This is a very lean solution if you want to add a magnifying glass effect to an image. It has no backend, you simply enter a WordPress shortcode in the post/page. Perfect if you have just a few images on your site that need this effect.

I've just found this app. So easy! Make two copies of the same image - one small and one large, then insert shortcode. That's it! Love it! Works perfectly out of the box. Definitely a winner! Thank you!
