Even if you do not have a IIIF server at your disposal, you can still use
pb-facsimile to display static images hosted either in your local TEI Publisher instance or on an external webserver. Key is to set the attribute
pb-facsimile and provide the correct base URI for resolving image links. For an example, we may use the static images used by TEI Publisher on the main start page (e.g.
playground.png). Those are stored in the
data collection of your local TEI Publisher installation and you could simply add your own images there (or into a subcollection).
pb-facsimile, you just need to set
type="image" and change the base URI to point to the root of your TEI Publisher install:
<pb-facsimile type="image" base-uri="http://localhost:8080/exist/apps/tei-publisher/" default-zoom-level="0" show-navigation-control="show-navigation-control"> </pb-facsimile>
Within your ODD transformation, you could then output a
pb-facs-link wherever you want to reference an image, e.g.:
This does not differ from using IIIF - just that images will be resolved statically against the base URI instead of going through the IIIF protocol.
pb-facsimile will still allow you to zoom into the image and pan it with the mouse.
For sure, images can be hosted anywhere and do not need to be stored on TEI Publisher. Just change the
base-uri to point to the base URL you want to retrieve images from.
