AJAX-ZOOM - thumb hover zoom gallery

Ver. 4.2.1+ This example has been totally rewritten. It now uses a simple "thumb hover zoom" jQuery plugin; jquery.axZm.hoverThumb.js is shipped as extension to AJAX-ZOOM.

Responsive 20% width

Depending on resolution width changes over adjustable CSS3 @media Queries to 16.66, 20%, 25%, 33.33%, 50% or 100%; height is set instantly over $.azHoverThumb "parentHeightRatio" option, which is a fixed width/height image ratio;

Fixed width and height of the thumbs

Fixed height of the thumbs (height can be also responsive as %) and "parentWidthRatio" set to "auto"

"auto" width also works in IE < 9 with this plugin

Try various AJAX-ZOOM open mods

Open AJAX-ZOOM at fullscreen mode
Open AJAX-ZOOM in responsive "Fancybox"
Open AJAX-ZOOM in regular "Fancybox"
Open AJAX-ZOOM in "Colorbox"
Enable monitor size fullscreen: - enable - disable

There you can change existing options or copy from /axZm/zoomConfig.inc.php other options to change the values.
