very poor non-responsive plugin with zero support
By , for WP 4.4

Plugin is not responsive and thus unusable on mobile devices.
Support does not exist. I wrote on the support forum twice - author even did not bother to reply.

Great for Free
By , for WP 4.3.1

Considering that it's a free plugin the featureset is great. However, even doing something as simple in the CSS as having the image float to the right of the text seems to prevent it from generating the popup. This makes it unusable for my site.

Great for images, couldn't make it work for videos
By , for WP 4.3.1

I keep receiving an error that says "This content failed to load" when trying to load a YouTube video. I found some other reports in the forum of people having the same problem, but no solution.

Also noticed a blue line around the image, except when using the Overtext style.

Good

Do not crush with Photonic
Helped me twice

In older version there was option to resize image to full size, Do not see it in new version.

Good but

I needed this specifically to load an image into a light box from the widget area. This for some reason wont do this :(

Works good if you only have one inline lightbox.
By , for WP 4.2.2

Works good if you only have one inline lightbox on your page. I added some custom html which is scrollable. When I open the next lightbox it opens already scrolled down, instead of starting from the top. I've initiated a support ticket but support seems terrible. I can see so many questions with no replies.

Confusing, gets struck
By , for WP 4.2.2

If you have images with different sizes, controls will constantly be on differnet positions.
Next link does not always work.
There are many settings, which are extremely confusing. (The help text is not written very well).
Overall not as pretty as a lightbox.
I deleted the plugin.
