Here's a demonstration of Product Image Zoom on a Product Item Page:

Before you begin

  • Product Image Zoom isn't available on mobile devices.
  • For best results, format your image for display on the web before uploading.
  • Image Zoom displays a larger version of the image; it technically doesn't zoom in on an image file.
  • Images with transparent backgrounds (.png) will display the original image behind the zoomed version.
