Let’s say we have a 1000x1000px  image and we want to display 400x400px of that image in a web browser. I want the user to be able to use their mouse cursor to “scan around” the image and view different pieces of it.   Write a script using jQuery that will allow the user to do that.

Use the jQuery UI plugin called Draggable:

Create a container that is the veiwport size that you want. Put the full-sized image inside that container and set the container to have overflow: hidden. Then, using jQuery, select the image and add $.draggable().
