Most images we look at are setup as thumbnails, but you can't see them as well. Image Zoom is an extension that does exactly what it says, but there are a couple other features that stand out.

Some of the features included in the Image Zoom are:

  • RMB+scroll zooming (Right mouse button + mouse wheel zooming)
  • Page Zooming
  • Reset Image Size
  • Custom Zoom
  • Custom Dimensions
  • Fit Image to Screen
  • Zoom to Preset Values directly from menu
  • Option to Change Zoom In/Out Factor
  • Options to hide/show each menu item
  • Show items in main context or a Zoom Image sub menu
  • Locales cs-CZ, de-DE, en-US, es-AR, es-ES, fr-FR, hu-HU, it-IT, ja-JP, ko-KR, sl-SI, tr-TR, zh-TW

When the extension is installed, right-click on an image and the context menu shows additional image options. It installed without a hitch and seems pretty solid. Its been in my extension collection for a while.

Excellent extension.
