View Larger Photo


Recommended Posts

I'd like to do away with the click to enlarge link for the pop up larger image and instead have a view larger photo link that would up-size the product image right there in the main product info area without the pop up routine...Is there already a contribution out there that will do this? Any suggestions?

Edit product_info.php and change:

<script language="javascript"><!--

document.write('<?php echo '<a href="javascript:popupWindow('' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_POPUP_IMAGE, 'pID=' . $product_info['products_id']) . '')">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $product_info['products_image'], addslashes($product_info['products_name']), SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT, 'hspace="5" vspace="5"') . '<br>' . TEXT_CLICK_TO_ENLARGE . '</a>'; ?>');



<?php echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $product_info['products_image']) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $product_info['products_image'], $product_info['products_name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT, 'hspace="5" vspace="5"') . '<br>' . TEXT_CLICK_TO_ENLARGE . '</a>'; ?>



To read:

<?php echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $product_info['products_image'], $product_info['products_name'], '', '', 'hspace="5" vspace="5"'); ?>

Do you mean show the small image everywhere, but on product_info.php just so the real image at real size?




Thank you for taking a shot at this but what I'd like is to show the small image everywhere but on product_info.php I want to have a link to larger image detail and when clicked, the image will auto re-size to the larger more detailed image within the product_info.php page instead of the way it is now where the larger image is a pop-up, an example url http://www.altrec.com/shop/detail/88/14 (click on view larger photo at it resizes in the product info page).

Maybe you could copy the product_info.php, rename it (for example product_info_big.php) and make Lindas suggestion in there. Then link from product_info.php to product_info_big.php (or whatever you migth like to call it)

You could add a paramater that loads the normal product_info.php with small image and a link on that image that when clicked, reloads product_info.php but triggered by that link is a setting to load the big image rather than the small image.


Basically a redirect to the same page but setting a variable so it knows when to load which image. By default, the $load_big_image would be set to false, then the link would set it to true, and the the reload would set it back to false for next time.


Dizzy yet? :shock:

Goodness. Install the image/bimage contribution (takes about 5 minutes even on MS1).


Then in product_info.php remove all the javascript/noscript pop-up stuff and simply reference your big image in the .sql query.


If anyone wants to see this in action, feel free to PM me, I cannot post it here as I do not want a load of test accounts made by "lurkers" and others!

Yes, but I get the point.


But why stop there ? Lets wrap several nice contributions to enhance the usability and ease of maintenance. Warning ! this will get complicated and I am not sure how to implement this. Maybe PHP-gurus Linda and Burt figure a way to implement this.




  • No image at all: same way to handle this as current way, show nothing.


Small image: image shown with no link


Small and large image: small image with link to modified products_info.php page or better yet Lindas suggestion.


Small and large image + photogallery: small image with link to modified products_info.php page with larger and another modified products_info.php with only additional images (no pop-ups, same way of handling larger image as trustens photogallery but larger, selected image with http parameters) or better yet Lindas suggestion.


Image resizing with automatic thumbnails.


Now that would be a nice contribution :D



Links to needed contributions if someone with better skills in php than mine would try to implment this:


Additional Images Module (Version 1.0)






automatic thumbnails
