At work we'd put together an experimental OpenZoom image of a mountain panorama. Time passed, stuff happened, and the original photo montage was lost. So now the project is how do we get the original back from the eight thousand tiles which comprise the zoomified experiment?
Enter dezoomify.rb, "Stitch Zoomify tiles into a single image (Ruby + ImageMagick)" by henrik. Now because I'd used openzoom and not zoomify, and had the tiles on a local network disk instead of an a webserver, I had to majorly bastardize dezoomify to get it to work. The result isn't pretty and is hardcoded to work with this single project, but because it didwork I'm posting it here. Perhaps in future it will get reworked into something better. :)
