One of the major requests we receive from users is to improve the image viewer on WorldVitalRecords.com. The purpose of the viewer is to display images from our databases. These images come primarily from newspapers, but also from additional images from documents and books. We have been listening to your feedback and are excited to announce that we have launched some enhancements to the viewer.
Here are some of the improved features:
1. Display of images. The width of the images has been fixed so they do not display off the screen. Improved zoom feature.
2. Enhanced zoom features allow the viewer to see the specific part of the image they want to view.
3. The new image viewer is based on Adobe flash/flex technology, which will eliminate java errors and many compatibility problems.
4. Improved printing. In the past, the image viewer would print the entire image. Now, individuals have the option of printing the entire image, or simply the current viewable section of the image.
