magnify.js is a tiny and simple-to-use jQuery plugin for creating a nice magnifying glass effect to magnify product images on your E-commerce websites.

How to use it:

1. Load the magnify.css in the header and the jquery.magnify.js at the bottom of the web page, but after jQuery library.

<link href="css/magnify.css" rel="stylesheet">

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.magnify.js"></script>

2. Wrap the small image into a container with the class of 'magnify'. Insert the small image into your web page. The URL to the large image can be placed in the data-magnify-src attribute or passed as an option called "src" during initialization.

<img src="small.jpg" data-magnify-src="large.jpg">

3. Call the .magnify() function on the image selector

$(document).ready(function() {

4. Default options.

$(document).ready(function() {
  speed: 100, // fade in/out speed
  timeout: -1, // timeout for mobile
  src: '', // The URI of the large image that will be shown in the magnifying lens.
  onload: function(){} // callback

5. The destroy method.

var $zoom = $('img').magnify();
// Disable zoom
