Smooth Javascript Image Zooming For Your Web Pages

Posted · Category: Gallery, License Free

FancyZoom is designed to view full-size photos and images inline without requiring a separate web page load. It is providing a smooth, clean, truly Mac-like effect, almost like it’s a function of Safari itself. FancyZoom has the following features that makes it different to other popular modal box galleries, e.g.Lightbox. FancyZoom is totally free for your non-commercial website.

  • Focused on the smoothest, most polished zooming animation possible
  • Automatically scales images from any image link, with no HTML changes
  • Preloads full-size images in the background on link mouseover
  • No resource-heavy Javascript libraries — 100% coded from scratch to zoom
  • Draws a nice drop shadow under the full-size image to offset it from the page
  • Uses Safari 3’s “box-shadow” feature to draw the drop shadow natively, no images required


Requirements: Safari, Firefox, IE7, and IE6
