Ruby + ImageMagick script to stitch Zoomify Viewer tiles into a single image at the maximum zoom level.
Give the URL of a page that contains the Zoomify Flash viewer, e.g.:
The file would end up in
/tmp/zoomified-0.0.jpg on Mac/*UX and
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\zoomified-0.0.jpg on Windows. (The script has yet to be confirmed to work on Windows.)
You can give multiple URLs as separate arguments:
./dezoomify.rb 'http://collections.frick.org/CUS.18.zoomobject._580$7286*1484740' 'http://collections.frick.org/CUS.18.zoomobject._1106$8983*1484996' 'http://collections.frick.org/CUS.18.zoomobject._1105$7286*1516394'
The files would end up in
/tmp/zoomified-2.0.jpg or the equivalent Windows directory.
The first number in the output filename reflects the ordinal of the provided URL. The second number is used if a single URL contains multiple Zoomify viewers.
Note that filenames do not increment from run to run, so beware of overwriting previously dezoomified files.
If you're on OS X, each file will be revealed in the Finder as download and stitching is completed.
