I’ve been creating a gallery page for my current project and wanted a nice way of displaying the full-size images without resorting to pop-ups (yuk!)… Enter Lightbox 2.
Lightbox 2 is a JS library which is ideal for displaying gallery pages of images. When the user clicks on a thumbnail the full version of the image transitions in to the center of the screen and the background is overlayed with a transparent black image – which is what gives it the light-box effect.
Anyway my explanation isn’t the most revealing so go take a look at it yourself!
