Confirmed: Doesn't work for me
By , for WP 3.8.1

Exactly as the user aaronfuzion has described, I had similar results. Just a black/dark overlay with no images and no ability to go back without using the browsers back button. I tested this on a new WP installation using a custom child theme that was very very clean. I probably won't be bothering with this plugin ever again, luckily I only spent about 5 minutes on it and moved on.

I am developing a custom version of someone else's theme. This plugin brings up the black overlay but doesn't display any pictures. Also, it won't close and return to the main page.

Bad image loading strategies
By ,

At first this plugins seemed hot cakes.
Than to find out there is actually NO image loading strategy.
The plugin loads all the images at once, no progressively downloading images while you browse the carousel.
So if you have more than 5 or so images... BEWARE!

Installed and used Media/Settings to try every option but the plugin doesn't make a scrap of difference to the standard WP gallery display.

Disappointing.

Update did not fix issues when in carousel
By , for WP 3.9.2

This use to work good until I updated to the last two versions. Maybe plugin conflict?
