  2. To remove the "Please upgrade" text, buy a license and overwrite the /includes/templates/YOUR-TEMPLATE-NAME/jscript/magicscroll.js file with that from your licensed version.

Combine zoom & spin

To zoom some images and spin others on your product page (like the example above), you can install both Magic Zoom and Magic 360.

    images / dvd
    images / medium
    images / large

    This example will use the 'images / dvd' folder only.

    The filenames of your large images (we recommend 800px height for each image but you can use any size) should be in a sequence ending in -01.jpg, -02.jpg etc. like so:

    bike-01.jpg
    bike-02.jpg
    bike-03.jpg

    Upload all the large images to 'images / dvd' folder on your server. (NB: Zen Cart will automatically create a smaller version of your images to fit your Product and use your original large images for the zoom and enlarge effects).

    • screenshot

      Go to Admin panel > Catalogue > Categories/Products > [Your product]. Scroll down to the product image section and click 'Browse'. Upload a small image of your product (to appear on the Category page). The image name must be the same prefix as your large zoom images, in this example it would be:

      bike.jpg

    • screenshot Under Upload to directory, select "dvd" from the drop down menu.
    • Under Overwrite Existing Image on Server? select "no".
    • Click 'Preview'.
    • Click 'Update'.
    • That's it! Your small image will now appear on the Category page. Your large images will appear as zoom and enlarge features on your Product page.

Reliable, Progressive features, Support
As a long time user, Magiczoom has been key to show off the details of our fashions. Magictoolbox has continued to grow the features available aiding in product sales. We changed templates and had issues with the coding of the template, which was not normal for Magiczoom install. Magictoolbox staff worked through the issue without a problem and got us back functioning. Support, product development, and reliability keeps us coming back to their products. You won't be disappointed.
