I thought up a really cool idea for a little javascript widget that would be useful on software web pages.

The idea:
One often wants to put up thumbnail screenshots on a software page.  The typical approach is to make a thumbnail of the page.
Sometimes however the results is too small to see, so instead you'll see a 100% normal zoom of a corner of the image, like so:
mycaps Screenshot - 001 , 12_46_AM , Jul 12 2006.png

So i was thinking it would be nice if, instead of requiring designer to make such a mini corner image - what if you could use a java script on a web page to say: "take this full sized image, and show it in a box of size X by Y, and let the user pan the images with the mouse".

so a user could actually click and drag the image around inside the box.

Does this exist yet? Any javascript coders want to give it a try?
