11+ Best Chrome Plugins for Image zooming

in Browser, - June 8, 2014

The top Chrome plugins for image zooming are simple and lightweight extensions to help you see enlarged images of albums, profile images and other images whenever you hover over them. All you need to do to browse image galleries with ease is just move the mouse cursor over thumbnails to view images in their full size. This saves you the trouble of loading the picture in a new page, which can be time consuming. The images are automatically resized if they do not fit in the window. The best use of these plugins is being made in social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, etc. where a lot of images are posted and shared daily. Ease of image viewing is not the only feature offered by these premium plugins; some also have support for video files (WebM, MP4), option to disable zooming for specific sites or enable zooming only for specific sites.


You can also adjust delay and fading effects for the zoomed in images and obtain them in semi- transparent form. Many advanced plugins for social networking sites offer additional functions such as the activation of keyboard shortcuts when the image is in zoomed view and the larger images load in-line instead of popping out and you can view them in a more manageable size. Some free wordpress plugins for zooming work only with files of .jpg, .bmp, .png, .gif extensions.  Load an extension for any of your social networking sites and enjoy the ease of image viewing like never before.
