Minimalist Image Magnifying Effect With jQuery - zmagnifier.js

zmagnifier.js is a super tiny and easy-to-use jQuery plugin which creates a realistic magnifying glass effect for quick image zooming on mouse hover.

How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery zmagnifier.js plugin after you've loaded jQuery JavaScript library.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="zmagnifier.js"></script>

2. Insert an image into the webpage.

<div class="zwrap">
  <img class="zimg" src="1.jpg">

3. The required CSS styles for the magnifying glass effect. Note that you must add the large image as a background to the magnifier.

.zmagnifier {
  border-radius: 50%;
  position: absolute;
  left: 0;
  top: 0;
  display: none;
  background-image: url(larget.jpg);
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  cursor: none;
  box-shadow: 0 0 0 7px rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.8), 0 0 7px 7px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3), inset 0 0 40px 2px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3);

.zwrap {
  width: 300px;
  height: 400px;
