How to Remove the Zoom from WooCommerce Product Images

One of the more dynamic interface features of WooCommerce is the ability to zoom in on a product image by simply hovering over it with your mouse.

You can find similar design choices on a lot of the most popular online retailers from huge giants like Amazon to smaller shops selling a wide variety of products.

The zoom feature for product images is nice but not necessarily something that is right for all kinds of stores or items. For instance, not all products really require users to have the ability to see up tight and close.

It’s also possible that the zoom effect provided by WooCommerce could cause conflicts with other parts of your WordPress theme or plugins that you have installed.

You can find and pay a WordPress or WooCommerce professional to remove this image zoom from your site. Just make sure you find someone you trust to get into your site’s code and not break something important.

If you want to save yourself some time and hassle then consider purchasing and using our Remove WooCommerce Features plugin instead.
