Watch the video to see how Magic Touch™ works!
The first visitor to the page triggers Magic Touch™ to fetch and prepare your large image for zooming. Hundreds of small images (called "tiles") are created to allow the incredibly fast and deep zoom. It takes 12 seconds on average to prepare the very first zoom, then all future zooms load within 1 second.
We aim for Magic Touch™ to be available 100% of the time and we commit to providing it 99.9% of the time (see the terms and conditions). Our performance is directly related to the uptime that AWS provides. The AWS goal is to be "indistinguishable from perfect", although on the rare occasion downtime has occurred.
Even if Magic Touch™ goes down, your images will still be served, thanks to the way it references images. Your server will serve them instead of AWS (the only difference is that the zoom won't work).
Paid plans have these extra features:
- Serve zooms over SSL (secure connections).
- Personalise your zooms by adding your own logo.
- Protect your images with a watermark.
The Free Plan allows 10,000 branded zooms per month. The Magic Touch™ logo is shown in the top right corner. If you exceed 10,000 zooms, Magic Touch will stop working. If you need more than 10,000 zooms, you can buy zooms.
After you add Magic Touch™ to your ecommerce store, your conversions (the percentage of visitors that buy something) should increase. Measure it yourself by doing an A/B split test on your website - compare a page with Magic Touch™ versus a page without it. Then tell us your results!
Zooming into an image gives such incredible detail to the user that it boosts their confidence in the quality of your products. Overcoming quality concerns is a big factor in making sales online. Magic Touch™ works like Google Maps and Yahoo Maps - people are familiar with these zoom features. Try it on your site.
Magic Touch™ works in the following browsers:
- Internet Explorer 6+
Q What image formats are supported?
A You can use JPEG and PNG images.
Q How do I update a cached image in Magic Touch™?
A Magic Touch™ caches images to serve them quickly. If you change an image, there are 4 ways to update it:
- Find the image in your admin area and delete it.
- Change the image file name e.g. bike.jpg to bike2.jpg.
- Change the width or height of the small image. For example, change this:
<a href="big.jpg"><img src="small.jpg" width="250" height ="166"></a>to this:<a href="big.jpg"><img src="small.jpg" width="249" height ="166"></a>
- Add GET parameters to the images URLs. For example, change this:
<a class="MagicTouch" href="big.jpg"><img src="small.jpg" width="250" height ="166"></a>to this:<a class="MagicTouch" href="big.jpg?123"><img src="small.jpg?123" width="250" height ="166"></a>
