Magic Thumb is project that offers a neat way of enlarging thumbail images using a JavaScript effect similar to a lightbox.

Here are some key features of "Magic Thumb":

· Enjoyable - clever effect that people enjoy using.
· Fast - the large images download after the page has fully loaded.
· Easy - integrate it into your website in minutes.
· Customizable - change the speed, keyboard behaviour, colors.
· Accessible - if JavaScript is disabled, the large image opens as link.

One reason why Magic Thumb is popular is that the user stays on the same page. You don't need to load a new page or use popup windows. It just loads immediately on click.

The user experience is rich - people like the web 2.0 lightbox enlarge effect. Users appreciate that it is immediate - the large image enlarges on click without waiting for it to download. This gives a better experience than waiting (as with an AJAX lightbox that requests images on demand).

You can display an unlimited number of images on a page. Large images have large file sizes, so be sure to compress your images with a good ratio of size to quality (aim for a JPEG filesize of 30-70kb). You can use JPEG, PNG or GIF.

Two images are required for Magic Thumb™ - one large image (about 300-450 pixels high) and one thumbnail image (roughly 120px wide or 90px high works well).

Basic installation
