If any of you have tried doing an Image search in either Live or Google the way it presents the results can be rather dull, just a page full of images, so I thought as I usually do… isn’t there a better way to visualise this? – and Silverlight came to the rescue.
A friend of mine mentioned a plugin called CoolIris which I thought looked amazing so I decided to see if I could achieve the same type of visualisation in Silverlight.
So far its going well, as you can see above we have the same wall effect though just using a sample image; once I have the search sorted (at the moment using the Live Search SDK) and movement this will look amazing.
For those interested I will be writing about this in the next 2 StudentZine newsletter articles.
