Nivo Zoom: jQuery Image Zoom / Lightbox Plugin

Nivo Zoom is an easy to use simple jQuery plugin that lets you display larger or full size image like a lightbox. Its main feature is easily enabling you to specify position of the larger image relative to the thumbnail. Nivo Zoom is a cross browser plugin and has been tested in following browsers: Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 3+, Google Chrome 4, and  Safari 4.
