    Thanks for the mention of Zoomorama ! We appreciate it. Note that when your authoring friend allows for image download then a little arrow appears between the +/- of the cursor that brings out a “download” button for the image you are hovering on.

    BTW we just filled for US patent on that cursor. Lots of potential for e-commerce sites. More about that in September. And a Mac/Linux version of Zoomcreator for early 2009

    Happy that you like it.
