Implementing JqZoom Evolution in Blogger



JqZoom allows the user to inspect an image with a small magnifier window

It can be modified to display a mask over the image or not to show an magnifier window.

This jQuery plugin helps to embed detailed big images in any website.

The script can be applied to single or multiple images on the same webpage.



             

Steps to Add it to Blogger:

1.Login to the Blogger account




2. Now Go to Design > Edit HTML.


3.Now search for the </head> tag and paste the following code just Above/Before it.

<link href="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/27675057/JqZoom/css/jquery.jqzoom.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"></link> 
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript">
</script>  
<script src="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/27675057/JqZoom/js/jquery.jqzoom-core.js" type="text/javascript">
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
 
  jQuery(document).ready(function(){
 
       jQuery('a#NAMEOFYOURCHOICE').jqzoom();
 
  });
 
  
</script>

<link href="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/27675057/JqZoom/css/jquery.jqzoom.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"></link> 
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript">
</script>  
<script src="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/27675057/JqZoom/js/jquery.jqzoom-core.js" type="text/javascript">
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
 
  jQuery(document).ready(function(){
 
       jQuery('a#NAMEOFYOURCHOICE').jqzoom();
 
  });

Make it like this



<a id='NAMEOFYOURCHOICE' href="large3.jpg"><img border="0" height="90" src="/small3.jpg" width="120" /></a>

Make sure that the id tag matches with that declared in the snippet
