Shutter Reloaded Plus

Darkens the current page and displays an image (like Lightbox, Thickbox, etc.), but is a lot smaller (8KB) and faster.

Shutter Reloaded Plus is an image viewer for your website that works similarly to Lightbox, Thickbox, etc. but is under 8KB in size and does not require any external libraries.

It is fully responsive, cross-browser and mobile ready. Tested on Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Android phones and tablets, Windows Phone 8.

It has many features:

  • keyboard navigation with arrow keys, left and right arrows, and close by pressing the Esc key
  • resizing large images if the window is too small to display them with option to show the full size image
  • combining images in sets
  • redrawing the window after resizing, RESPONSIVE
  • pre-loading of neighbour images for faster display and very good browser compatibility
  • integrate with Google Analytics to count each image view as a page view
  • option to overwrite NextGen Gallery's effects (Lightbox, Fancybox)
  • option to display a like button for the current page in the control bar
  • click on the image goes to the next image
  • click outsite de image to close de slideshow
  • all images used for buttons are in a PNG sprite, so it only has 3 HTTP request (image, js and css)
  • option to only load it on single pages and posts

This plugin offers customization of the colour and opacity settings for the background and colour for the caption text, buttons text and the menu background.

There are options to enable it for all links pointing to an image on your site (with option to exclude some pages), or just on selected pages. It can be enabled only for image links with CSS class="shutter" with option to create a single set or multiple sets for each page.

The plugin can also "auto-make" image sets for each Post, so when several posts are displayed on the "Home" page, links to images on each post will be in a separate set. See the built-in help for more information.
