High-def zooming on images in an Android app?

Hello Android Experts,

I was wondering if the Deep-Zoom feature in Microsoft is available for Android O/S on phones and tablets, like from the following site:
Microsoft Deep-Zoom Feature

NOTE:  Check out the pic 3rd from the bottom, mountain with waterfall.

I'm not quite sure how Android names this functionality, if available.

Thank you.

As far as I know, everyone else just calls it zoom. There's nothing special about the DeepZoom, other than the controls that make the process smooth. You can't zoom in any more than the max resolution of the picture will allow, and you can only zoom out until the whole picture is on screen.

If you had the waterfall picture on your tablet, you could zoom out until you could see the whole thing, and then zoom in as far as you like - beyond, in fact, what the DeepZoom allows, so you can see individual pixels.

Cheers,
LHerrou

Ok, maybe I mis-spoke (or mis-typed).  I did mean to say the 'smooth' part of the zooming without the lag or wait time for hi-res images.

You might try the QuickPic app, it is has some nice features and the zooming is usually smoother than the native Android galleries:
