TweakTown Image Zooming goes live - get a closer look!

Improving the user experience
By: Cameron Wilmot | TweakTown News | Posted: Jul 16, 2011 7:37 pm

In our continuous effort to improve your experience at TweakTown, today we introduce a newly rolled out feature called "Image Zooming".


Using the wonderful power and bliss of jQuery, JavaScript and CSS, when you move your mouse over one of our content images, you will see an enlarged version of the image allowing you to get a closer, more detailed view.


The enlarged version of the image will not display instantly, as it still has to download, but it should load relatively quick (depending on your connection, of course) thanks to our use of Content Delivery Network (CDN) servers around the world. The good news is that it works in all the popular web browsers; you'll just need to make sure you have JavaScript enabled or else it will not work.




Give it a try right now! Just move your mouse over the image above.


If you want to implement it for your website or learn more about the great technology behind it, visit Alen Grakalic's page over at CSS Globe where you can learn more about his "Image Preview" method. Thanks Alen for the fantastic script and keep up the great work!
