I often create ultra-wide images on my iPhone (stitched together with Pano.app), and I'm looking for user experience examples to display them on a website. These are not spherical or 360º images (which many of the display tools seem to focus on).
A typical pano image aspect ratio (Gerding Theater, Portland, Oregon):
I've been using Tumblr to post photos to, because it's easy. Their ultra-wide image handling & user experience leaves much to be desired. I'd love to empower users to really get immersed in the images - either full-width or zoomed in. It wouldn't have to animate.
Have you seen:
- Any web services that handle ultra-wide images well?
- HTML only (no flash)
- Any good iOS-based UX app examples?
- Any good Wordpress photography themes that handle this use case well?
- Any other good web-based examples?
I don't mind rolling my own solution; I'm trying to think outside the box.
Got any suggestions, or examples that blew you away? Would love any links or ideas.
