loupe | a jQuery image magnifier

loupe is a lightweight (~1k minified) onhover image magnifier for jQuery. just download jquery.loupe.min.js and initialize it like:

$('selector').loupe({
  width: 400, // width of magnifier
  height: 300, // height of magnifier
  loupe: 'loupe' // css class for magnifier
});

the selector should reference links containing thumbnail images, or images shrunk by the browser. the settings (width, etc.) are optional. some demos:

demo 2: large image shrunk by browser

$('#demo-2').loupe();
