In Category Free plugins, WordPress

We would like to announce you our latest plugin, Nextend Image Magnifier. This plugin helps you to publish high resolution images into your blog posts and pages with a cool magnifying glass effect. Comes with fancy skins and effects also you can scroll, zoom, resize, tap, touch, pinch and it’s responsive!

Demo #1

In the past we had a lot of problems with high resolution images, because we would like to show every little details of the picture, but the post or page layout width doesn’t fit for our needs. It wasn’t the layout’s mistake, an usual monitor resolution is around 1280×1024 pixels. (You can check the usual monitor resolutions at W3C.) It means you can not publish bigger picture, because you don’t want to show your visitors the horizontal scroll bar… Nowadays the most cheapest camera comes with 10 megapixel resolution (3648*2736 pixels) and an usual smartphone has 5 megapixel (2560×1920 pixels) in-built camera. Our Nextend Image Magnifier gives you the tool to show every precious part of your picture without limitations.

      1. Thanks – I did just try a test and got this error:
        Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONST in /home/rastarr/public_html/coonwp/wp-content/plugins/nextend-image-magnifier/freshizer.php on line 26

        Also, I noticed that I was unable to choose and insert an image from a NextGen Gallery. Since this is about photos/images, I’m sure being able to choose from one of the most popular gallery plugins will be a sought after feature.

        1. I have added a little fix in version 1.0.1. Do this error still exists?
          Thank for the feature request, we will check the possibilities with NextGen Gallery and I think we will support that plugin soon.

          1. updated to 1.02 – NextGen works great.

            Though I’m now getting this error:
            Fatal error: Can’t inherit abstract function fIImgPathPredictor::predictPath() (previously declared abstract in fAImgPathPredictor) in /home/rastarr/public_html/coonwp/wp-content/plugins/nextend-image-magnifier/freshizer.php on line 1222

            P.S Tried logging in to your site and authenticating with Twitter and got a big long error msg. You might want to check that out

          1. And I also notice that the ‘Add’ JS popups come up as blank, despite the default WP Add Image is OK. Both of the plugins popups i.e. from above the editor as well as the one included in the WP menu editor.

            An additional enhancement might be being able to trigger a Google Analytics event to show that an image is being interacted with – this is a bonus for site owners that show Google that the site has ‘reader interest’. Unsure whether you can do that but thought I’d mention it.

          1. Sweet. I see it working now! Wonder work.
            I’ll let you know about the GA Event when that data should trickle through. Very fine plugin indeed

  1. Love this plugin! I love that you integrated Nextgen Gallery support. I don’t see any documentation on how to integrate the two. Any help is greatly appreciated!

      1. Thanks so much for getting back to me! I don’t see it anywhere, am I missing something lol? I have the latest versions of the Image Magnifier, NextGen Gallery & WordPress…

        Thanks again!

  2. So I just found that tab you mentioned. I misunderstood the NextGen support, I was hoping I could use the magnifying tool IN the NextGen gallery. Is this possible? Thanks again!!

      1. I would love to use it in the galleryview style gallery so that the large (not the thumbs) gives you the option to use the magnifier (the circle) when mousing over. Would be great for products, etc.

        I would really be interested in integrating it with a lightbox as well. I have clients that want to show in depth detail of their work (jewelry, art, etc).

        So, if I loaded in my Nextgen gallery and had some option (in the shortcode via template, or some other way) to activate the Nextend Magnify tool, that would be amazing!

        It really is a great plugin, great support too!

  4. Hi, I love the plugin and appreciate the work put into it. However, I do have one issue:
    On mobile, at least on Android, the zoomed window shows up on page load. Is there a way to keep this from happening until someone uses their finger to touch the image?

  5. I have installed your plugin. When I add an image to magnify, I get the following error message:

    Warning: mkdir() [function.mkdir]: Permission denied in C:\Inetpub\vhosts\\httpdocs\wp-content\plugins\nextend-image-magnifier\freshizer.php on line 222

  6. Hi, I’ve just installed your beautiful plugin, but the magnifier appears “plain” without any skin (border, light, dark or others…). How can I fix it?
    Here’s my shortcode:
    [magny image="xxxxxxxx/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/mappa-Skirama-2012-2000x1400.jpg" title="" description="" align="none" click="1" scroll_zoom="1" small_image="" canvas_mode="1" maxwidth="755px" zoom="1" dia="450px" skin="new-im-frame-simple,new-title-off,new-description-off,new-slider-off,new-im-magnifier-light"]

  7. Hello,

    this plugin is awesome.
    I have a little problem with Image Magnifier.
    I am using WordPress version 3.8.1
    If I activate a plugin Nextend Image Magnifier does not work areas of widgets (layers of sidebar and footer 1, 2 and 3 not clickable).
    I’m talking about the administrative panel, of course :)
    If I deactivate the plugin, I can edit widgets with no problem.
    At the moment every time I want to do something in the widgets I must deactivate the Image Magnifier, edit and activate a plugin back.
    What could be the problem?
