Hi there, I've just come across openseadragon and seems fantastic and what I'm looking for. Does it have the ability to zoom in a targeted area while keeping the entire image in place?
Apologies for the grammar, just rolled out of bed!

@Dephora Not sure what you mean by "keeping the entire image in place".

@avandecreme Similar to one of the jquery magnifier plugins which creates a box on the image and shows a zoomed in portion of that image. I'm looking for the same deal with openseadragon but I would like to be able to use that box to zoom in as deep as required without zooming the entire image
Similar to having a magnifying glass while looking at an image, focus on a certain area while being able to see the big picture around it

Got it. No, it is not supported out of the box.

Do you plan to have your main image zoomable as well? Or just have the box to zoom?

Ok, I think that could be a new plugin if you are up to implement it.
