4 Demos to Create Product Galleries with Zoom feature by jQuery

The jQuery Product Zoom plug-in

The xZoom plug-in which is based on jQuery is useful, particularly for e-commerce websites with product galleries. The plug-in enables zooming a part of the focused image in different views.

For example, you may use the lens option where the focused part of the image will zoom in. Similarly, the zoomed image can be displayed in an output window or in a fancy box and magnified pop-up.

You may use a number of images in product gallery, so a user may first select an image before using the zoom feature. Have a look at the demos and set up instructions below.

Lens view demo

Rather than showing zoomed image in an output window or adjacent div outside of the large image in product gallery, you may use the lens view. In that case, the magnified view of the focused part of the image is displayed in a lens view.

jQuery zoom lens

An example with magnifying popup

In this example, the product image’s magnified view is available in the adjacent div as well as in a pop-up window with the full view. The popup displays as you click the large image in a gallery. Once the popup is displayed with full view of the image, the user may also navigate through the other gallery images by using the right and left arrows:
