So Create a sample product summary page, don’t forget to include bootstrap libraries.

 <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.5/css/bootstrap.min.css">
  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="http://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.5/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<div class="container">
  <h2>Bootstrap popover example </h2>        
  <table class="table table-bordered">
    <thead>
      <tr>
        <th>PID</th>
        <th>Image</th>
        <th>Product Name</th>
        <th width="50%">Product Description</th>
      </tr>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
      <tr>
        <td>001</td>
        <td><img class="imgzm" src="img/1.jpg" title="" height="130" width="100"></td>
        <td>Product - 1</td>
        <td>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
      <td>002</td>
        <td><img class="imgzm" src="img/2.jpg" title="" height="130" width="100"></td>
        <td>Product - 2</td>
        <td>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>J003</td>
        <td><img class="imgzm" src="img/3.jpg" title="" height="130" width="100"</td>
        <td>Product - 3</td>
        <td>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.</td>
      </tr>
    </tbody>
  </table>
</div>

After that add popover feature on your product summary page.

<script>             
$(function() {
 $('.imgzm').popover({
  html: true,
  trigger: 'hover',
  content: function () {
    return '<img src="'+$(this).attr('src') + '" width="500" height="500" />';
  }
 });
})
</script>

Now your final product summary page with image tooltip will be..

index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <title>Product Summary</title>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.5/css/bootstrap.min.css">
  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="http://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.5/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
</head>
<style>
.popover{
    max-width: 100%; /* Max Width of the popover (depending on the container!) */
}
</style>
<body>
 
<div class="container">
  <h2>Bootstrap popover example </h2>        
  <table class="table table-bordered">
    <thead>
      <tr>
        <th>PID</th>
        <th>Image</th>
        <th>Product Name</th>
        <th width="50%">Product Description</th>
      </tr>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
      <tr>
        <td>001</td>
        <td><img class="imgzm" src="img/1.jpg" title="" height="130" width="100"></td>
        <td>Product - 1</td>
        <td>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
      <td>002</td>
        <td><img class="imgzm" src="img/2.jpg" title="" height="130" width="100"></td>
        <td>Product - 2</td>
        <td>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>J003</td>
        <td><img class="imgzm" src="img/3.jpg" title="" height="130" width="100"</td>
        <td>Product - 3</td>
        <td>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.</td>
      </tr>
    </tbody>
  </table>
</div>
<script>             
$(function() {
 $('.imgzm').popover({
  html: true,
  trigger: 'hover',
  content: function () {
    return '<img src="'+$(this).attr('src') + '" width="500" height="500" />';
  }
 });
})
</script>
</body>
