Does anyone have scripts for zooming in and out on a photo?  I got 
animationEngine, but I don't see anything there that will help me.  I'm 
hoping it can be fairly smooth.

Use case: high quality "political world map" (includes states/cities)  
zoom in on specific countries, even states.

the "Functional Spec" would go something like this:

a) preset  percentage to scale up with a nice smooth magnification 
action over time (that's why I was hoping to use animation engine as 
Malte has the "easing" thing wired", then click to shrink down to the 

b) the "magnification" UX would  shift the center of the view to the 
center of the card for the scaled up part.  And "back down" moves the 
image to it's original location.

c) once the above is working then we can also pass a percentage from a 
pull down (depends on context whether we want a fixed amt or offer a 
menu of enlargement choices first.

Now... I could build this myself, but I thought why reinvent the 
wheel... has anyone else done anything along these lines? If not all the 
above requirements, at least the zoom in and out part?
