How to view and zoom out Faceook Images in Full-size just by hovering Mouse Pointer

Facebook is good, but certain aspects of it are quite annoying. Like, you might have struggled with viewing larger images of photo albums on Facebook sometime. If yes, I suggest you try FB Photo Zoom by Regis Gaughan. FB Photo Zoom is a simple and light-weight extension that integrates directly into FB and helps you view larger images of photo albums, profile photos and more.

Earlier, the photo zooming application was available only for browsers like Chrome and Safari but now it is compatible with Mozilla Firefox too. All the user need to do is, download and install the application. The process is dead simple and once completed successfully allows the user to go to his Facebook profile page and view images in full-size.


When installed, Facebook Photo Zoom adds a magnifying glass to your Facebook profile page. This magnifying glass is capable of expanding size of all images on Facebook each time you place the mouse over any photo in your news feed. This way you can check out images without having to completely open them. Besides, the photo-size enlarging application has several customization options that enable you to adjust the functions of the program to your needs and requirements. These include:

  1. keyboard shortcuts
  2. Delay time for the image amplification
  3. Photography shades.

It works well with websites that use thumbnail images.
