IMPORTANT. By default, the selector is set on ‘.entry-content’. If your theme doesn’t use it, you need to update the plugin options. The plugin will then look for images surrounded by links and apply the lightbox. When you insert images in your posts, make sure the “Link To” is set to “Media File” or to “Attachment Page”. For more information, please check the official page.

Great solution

Definitely a great, clean, and simple solution for photographers.
I purchased the pro and beside some issue about how to manage the code all was fine!

Must have for Photographers

For quite some time I was looking for exactly this. A lightbox plugin capable to show exif data beside the image. The design looks nicely arranged. Camera, lens, focal length, aperture, exposure time and ISO are displayed as well as title and caption.

The team behind the plugin is incredible. I shared some ideas for improvement. Within minutes I received an answer, within some days the update was published. Great work!

The plugin is still new, but already a must have for photographers! I am really looking forward to seeing all the developments that will be coming!


Great Looking Lightbox

New to the game but has already replaced my existing Lightbox solution (Fancybox). Looking forward to new features, but good for most sites as it is.
