Fairly good
By , for WP 4.2.1

It works good out of the box for the most part.

However in my themes, I add position:relative; in a universal selector. This plugin didn't like that. For anyone else who encounters this situation (and perhaps the developer could look at including this too), add this line of CSS to your theme or child theme's stylesheet:
#fancybox-wrap{position:fixed !important;top:50% !important;left:50% !important;transform:translateY(-49%) translateX(-50%) !important;}

Also, there seems to be a lack of user customisable settings. For example, I want to change the opening of the lightbox from a zoom to a fade, and I want to disable mouse wheel scrolling. There doesn't appear to be any form of settings page for me to be able to change these things, apologies if I simply haven't looked hard enough.

All in all it's quite good. The skin for the lightbox suits WordPress well and the functionality is good, it loads the images fast and does all the basic lightbox functions well.

Nice

Easy to use

Settings are built into the Media Settings, which is sort of handy, but the Media Panel is getting rather large if you have other plugins that are also adding settings to the Media Panel.

Works great

I use this plugin on a lot of site's works like a charm!

Only side note is that it doesn't play really nice when using SSL/https but I'm sure this will be fixed in one of the upcoming versions.

Great and simple

Great plugin, but it would be very helpfull if it can generate a thumbnail for the pdf link's too.
