Meow Lightbox

Description

Lightbox built for photographers, by photographers 🙂 If you want to see how it performs, have a look at one of my post on my website, for example this one: Best Abandoned Places in Japan. Or with a gallery, in that case, any page on Haikyo.org. And here is the official page: Meow Lightbox.

IMPORTANT

By default, the selector is set for the classes ‘.entry-content, .gallery, .mgl-gallery’. If you need the Lightbox to be active for more selectors, you will need to update the settings. The plugin will apply the lightbox for images contained by the selector. For more information, please check the official page.

KEY FEATURES

  • Responsive Layouts. Looks great on mobile, tablets and bigger screens.
  • Responsive Images. Image resolution itself will adapt to the screen and device.
  • Display Image / EXIF information. Shutter speed, aperture, camera, lens.

PRO

Adds preloading and display a map for images with GPS coordinates.

GALLERY

We believe that choice of the gallery system depends on you. We however recommend you to use the Meow Gallery.

A great plugin for your gallery!

A must for your galleries! Easy to incorporate. Had a tiny issue at first setting up, but support is awesome, helpful and fast, so that was here and gone before no time.

Very nice Lightbox with Gallery

I have long searched for a gallery with lightbox that meets my requirements, e.g. META data. I can only recommend it to everyone.

What I would wish for the future would be a display of keywords (Lightroom).

Thank you very much for these nice plugins.
