I greatly appreciate the zoomboxes given in this question: How to create magnified subfigures and corresponding boxes for portions of a large image. As the comments thread is already long enough I decided to make a new question.

Consider I want to place the boxes on the left side:

  \begin{tikzpicture}[figurename=fig:schmahmann,zoomboxarray,zoomboxes left,zoomboxarray columns=1,zoomboxarray rows=2,connect zoomboxes,zoombox paths/.append style={ultra thick, blue}]
   \node [image node] {\includegraphics[width=0.49\textwidth]{example-image-a}};

   \zoombox[magnification=3]{0.66,0.24}
 \end{tikzpicture}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

Which produces:

subcaption b before a

I know that those lines 90 and 91 needs to be swapped:

\node at (image.north) [anchor=north,inner sep=0pt] {\subcaptionbox{\label{\pgfkeysvalueof{/tikz/figurename}-image}}{\phantomimage}};
\node at (zoomboxes container.north) [anchor=north,inner sep=0pt] {\subcaptionbox{\label{\pgfkeysvalueof{/tikz/figurename}-zoom}}{\phantomimage}};

if the figures are placed on the left side.

Ok, I got it hacked this way:

  • \usepackage{xifthen} % I wasn't able to do this with ifthenelse macro already used in the code
  • replace lines 90 and 91 with the following code

    \ifthenelse{1=\pgfkeysvalueof{/tikz/zoomboxes xshift}}
    {
      \node at (image.north) [anchor=north,inner sep=0pt] {\subcaptionbox{\label{\pgfkeysvalueof{/tikz/figurename}-image}}{\phantomimage}};%
      \node at (zoomboxes container.north) [anchor=north,inner sep=0pt] {\subcaptionbox{\label{\pgfkeysvalueof{/tikz/figurename}-zoom}}{\phantomimage}};
    }
    {
      \node at (zoomboxes container.north) [anchor=north,inner sep=0pt] {\subcaptionbox{\label{\pgfkeysvalueof{/tikz/figurename}-zoom}}{\phantomimage}};%
      \node at (image.north) [anchor=north,inner sep=0pt] {\subcaptionbox{\label{\pgfkeysvalueof{/tikz/figurename}-image}}{\phantomimage}};
    }
