Zoom.it

Every once in a while you find a site that really makes you say Ooooh and Ahhhh.  Zoom.it is one of those sites.  All you have to do is copy and paste a URL of an image and it will upload it to the website.  You can then view the picture full screen and zoom into the image getting a better view of certain areas.

I used to teach the Renaissance and we would always examine the art from that time period.  I would always point out certain aspects of the paintings.  Zoom.it would have been a great addition to that curriculum.  If you are ever examining a picture, this site is a must.

You can also embed the utility into a blog or website, as seen below.

  1. I saw this on Go2Web but hadn't had a chance to play with it. Very cool tool! Perfect for art teachers, or any time you are using primary sources that you wished were full screen. Awesome!
