Cloud Zoom is a jQuery image zoom plugin, a comparable alternative to products such as Magic Zoom. Compared to the popular jQZoom plugin, Cloud Zoom is smaller, has more features and more robust compatability across browsers, it's really small 6Kb and works with most browsers (tested on IE6+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari).

You can add tints of any colour (including black or white) to the small image, zoom position can be inside the smaller image, and apply a subtle soft-focus effect to the small image.
