This is a simple plugin with a fun backstory. When I was searching for Open Source libraries I could use for this gallery, I stumbled across several that had lurid images of women in suggestive positions.
I thought that was incredibly lame, so I wrote an article about how this plugin was developed without objectifying any women at all. You can read that here.
Here’s some of the features you get with ZOOM:
- All the great image size and border and hover effects of the Standard FooGallery templates
- Set the magnification level based on the image size and lens size.
- Blur and greyscale effects either on page load or on hover.
- Set your lens size and lens border size and color.
And here it is in action:

All donations are used to support local San Diego nonprofit organizations. I donate my time to them for their hosting and web development. Your donations help keep their hosting free, and help purchase plugins or other web-related products and/or services to keep them going strong.
