Anyone who operates an online store always faces a common dilema. How do we provide the best view of our products? Traditionally shopping carts allow you to upload a thumbnail and larger view image. Some allow for multiple detail images and perhaps even a slideshow. But let’s say you have something highly detailed and wish to provide a simple yet elegant way to allow your shoppers to view your products in high detail by just mousing over the image. A fantastic zoom utility program that plugs into most popular shopping cart systems can do just that.
The zoom utility allows for the shopper to simply mouse over your product images and immediately a popover window appears with the zoomed effect mirroring the area of the image their mouse is currently over. The shopper can move the mouse around and view different areas of the image and product. The shopper also has the ability to click on the image and view a larger high definition version of the product image which closes easily with a click of the mouse.
Here’s examples. Picture one shows a typical product image:
