Q: How does a store owner show several different pictures of the same product in several different sizes? For example, let’s say a car dealer wants to show the exterior of the car on the index of the site and the interior and exterior of the car at index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=x

Q: Your question (which has been asked frequently) goes here?
A: The meaningful answer that you obtained or found out yourself by spending countless hours in front of your screen goes here.

Q: Why has the “zoom” effect or watermarking stopped working?
A: Apparently, the Small Image Width and Height must be equal to the Width and Height of Image - Product Listing, Product New Listing, New Products, Featured Products, and Product All Listing. You can change those settings in Admin > Configuration > Images.

Q: How do I get rid of the pageY javascript error?
A: If you are getting the dreaded javascript pageY error, open your includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/jscript folder and make the following tiny change to the jscript_imagehover.js

Very near line 124 you should see:

ycoord += event.clientY - Math.max(0,(0 + zoomimg_h + (5 * padding) + event.pageY - docheight - truebody().scrollTop));

it should be:

ycoord += event.clientY - Math.max(0,(0 + zoomimg_h + (5 * padding) + event.clientY - docheight - truebody().scrollTop));
