Multiple images

Swapping between many images is already a standard feature in Magic Magnify™. But if you have lots of images, the page can look complicated.

Make your thumbnails look slick and organised with Magic Scroll™ for Magento. It neatly contains the images adds arrows to slide between them. Example:

  1. Simply activate Magic Scroll™ on the Magento options page (screenshot).
  2. To remove the "Please upgrade" text, buy a license and overwrite the /skin/frontend/[your_interface]/[your_theme]/js/magicscroll.js file with that from your licensed version.


You can change the language of the message and loading text like so:

  1. Find the locale folder for the language you wish to change e.g. /app/locale/en_US.
  2. Open the file Mage_Api.csv into the editor and insert these lines at the and of the file:

    "MagicMagnify_Message","Write your message here"

    "MagicMagnify_LoadingText","Write your message here"

  3. Continue these steps for each locale you wish to change.

Magnify into your product images on hover / mouseover to show beautiful detail in your product. This smooth effect uses Flash to create a round magnifying glass which can be customised in size. Try scrolling your mousewheel while hovering and change the magnifier size.

There are many customisations available in your Magento admin area. It's easy to change the settings and make it look exactly how you want it.

If you want it to work on iPad and iPhone, then get the next version up: Magic Magnify Plus™.
