This was an experiment for potential use in e-Learning courses. So often I’m tasked with fitting a full resolution screen shot into a tiny box and still have the text readable by a user, something that would otherwise be impossible without a zoom (1024×768 images with 12px text aren’t very crisp when you shrink them down to 400×300). New ideas are scary to clients though, so this little Flash piece hasn’t graduated to a full production course yet.
A pie type of loader was thrown in for good measure.
