    lots of wordpress blog use lightboxes for there pictures. but (so far I now) you need to use a plugin or theme for this function. woulded it be easy to have a lightbox included in wordpress.

    Especially for galleries.

    From https://wordpress.org/ideas/topic/should-make-lightbox-option-part-of-wordpress-core?replies=2&topic_resolution=updated&message=closed

    Seems like everyone's using it, so why not have a checkbox in Settings > Media? At least make a functionality for galleries, as it seems that some theme's and plugin's built-in light boxes are overridden by WordPress's lack of support for lightboxes. Would help with security.
    If not, anyone have a reliable Plugin suggestion?

    No, not everyone is using it. Not even the majority. Wouldn't help with security at all either since the plugins would continue to offer more options than core had, and if a plugin/theme is having WP 'override' the lightbox settings, then they did something really wrong...

    Part of why there are so many lightbox plugins is that some people want different behavior than others, and functionality is highly related to your theme and how IT displays content :/

    Do you have any suggestions for WooThemes Canvas?

    The "override" applies only to WP galleries. Everything else works fine.

    And therein lies the problems. I don't use WooThemes Canvas, and I've never had an issue with gallery overrides.

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-colorbox/ is the one I use on someone's site.

    You sure it works on galleries? Doesn't on my installation.
