Zoom Addon

The Zoom Addon for Envira Gallery will easily allow you to give your lightbox images a zoom effect on hover or by a simple click from your users. We’ll walk you through how to set up your gallery lightbox images to allow the zoom on hover (or by click) when your visitors view your lightbox images.

Please follow our instructions on how to install and activate addons.

In this instance, you’ll be activating the Envira Zoom Addon.

Your first step is to create a new gallery or edit an existing one. You can follow along with our documentation for creating your first gallery.

Next, navigate to the Zoom tab and check the box to Enable Gallery Zoom Functionality?

Click on the Zoom tab to begin setting up the options for the Zoom Addon

Then continue to set up the remaining options for your zoom settings.

Finally, click Publish or Update on your gallery to save the changes.

See the demo!

Would you like to add the zoom effect on your gallery images? Take a look at our CSS tutorial on How to Zoom Thumbnail Images on Hover.

A: The original image size must be large enough to support zoom.

For example, if the image is displayed at 500 x 500 pixels in lightbox view and the original image uploaded is 500 x 500 pixels, when using zoom there will be no noticeable zoom effect on the image.

However, if the image is displayed at 500 x 500 pixels in lightbox view and the original image uploaded is 1000 x 1000 pixels, when using zoom the image will be magnified by 2x.

These same principles are applied if zoom is enabled for the gallery view.
