Images enlarged when selected with close/right/left buttons perhaps?

  • Updated 8 years ago
Assistance please, I would like to have on page various images, side by side. They will have a magnifying glass on bottom right corner of each (black box with magnifying glass inside), and when the magnifying glass selected, the image will enlarge (smoothly grow). The image will then have a 'close' wording bottom right in order to be closed.
If possible (but not essential), the image would have the right/left arrows to go on to the next image or back again if they wished (I guess like a lightbox, but only want images 'x' size when englarged).
Although the last one not so necessary. Suggestions please as to best way to approach this.
Many thanks.

Hello JC

I am not aware of any scripts offhand that I can suggest. I do think that if you upgrade to Yola Silver, this will widen your chances of being able to find something that would work for you as many of them I'm sure will require .js file uploads.

I'm hoping that some people on this forum may be able to come up with something. If I come across anything, I'll let you know.

Sanja, thanks heaps. Yes, the Silver will be much better for this sort of thing. I do have program/s that can do, or can use the one on the Yola site, but not exactly what I am after. Yes, please, if you do see/hear anything wld love to know. Thks again.

This sounds me as a type of lightbox. When you make the small, clickable pictures, you have to put the magnifying glass graphic on it wherever you want. The way of creating a lightbox in Yola can be found here : http://yolacodes.yolasite.com/lightbox

Thanks to Dynamic Drive and Sanja, who applied this at Yola before.:)

Valika, thank you for this., yes it is similar to a lightbox (which I have on another site), however, I just wish the magnifying glass to be able to be selected, not the image. So a little stumped on that. May have to settle for the lightbox tho. Again many thanks indeed for your suggestion. If you can think of anything else, wld love to know.
