  • Have you commented your js/lib/elevatezoom/jquery.elevateZoom-3.0.8.min.js file in your catalog.xml file?

  • open skin/frontend/rwd/default/js/app.js and comment line no. 649 i.e. image.elevateZoom(); clear your magento cache.

I managed to remove elevatezoom by inserting the following in my local.xml:

<catalog_product_view translate="label">
    <reference name="head">
        <action method="removeItem"><type>skin_js</type><name>js/lib/elevatezoom/jquery.elevateZoom-3.0.8.min.js</name></action>
  • The problem is, is that the console will show an error when you remove this file, coming from the app.js file: Uncaught TypeError: image.elevateZoom is not a function. Anyway to clean that up in a good practice? Sep 6, 2016 at 10:17
