Responsive Image Magnifier & Inner Zoom Plugin - magnificent.js

magnificent.js is a simple, smooth, responsive jQuery image zoom plugin that provides two modes to magnify or zoom in on an image:

  • Mode 1: Inner Zoom. Shows your image in a larger size on hover.
  • Mode 2: Outer Zoom. Shows a magnifier glass effect to display specific part of the image.
  • Also supports scroll to zoom with mouse wheel in both modes.
