1. Add your image to the zoom area following the html structure like this:

<div class="wraper">
  <div class="zoom_area">
    <div class="preview">
      <img src="large.jpg" alt="">

2. Put the latest version of jQuery library and the jQuery magnify_glass plugin's script at the bottom of the webpage.

<script src="//"></script>
<script async defer src="js/magnify_glass.js"></script>

3. Add the following required CSS styles to the webpage.

.wraper {
  overflow: hidden;
  width: 600px;
  height: 600px;

.zoom_area {
  position: relative;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;

.zoom_area .preview {
  width: 80%;
  margin: 0 auto;

.zoom_area .preview img {
  max-width: 100%;
  -webkit-border-radius: 4px;
  border-radius: 4px;
  -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 25px #c9ba12;
