JQuery effects have no limit, every day I discover with this library you can do miracles. Today, I’ll try to show you an effect that can be used in photography sites. The idea is show some images which are zoomed in initially and when hovering over an image it gets zoomed out.

First of all , we will create some wrappers for the images that will hide any overflow

<div class="wrap">
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/sylvielorenz/4337557318/">
 <img src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_kJGjnFglX6M/S5yzLh0EfUI/AAAAAAAAA6I/jz70ym64TbU/4337557318_04c2d152d5.jpg" alt="Picture 1"/>
</a>
</div> <div class="wrap"> <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/dogwatcher/3598245867/"> <img src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_kJGjnFglX6M/S5yzMl9IpyI/AAAAAAAAA6Q/df6PVF7gui8/3598245867_b2678ff69b.jpg" alt="Picture 2"/> </a> </div> <div class="wrap"> <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/marcmaignan/4244098565/"> <img src="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_kJGjnFglX6M/S5yzNQ7PE8I/AAAAAAAAA6U/4ccF5YJotXw/4244098565_9815828946.jpg" alt="Picture 3"/> </a> </div> <div class="wrap"> <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/bordignon/3687256762/"> <img src="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_kJGjnFglX6M/S5yzNw8uH9I/AAAAAAAAA6Y/se-sBCaS-Vg/3687256762_0f60d49b3c.jpg" alt="Picture 4"/> </a> </div> <div class="wrap"> <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/vranikamandelbrot/3879684755/"> <img src="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_kJGjnFglX6M/S5yzOB4fcvI/AAAAAAAAA6c/E1cluUaHHZc/3879684755_b2414093de.jpg" alt="Picture 5"/> </a> </div> <div class="wrap"> <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/37761626@N02/4088467669/"> <img src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_kJGjnFglX6M/S5yzML1CRqI/AAAAAAAAA6M/CkYdDe-SG4g/4088467669_df4c1113e5.jpg" alt="Picture 6"/> </a> </div>

With some css code , the image will be « zoomed in » initially :

.wrap{
    width:200px;
    height:200px;
    margin:0px;
    overflow:hidden;
    position:relative;
    float:left;
}
.wrap a img{
    border:none;
    position:absolute;
    top:-66.5px;
    left:-150px;
    height:500px;
    opacity: 0.5;
}

The javascript function will make the zoom effect when hovering over the images :

$(function() {
 $('#container img').hover(
  function(){
   var $this = $(this);
   $this.stop().animate({
     'opacity':'1.0',
     'height':'200px',
     'top':'0px',
     'left':'0px'
    });
  },
  function(){
   var $this = $(this);
   $this.stop().animate({
    'opacity':'0.5',
    'height':'500px',
    'top':'-66.5px',
    'left':'-150px'
    });
  }
 );
});

That’s all.
