How do I get rid of the base image zoom in the default store?
I have only one image for each product, and I select that image to be ‘base’, ‘small’, and ‘thumbnail’ and also tick ‘exclude’ - and I have no zoom bar.
Avoiding pixelation is best done by creating the correct size images in the first place.
