Replace or hide the magnifier icon on every images on a product page on mobile.

11 0 1

I think on hover, that magnifier icon with the + sign in the middle, to enlarge or trigger the lightbox preview, is okish but on mobile?? An icon on every photos... not very nice...


So I would like to either be able to replace the icon with a more subtle (transparent background icon) as there is no hover state on mobile.. or hide it... users are used to tap on photos... they don't need an icon...

Hi @Futurisnow ,
This is Theodore from PageFly - Shopify Page Builder App.


Don't like the zoom icon on product images for mobile in your Shopify store? Here are 2 solutions:

1. Hide the Zoom Icon on Mobile (Theme Editing):

  • Edit theme code (requires some knowledge).
  • Find the product image zoom code (e.g., product.liquid).
  • Locate the zoom icon visibility section and set it to hide on screens smaller than 768px (mobile).

2. Use a Theme App (More Flexibility):

  • Install a product image zoom app from the Shopify App Store.
  • Look for apps that allow:
    • Replacing zoom icon with a transparent one.
    • Hiding the icon on mobile while keeping zoom on tap.

Choose the option that best suits your comfort level and desired outcome.

Best regards,

I would prefer just to hide the icon on mobile... but I only find "Card-product.liquid" file... and I search for icon or zoom to change the visibility in the code but nothing shows up... can you help?
