Hi every One.

Is there a way to zoom in on product images? I have looked everywhere and need help.

when adding the product, have you added the "callout" and the "lightbox" options?

Yeah I'm aware of the call out and light box functions what the client is requesting is to be able to magnify when you hover over the product image.

Thanks anyway.

Sorry if I've misunderstood how you've set yours up. My images do magnify/expand with the size parameters we've set by calling up the alternate image. Both Remo and Jordan have free Zoom add-ons in the marketplace that truly magnify the existing image (I have not tried them with the ecommerce package but don't know why they couldn't be made to do what you want)

Good luck... post your results please

I assume you mean a 'mouse over zoom detail' kind of effect? Did you find an answer or a product in the market place for enabling this?

Can you tell me how you resolved the zoom issue?

Hi TeKno,

I bought the zoom so basically you create a two block system where you add the zoom /magnification block and then add your product below making sure you hide the image. Bit of a nightmare though if the client has more than 30 products.

take a look atwww.www.crownfurniturestore.com...

@TeKnoZiz I resolved this by modifying the product php files and implementing Cloudzoomhttp://www.starplugins.com/cloudzoom...

Hi designaroni

If your question is in reference to TeKnoZiz you would maybe get a quicker reply by messaging directly.

All I did was simply install the zoom plugin from market place and when I added a product I disabled the show thumbnail and image and instead above it I added the zoom to a block and chose the right image for it but this could become a pain if you have many products.
