Uncluttered and easy to use

An easy-to-use lightbox plugin that looks good both on the backend and especially frontend. Styling is simple using CSS to suit any theme.

Tried many, ended up with this one!

I’ve tried many different lightbox apps including NGG and love this one. It works with the media library so no separate folder or duplicate images. The presentation is straightforward with enough options for my blog. Also like that the metadata for photos can be presented within the carousel.
