It starts zoomed out with the whole image showing. A tap will zoom in about 25% each time until fully zoomed in (pixel match to display). The idea is that the image will zoom from the center instead of from the top/left. No transition effects are currently used.
At each size, the user can scroll around the entire image. (It would actually be best to zoom around what is currently visible, but that is easy once I figure out the other piece.)
The issue is that if viewing a very wide panorama, then jumping to the left side isn’t very appealing.
Currently I do delete and recreate the scroller for each zoom, it just didn’t work right with the image centered in the group.
