Can I create a Photo Zoom "state"?

Jan 14, 2021

I have a Storyline 360 slide with 4 pictures on it, and I'd like the user to be able to zoom in on each - but not until the end of the slide.  I'm trying to have the images start in a Disabled state without the Zoom Photo option, and then when the timeline hits a certain point have them switch to a Normal state that allows the click-to-zoom option, but it's not working.  Any suggestions or ideas?

Hi, Melissa,

This should work:

  • Insert 2 aligned versions of each photo: one without Zoom and one with Zoom. And put the one with Zoom on top of the one without Zoom.
  • Set the initial value of the ones with Zoom to Hidden. 
  • Change those states to Normal when the timeline ends. (You could also set the state of the other ones to Hidden, though that shouldn't be needed if they're aligned.)

Thanks for the idea!  Your suggestion to duplicate the images gave me another idea, to paste the duplicate images together on a layer that pops up over the base layer right at the end of the timeline, and I put the Zoom options on the images there.  Thank you for your help!
