Video tutorial

Multiple images

Swapping between many images is already a standard feature in Magic Thumb. 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 Magic Thumb options page.
  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.

To zoom some images and spin others on your product page, you can install both Magic Thumb and Magic 360.

  1. Install the Magento module for Magic Thumb.
  2. Install the Magento module for Magic 360.
  3. Create product as normal. Click 'Save and Continue Edit'. A new section 'Magic360 Images' will appear at the bottom of the left hand navigation.
  4. Upload zoom images via 'Images' section. Upload 360 spin images via 'Magic360 Images' section (screenshot - ).


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:
    "MagicThumb_Message","Write your message here"
