@avandecreme - sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. You asked why we are using JPG thumbnails instead of the pyramid directly. I'm assuming you are talking about a deepzoom image, and what we found was that the overhead of loading all of the various tiles, etc. was making things way too slow to render. Our users don't often view every image so loading the thumbnails is way more efficient.

Thanks for the answer. Makes sense.
