How to make the most of the Cool Image Magnifier app

The Cool Image Magnifier app has multiple configuration options which you can tune to better suit your Shopify store needs.

However, you should first try to upload high quality product images to your Shopify admin.

If your product vendor provides high quality images, use them. If it doesn't or you build your own products from scratch, invest in preparing some awesome pictures. Shopify provides a fantastic guide on how to do it at https://www.shopify.com/guides/product-photography where it also explains the reasons why having good images is critical to improve your sales.

In both cases, don't worry about the image sizes: always upload the biggest image available to Shopify. Shopify will automatically take care of the product image sizes, making copies of the images of different resolutions.

Cool Image Magnifier can use those different image sizes, just select in the app preferences page the one that looks  best in your store:
