How does the lightbox effect work?
Although the main purpose of our Cool Image Magnifier app is to magnify the product images with the loupe, it also has the lightbox effect feature to allow a full image zoom.
You can easily enable or disable this Lightbox effect for your product images through the app preference page. Just do the following:
- In your Shopify Admin, go to the Apps section
- Find your Cool Image Magnifier
- Tap on Image preferences > Scroll down to Lightbox
Once there, you can enable/disable it:
This configuration is global. If the option is enabled, it will work on both desktop and mobile view. Unfortunately, we can't control nor limit its functionality to just one device.
When it is enabled, you can click on product images, and they will be displayed on a full screen; and if your product has multiple images, navigation arrows at the bottom of the screen can be used to toggle between images on desktop view.
And you can exit the full-screen image by clicking on the top right X icon or by hitting the ESC key.
On the other hand, on mobile devices, you won't see any arrows because the default behavior for the lightbox effect on mobile consists of allowing you to swipe between images (right-left); therefore, no arrows will be displayed.
