During the recent launch of Keramikoskitchen.com, our client, Naseem Jarjoura, wanted to allow for product images to be enlarged when double-clicked. For some reason the image would just not load correctly so that it fit within its allotted area correctly. Here is an example of what Naseem wanted to do:
When you double click on the knife set, then you get this enlarged image:
Images need to be sized specifically according to their Magento store location in order to pull this off. Here is what Naseem had to say:
In order to achieve the best results the image should be sized to 600 x 600. This size allows for a centered image, zoom functionality and click to enlarge is not overblown. If you notice in the knife sets I incorporated into the art a “click here to close”. Simple solution for people that can’t figure out how to close the screen.

Braveheart was on this afternoon. One of my favorite scenes is when Wallace and his men first meet the crazy Irishman. Two guys show up in the woods to join a movement. One is normal, well-spoken, and blends in initially. He even presents a present to Wallace…how thoughtful. The other guy is crazy. He puts a knife to someone’s throat (immediately pointing out a lapse in security). The next scene plays out with an unanticipated twist: the crazy guy saves Wallace’s life from the normal guy’s assassination attempt.
At Elias we could use a few developers to help us grow. We are looking for the crazy loyal type, not the nice stab-you-in-the-back type. Do you have an island?
