Maximize images to fit to screen

Posted on

Imagine you have a thumbnail and a full-sized image. How do you enable visitors to view the maximized one?

Maxbox is a jQuery plugin that does it nicely (mainly on iPhone). See demo.

the usage is too simple. you have a thumbnail, which is linked to the full-sized image, and do

$('img').maxbox();

(don’t forget to load jQuery, maxbox.js and maxbox.css.)

MaxBox is customizable. You can specify events to maximize / restore, transition speed, CSS classes of the box and background, and how to get the url of your full-sized image. Read the README for details.

Have fun!
