Fancy Image Zooming With jQuery: FancyBox


Similar to Lightbox, FancyBox, a jQuery powered image zooming script, zooms the images with very nice loading and zoom-in / zoom-out effects.

jQuery Image Zoom


  • Automatically scales large images to fit in window
  • Adds a nice drop shadow under the full-size image
  • Image sets to group related images and navigate through them

Basic usage:

$(function() {

    $("div#test_zone a").fancybox();


FancyBox works with the major web browsers and can be configured for different closing effects.
