Each image is offered two ways: as a static image, and as a magnified image.

Static Images

Static images are what you are used to viewing on the web. Each static image is a still picture. Below each picture you will find a legend which tells you what each label on the image represents.

Magnified Views (via Quicktime VR)

Magnified views allow you to zoom in and out on images. They also allow you to display where the image labeling is using hotspots.

Zoom In

To zoom in, press and hold the plus sign in the gray bar at the bottom of the quicktime frame, or move your mouse over the quicktime movie and hold down the shift key on your keyboard.

While you are zoomed, you may want to drag the image so you can see other parts of the movie.

Drag Zoomed Object

To drag a zoomed image, press the drag sign in the gray bar at the bottom of the quicktime frame or press and hold the option key on your keyboard. While over the qucktime movie your mouse cursor will turn into a drag icon. While holding down the mouse button, move the mouse to drag the object.

Zoom Out

To zoom out while the mouse cursor is over the movie, use the minus sign in the grey bar, or press the control key on your keyboard.


Show Hospots

To view where all of the labeling is on an image, or it's hotspots, press the question mark in the gray bar. Outlines will show up around all of the labeling. You may do this at any magnification level.

When your cursor is over a hotspot, whether you enable viewing hotspot boundaries or not, you will see the labeling for that hotspot in they grey bar at the bottom of the page. You can do this at any magnification level.
