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.
