Hi Timmy, thanks for panzoom, it's excellent! I would like to use it in my webpage, but unfortunately the users of the webpage predominantly use IE8. I would be interested in developing an IE8 version therefore, so wanted to ask you for advice on whether this is easily possible and/or what barriers there are to doing this? Any advice appreciated, cheers!
Hi, thanks for asking a question. Panzoom uses CSS transformation matrices and transitions that are not supported in IE8. However, if you are seeking panning and zooming capabilities for an image element, I would direct towards some excellent plugins:
Zooming is a different story. No one has really gotten this to work correctly in IE8. The best solution I’ve seen has been to to increase the width and height of an image, which doesn’t really require a plugin. That said, you may be interested in jQuery Zoom, which has its own take on the UX of zooming.
