Image Magnification in Wordpress

Posted on 7.01.2013

Wordpress isn't really designed for use by e-commerce websites, but Internet retailers are known to have weblogs (and regularly choose Wordpress), so why not have some popular product page features ported over to Wordpress?

Yith, which provides a collection of Wordpress themes, has just released the Yith WooCommerce Zoom Magnifier, a Wordpress plugin that adds a cool zoom effect to product images. Once installed and activated, any time a user hovers their mouse over the image, the user will see an close up of the image to the right of the original.

There are quite a few image zoom plugins in the Wordpress repository currently. Two actually have similar functionality to the Yith WooCommerce Zoom Magnifier and are worth checking out including the Nextend Image Magnifier, and the Super Zoom Gallery.
