I have scanned a region of my slide and created a Deep Zoom image. How can I share that image with a colleague via email?


Deep Zoom images can be very large. As such, it is unlikely you can share them via email due to the size restrictions of email servers and email clients. However, you can create a compressed (ZIP) file of a Deep Zoom image that can be shared via file sharing services like Dropbox, Google Drive, or Microsoft's OneDrive.

To create a compressed (zipped) file you can share...

  1. Locate your Deep Zoom image folder. It is located in the scan folder and is named Deepzoom-filtername (where filtername is the name of the filter used or unfiltered if no filter was used). Refer to Job Folder Structure (uScope Navigator v4.0-v4.3) for information about the scan folder structure.
  2. Click the Deepzoom folder once to select it.
  3. Right-Click the Deepzoom folder to open the context menu.
  4. In the context menu, hover the mouse pointer over Send to and select Compressed (zipped) folder to create a zip file of the Deep Zoom image.

Once the ZIP file has been created, you may copy it to your favorite file sharing service and send a share link to your colleagues.

Be sure to view the Deep Zoom image using uScope Navigator before creating the compressed (zipped) file. Several necessary files are created in the Deep Zoom folder when you initially view the Deep Zoom image. Be certain that the MIDZ.HTML file is there.

To unzip the compressed file for viewing...

  1. Copy the ZIP file to a folder on your computer.
  2. Right-Click the ZIP file and select Extract All... from the context menu.
  3. When presented with the Extract Files dialog, you may select the folder where you wish the Deep Zoom image files to be stored. Click the Extract button to begin extracting the compressed files.
  4. Once the Deep Zoom image files are extracted, browse to the extracted folder and Right-Click the MIDZ.HTML file (this is the Deep Zoom image viewer).
  5. In the context menu, hover the mouse pointer over Open with and select Microsoft Edge.
