Adding Zoom feature in light box

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'd like to know a way of adding a zoom-in feature in the galleries, so when the user clicks on a picture, once the photo is opened in lightbox, they can zoom in to see details and texture of the image. I'm surprised that I don't find that feature in Squarespace, since it's very needed. Each time a lightbox opens, the picture looks almost the same size as its thumbnail.

I would very much appreciate any help or insight on this.

Adding a zoom-in feature to galleries in Squarespace can enhance the user experience and allow visitors to view images in more detail. While Squarespace doesn't offer a built-in zoom feature for lightbox galleries, you can achieve this effect using a workaround with custom code or third-party plugins.

  1. use custom codes
  2. third party plugins

Could you be more specific? I'd appreciate that. Like, for example, providing such custom code that allows the zoom-in, or name some plug ins...
