TJPzoom – Open Source Image Magnifier in Javascript

Posted · Category: CC License, Popup

Few days ago, one of our readers asked if there is any free image magnifier script available on the internet. And then I have done some research and found this nice script. TJPzoom is an open source image magnifier that is written in JavaScript / DOM. If you move your mouse over the picture, you can see a little zoom window with a magnified version of a part of the picture in it.

The zoom ratio will be increased and decreased if you click and drag upwards/downwards your mouse. The zoom window will be increased and decreased if you click and drag to the right/left your mouse as well. Have you found any open source image magnifier that you would like to share with us too?


Requirements: Internet Explorer 6+, Firefox 2, Opera, Safari 2, Konqueror 3.5.6

    Some related ones are the Brain Maps API – very much like ‘zoomify’ which is built in to Photoshop CS3, only it’s lightweight javascript instead of Flash and so you can customize the look/feel of it and don’t have to live with the logo (like Zoomify).

    FancyZoom 1.0 – Simple 1 zoom level, not unlike just using lightbox. (http://www.cabel.name/2008/02/fancyzoom-10.html)

  • We make a JavaScript image zoom tool called Magic Zoom.

    As the user hovers over the small image, a zoomed image appears to the size. It’s easy for users and it’s easy to install. It is free for non-commercial use and is £25 for a commercial license.

    We also make a tool called Magic Magnify that uses Flash to zoom into the image. It’s also free for non-commercial use.

  • I’ve seen this before.
