I'm using Calibre viewer for the quick check of the ePub and it works ok, but I wonder is there some reader that handles pictures like Mobipocket Reader?

With mobi, if the picture (map) is bigger than the screen area, I can zoom it and pan around - very handy for maps especially.
It would be nice to have ePub reader also with zooming capability.

iBooks can zoom on an iPad. What platform do you want it for?

I would try Azardi or perhaps Calibre.

I am using Calibre, but the big maps are unzoomable. Maybe I have not found the right setting?

I may have been wrong about Calibre, my memory isn't always the best, however Azardi will open a new window to display the map in and it will be full size. The window may need to be scrolled I suppose depending on the screen size and resolution.

Thanks, I'll give it a try sometime. That's exactly what I want - to quickly check map's quality without extracting it from ePub.
Weird that only one developer gives it a thought.

The calibre viewer can open an image in a separate window and allows zooming there. Right click on the image and select "View image..."
