Default NEW Image Zoom Function in Reviews

You all may have noticed that the images in our reviews have been clickable thumbnails for the last little while. However, behind the scenes we have been working on improving the image viewing experience for the readers of the reviews and have now implemented an Image Zoom function into MOST of the images in reviews.

So, instead of having the larger image pop open in a new window, it will now zoom in directly over the thumbnail image.

The FIRST review this has been implemented in is the EliteXStream 800W review posted today.

Here is a quick How To:

- Click on an image when the small hand shows up (may be changed to a magnifying glass)

- To return the image to NORMAL size mouse over it to see the magnifying glass with the "-" sign and click

- To cycle through the images on that page in their "zoomed" sizes, click on one and then press the Right or Left d-pad arrow buttons on your keyboard. You can then click on it again to return it to its thumbnail size.

- To move a zoomed image, click on it and hold the left mouse button and drag it to where you want it. You can then click on it again to return it to its thumbnail size.

Hope you all like this new feature in the reviews.
