I'm sorry my first time even hearing about DZI was for that smithsonian project haha. What do you mean by grabbing level 7? Would that just be requesting like foo_tiles/7/0_0.jpg or something? All these images (144) of them start at 9 and there's 4 in /9

@crswll Exactly. Whichever level has only one tile; usually around level 7. Just a suggestion as an alternate to making fresh thumbnails.

Ah, the lowest I have for all of these images is 9 and there's 4 images at that level. I'll see if I can adjust the script to go a little lower next time I run them all. Thanks for that tip, such a simple solution.

Cool.
They'll all be slightly different sizes (because of aspect ratios), but you should be able to take care of that with CSS.

yeah definitely, background-image: cover; should make that simple.

And yeah, having the largest level that has only one tile is good for the actual viewing as well, since it means the first thing people will see is a complete image and not just one corner.
Indeed :-)
