Hey guys :).  Welcome to the ImageView Zoom Tutorial for iPhone & iPad.

Ok, this vid shows you how you can take your image view (uiimageview) code that is created for you by Dapp and turn them into zoomable images for iOS (iPhone & iPad).

Of course, if you just want to create zoomable images (scale, pan) in your own code then you can use this too.

As a special treat I’ve also included a custom class that you can use in your projects :)… so if you are feeling lazy, just grab the custom class and drop it into your code.

—-> KFImageZoomView class files. <—-

For those who are extra lazy, here is the custom class code you can copy/paste and learn from.. or just use in your own iOS projects! :).

// You are free to do whatever you want with this code 😀
// Cliff, Kerofrog


@interface KFImageZoomView : UIScrollView  {
    UIImageView *imageView;

@property (nonatomic, retain)   UIImageView     *imageView;

#pragma mark Initialisation
- (id)initWithImageNamed:(NSString *)imageName atLocation:(CGPoint)location;

// You are free to do whatever you want with this code 😀
// Cliff, Kerofrog

#import "KFImageZoomView.h"

@implementation KFImageZoomView

@synthesize imageView;

#pragma mark - Memory Management

- (void) dealloc {
    [self.imageView release];
    [super dealloc];

#pragma mark - Initialisation

- (id)initWithImageNamed:(NSString *)imageName atLocation:(CGPoint)location {
    self = [super init];
    if (self) {
        // Assign the delegate
        self.delegate = self;
        // Create our image view using the passed in image name
        self.imageView = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithImage:[UIImage imageNamed:imageName]];
        // Update the ImageZoom frame to match the dimensions of passed in image
        self.frame = CGRectMake(location.x, location.y, 
                                self.imageView.frame.size.width, self.imageView.frame.size.height);
        // Set a default minimum and maximum zoom scale
        self.minimumZoomScale = 0.5f;
        self.maximumZoomScale = 3.0f;
        // Add image view as a subview
        [self addSubview:self.imageView];
    return self;

#pragma mark - UIScrollViewDelegates

- (void)scrollViewDidEndZooming:(UIScrollView *)scrollView withView:(UIView *)view atScale:(float)scale {

- (UIView *)viewForZoomingInScrollView:(UIScrollView *)scrollView {
    return self.imageView;
