A common UI design pattern is to make an image fill the header as you scroll beyond the top, like this:

This post will show you how to do that, easily.

Implement the UIScrollViewDelegate method as follows:

- (void)scrollViewDidScroll:(UIScrollView *)scrollView {
    if (scrollView.contentOffset.y <= 0) {
        CGAffineTransform translate = CGAffineTransformMakeTranslation(0, scrollView.contentOffset.y/2.0);
        CGFloat orgHeight = _photoHeightConstraint.constant;
        CGFloat scaleFactor = (orgHeight - scrollView.contentOffset.y) / orgHeight;
        CGAffineTransform translateAndZoom = CGAffineTransformScale(translate, scaleFactor, scaleFactor);
        _photoImageView.transform = translateAndZoom;

In the code above _photoImageView is the image view that we want to make expandable, and _photoHeightConstraint is a NSLayoutConstraint for the height of _photoImageView.

That’s all for the code!

When the scroll view contentOffset changes, perform a zoom and translate transformation.
