Squarespace is brilliant at making beautiful websites without knowing how to code. It has everything the small business owner needs to quickly create a professional looking website. However, some useful website features are missing, such as image zoom.

Magic Zoom solves the problem of showing beautiful big images on Squarespace websites, by zooming into images on hover. It's a smooth experience and a real WOW factor for visitors who get to see your images in much higher quality.

It's a JavaScript image zoom, which works with or without jQuery, so it'll work perfectly on any website. It's been refined for mobile devices so that you get a great experience when browsing images on iPhones, iPads and other mobile screens.

Easy to install, this image zoom viewer is used on hundreds of Squarespace websites. Join the community - download Magic Zoom today and give your images some love!

FAQ

  1. Can I use Google Drive to host JS & CSS files?

    No, it's not possible to use Google Drive to host JS & CSS files because Google Drive loads files in the preview window.

    To use Magic Zoom, the JS & CSS files need to be loaded in the raw format. Please use Dropbox instead of Google Drive.

    It's free to create a Dropbox account and you'll receive 2 GB of storage.

  2. Uploading files in Squarespace 7.1

    Squarespace 7.1 doesn't allow SFTP or custom file hosting so you must upload the 3 files (magiczoom.css, magiczoom.js, magic-squarespace.js) to a server and reference them in your Header section.

    (If you do not have access to a server, internet search "free web space". There are lots of free hosting options available. You can even use Dropbox.)

    Tip: to find url reference in Dropbox: Highlight file > Right click > Select 'Copy public link'. Your Dropbox urls will look like this. Remember to change /PUBLIC-URL/ in your urls.

    <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/PUBLIC-URL/magiczoom.css?raw=1"/>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/PUBLIC-URL/magiczoom.js?raw=1"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/PUBLIC-URL/magic-squarespace.js?tool=MagicZoomPlus"></script>

The best service and everything I needed for £29 I feel like I robbed them 😂! I'm London's Leading Startup Mentor and I urgently needed a zoom feature for my landing page on Squarespace website to showcase the content of my course with zoom eg guides/blueprints, it's been a time waste trying to find solutions and don't look good after putting code in.

Then I found Magictoolbox via Google search had great reviews and I tried to test but needed for images not gallery as mentioned, so I got in touch. Omg the service was amazing, as I couldn't figure something out. They did it all and I had not even purchased but a mere trial, imagine amazing people treating me like I treat others, as if they cared and it's not alot to invest £29 😉 so appreciated many would ask for alot more for this service and tool!!

Please note... I did one small thing, purchase and followed 1 step after purchase, as they had done everything for me in the trial and I loved it and service so much I had to buy!!! Yes, I purchased and it's the best £29 I've spent for product marketing! It makes your website looks like it's worth £10k+ and your services look high end, only £29 and I can sell my £299 courses now 😉 It's amazing! And they are amazing, I'll be back for more 🙂

I would highly recommend! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Hi, I've just tried Magic Zoom to see if it worked for my Squarespace website and unfortunately it only works on product images whereas as I need it for gallery images!!
Is there anything I can do to have it work on these gallery images?
Thanks a lot for your support.

Thierry

Hi Thierry! Magic Zoom works on Squarespace products out-of-the-box.

For gallery images, the image zoom will need to be customized. Please send us login details for your Admin area and a URL of one of the pages where you want to use image zoom:

Thanks!
