Script Summary: Enlarges actor pictures and film posters in IMDB cast and actor/actress lists on hover.
**IMPORTANT UPDATE**:This script is no longer updated. My new script, which can be found here: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/117027 , is a much more comprehensive thumbnail image enlarger/expander for IMDB with a few configurable options.
This script will continue to be present in USO but will not receive any new features/bug-fixes.
This was originally a small revision to an existing script that I was using. The old one stopped working with the new imdb design/layout. But now, I have added more features that I wanted and it has become significantly different from the one I used before.
This script is tested and is working with Google Chrome.
Also, if you use Flickr, check out my other userscript, FLUTE (FLickr Ultimate Thumbnail Expander).
Feature set:-Shows a large (150x200 px) version of cast/poster in pages that show them. Currently, the following pages are supported:
* Title list
* Full Credits list
* Name list
* Chart list
* Search Result
* Find list
* Galleries & MediaIndex pages
-Highlights the current row under the mouse.
-Shows a link to Google Images next to a character name.
-Shows an enlarged view (max ~620px square) of images in the media strip under the movie poster. This now works in Names pages and Find pages also.
-Shows an enlarged preview of movie posters in the Recommendations section in title pages (Requested by Duri).
-Fixed support in "mediaindex" page.
-Made some functions more generic.
-ToDo::In title page, "Recommended" section is late-loading and needs fixing.
-Added support for List pages (imdb.com/list/*).
-Added support for "Known For" section in Names page.
-Updated support for "Full Cast and Crew" page.
-Removed non-www include urls. (Thanks Chicago_gangster)
-Tweaked Charts page for bigger photo and better layout.
-Added support for Gallery pages (imdb.com/*/gallery/). Finally :)
-Added support for Mediaindex pages (imdb.com/*/mediaindex*)
-Tweaked zoom/resize code.
-Updated code to work with IMDB's latest code change involving "lateload".
-Added Media Strip hover support for the Find pages
-Moved the usual hover images in the Title and Search Pages to the right-hand side and changed the enlarged size to 500px (max).
-More importantly, finally gotten round to moving the zooming function to a generic function. The zooming is more robust now taking into account the images' aspect ratio and crop factor.
-Media Strip enlarge support added for Names pages also. Tweaked the size of the image to full resolution (but display size is still constrained to container width).
-Added similar functionality to the "Recommendations" strip in the title page.
-Now hovering on the media images under the movie poster in the movie's title page will show an enlarged image under it.
-Added support for Keywords(moka) page(imdb.com/keyword/).
-Added support for Chart page (imdb.com/chart/).
-Added support for Search results page (imdb.com/search/*).
-Added support for Find results page (imdb.com/find?*).
-Cleaned up the code a bit. Now the styles and js for each page executes only on that page.
-Now hovering over a cast row will dim the other rows. This effect is not applied to name pages because it didn't look useful there.
-Added extra font effects on hover to both cast and name pages.
-Added support for name pages as well.
-Cleaned up code and removed repeated hard-coded values.
