Large Google+ profile pictures and shared photos are displayed as small thumbnails. Sure you can just click on them to get a larger view. But wouldn’t it be nice to just mouse over them for a larger view? Here’s how.
First install the +Photo Zoom extension for Chrome.
After it’s installed, go to Google+ and mouse over any thumbnail in your Google+ Stream to enlarge it.
Go to extension options to customize how it works. To do that, click on Wrench Menu then click Tools.
Next, click on Extensions.
Now, find +Photo Zoom and click on Options.
You can assign shortcut keys or tweak zoom in option for specific photos. Play around and have fun!
+Photo Zoom comes in handy for seeing more detail in photos, and it’s faster than opening the photo.
It’s already available for chrome (and has been for some time)under the hoverzoom (version3.4) extension. I use that all the time.
