This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



This plugin uses Picbox to overlay images on the current page.
Picbox is a javascript image viewer that tries to be a bit nicer than all the other lightbox clones,
and is designed so it handles larger images with ease. It will automatically scale down images to the browser’s
screen size, which can then be zoomed into and moved around.
