A React component for zooming images


A React component for magnifying an image within its original container. The zoom behavior is triggered on click and the image can be moved by dragging on touch devices and by either dragging or hover panning on non-touch devices. The component supports responsive images and optional fullscreen zoom on mobile.

npm install react-inner-image-zoom


yarn add react-inner-image-zoom


I was originally importing the CSS directly into the component but I've recently realized that makes too many assumptions about the wider build process. You can now download the raw CSS file at:


or the minified raw minified version at:


to include however you see fit. Or, if your setup supports it, import the files directory from your node_modules using:

import 'react-inner-image-zoom/lib/InnerImageZoom/styles.css';


import 'react-inner-image-zoom/lib/InnerImageZoom/styles.min.css';


Import and render the component:

import InnerImageZoom from 'react-inner-image-zoom'; ... <InnerImageZoom src="/path/to/image.jpg" zoomSrc="/path/to/zoom-image.jpg" />

This is the simplest usage. For additional examples, visit the demo page.
