IIIF for image viewing

It seems like image rendering and interoperability could be improved by using IIIF and a viewer like Mirador or UV, especially in a future cloud-based version of Tropy. It’s possible to run an image server locally, or to meet lower levels of the IIIF prezi spec without a full image server. v3.0 of the API will also introduce support for A/V media. Just something to keep in mind!

It would be incredibly cool if we could simply paste in a IIIF manifest URL and get it in Tropy. So much great content out there, locked into completely unusable online viewers.
