FancyZoom: jQuery Plugin

jQuery plugin of Cabel's FancyZoom. This version of FanyZoom attempts to be as minimual as possible. No gallery or caption support. Just a simple zoom of linked images.


Easiest way to get the latest version is to just download the latest release straight from github. Once unzipped, place the contents of the js, css and img folders accordingly into your site.

To Use

Include js/jquery-1.11.0.min.js and js/jquery.fancyzoom.min.js inside your <head> section as shown.

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.fancyzoom.min.js"></script>

You will also want to include the fancyzoom.css file insead your <head> section. Don't forget to change the background image paths if you place contents of the img folder in an different directory.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/fancyzoom.css">

Now when you create links to images in your HTML, you can flag them with a class to have the become lightboxed.

<a href="img/big.jpg" class="fancy"><img src="img/small.jpg"></a>

Then on your Javascript's document ready you can fire the jQuery fancyZoom selector.

$(document).ready(function() {

FancyZoom takes only one option minBorder which allows you to specify how much border should always be around your images once lighboxed. This value is 90 pixels by default.

$(document).ready(function() {
        minBorder: 90
