xZoom is a responsive, touch-friendly jQuery zoom gallery plugin designed for e-commerce websites that enable you to generate a pretty nice product gallery with thumbnail navigation and smooth image zoom support. Compatible with jQuery Fancybox and Magnific Popup plugins. Licensed under the Apache License 2.0.

How to use it:

1. Add the following required JavaScript and CSS files to the webpage.

<!-- JQUERY -->
<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>

<!-- CSS STYLE-->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/xzoom.css">

<script src="js/xzoom.min.js"></script>

2. Add the xzoom markup to your webpage as shown below. You can add more or less images to xzoom, this example shows how it works with 4 images.

  • xoriginal - the path to the big image, that will be used as zoomed image in zoom.
  • xpreview - optional, but when it is set up, this attribute used as the medium preview image, while the src attribute in this case will be used as the small thumbnail image. If this attribute is not set up, then src attribute will be used as the medium preview image.
  • xtitle - text string that will be used as caption and will be shown in zoom output window inside "div" container with titleClass. If this attribute is not used then xZoom will use regular title attribute of the image.
<img class="xzoom" src="path/to/preview_image_01.jpg" xoriginal="path/to/original_image_01.jpg" />

<div class="xzoom-thumbs">
  <a href="path/to/original_image_01.jpg">
    <img class="xzoom-gallery" width="80" src="path/to/thumbs_image_01.jpg"  xpreview="path/to/preview_image_01.jpg">
  <a href="path/to/original_image_02.jpg">
    <img class="xzoom-gallery" width="80" src="path/to/preview_image_02.jpg">
  <a href="path/to/original_image_03.jpg">
    <img class="xzoom-gallery" width="80" src="path/to/preview_image_03.jpg">
  <a href="path/to/original_image_04.jpg">

5. API methods.

  • xappend(jQuery_object) - this function can add new thumbnail to current xZoom instance. It will take as parameter 1, object that must be an image and passed as jQuery object.
  • gallery() - this function can be used for integration with gallery plugins, like "FancyBox" or "Magnific Popup", it returns an object with the next properties: index (current selected thumbnail. Starting from 0), ogallery (array of paths to original big images) and cgallery (array of paths to original big images. Order begins from current index)

6. Events.

// Function that is called on initialization step, that is binding an event "mouseenter" to the passed jQuery object "element" which is originnaly a main source image.
//  And giving a function that need to be called when event will be triggered "instance.openzoom".
instance.eventopen = function(element) {
  element.bind('mouseenter', instance.openzoom);

// Function that is called on the step when it is needed to bind an event to the element on which the leaving will be tracked.
instance.eventleave = function(element) {
  element.bind('mouseleave', instance.closezoom);

// Function that is called on the step when it is needed to bind an event to the element on which the moving will be tracked.
instance.eventmove = function(element) {
  element.bind('mousemove', instance.movezoom);

// Function that is called on the step when it is needed to bind an event to the element on which the scrolling for scale will be tracked.
instance.eventscroll = function(element) {
  element.bind('mousewheel DOMMouseScroll', instance.xscroll);

// Function that is called on the step when it is needed to bind an event to the element on which the click will be tracked.
instance.eventclick = function(element) {
  element.bind('click', function(event) {

// Function to open zoom, uses event.pageX and event.pageY as start location of lens.

// Has no parameters, and simply closing the zoom.

// This function also uses event.pageX and event.pageY to be able to provide movement of lens on the zoom.

// This function is adapted for "mousewheel", "DOMMouseScroll" events and tested, and works fine on all major browsers. 
// But if you are using some custom events where you will call this function directly then you can use event.xdelta as delta with value 0 or 1 to tell the direction of scaling by 5% from each call, or event.xscale for exact scale with value from -1 to 1 (which means -100% to 100%) to set up exact scale of the zoom as you need.

// Function that will delete original instance.event* functions by replacing them with blank functions and unbind default events on objects. 
// It can help you to clear default mouse binding events that xzoom already setup.

// Function that will restore original instance.event* functions.
