Welcome to the forum. An easier way would be to load the photo into a photo editing application from the App Store and use the feature that can zoom into a certain part only of that photo. I'm not aware of the name of the feature. :p

I've tried to reproduce what you do, but I don't see it. Can you show a screenshot of what you refer to?
I believe they are saying when they zoom in on a photo that was already taken to make the photo more zoomed in. This of course would cause the top status bar to be there if you take a screenshot.

I reproduced what you're doing. If you zoom out a bit then zoom in, the status bar will show. I made it go away by tapping the photo twice.
Zoomed out:

Tap it til you get the white status and info:

Tap once more and it should be gone:

I'm on iPhone 5 and I zoom in, tap once to get info, tap again and time and battery etc are still there. Interesting. But I myself use a photo editing app to zoom in. Easier.

Everytime I zoom after taking a pic to screen shot the zoomed it pic the top info on my phone (carrier logo,wi fi etc) show on my pic. Anyway to get this off?
Do not zoom in on the picture and do not take a screenshot. Instead just crop the original picture in the stock photos app.

1. Tap "Edit" in the upper right corner.
2. Select the crop tool in the lower right corner.
3. Crop the picture.

This is the simplest method. No third party app is required and it won't add any status bar elements.

I'll be completely honest. I did not know this. I must be out of touch. I just jump to 3rd party apps without checking first.
