Sweet photos its Javascript!

Want to show people photos from your blog, or website, but don’t want to go with popping up windows, trying to dodge popup blockers, avoid iFrames, standalone pages… and do it all in a way thats still snazzy?

Check out Lightbox JS, which does all that, placing images above your current page, not within which in turn frees you from the constraints of the layout, particularly column widths.

It also keeps users on the same page as “clicking to view an image and then having to click the back button to return to your site is bad for continuity (and no fun!)”. Looks pretty sweet to me…

    Thats sweet man! Thinking about using something similar for a project I’m working on; I’m including a kind of photo album in a site I’m building currently and that stuff looks like exactly what I’m looking for.

    the script is pretty cool alright, might well implement it here along with some of my DA work, could be pretty good. wordpress is kind enough on the javascript front 😀

    I have a wordpress blog too; had it for a few months but only started working on it today. Any suggestions on how to customise it?

    Have you got a URL for it and I’ll give it a look? WordPress.com or under your own domain? I can give you a list of plugins to look for in terms of enhancing the blog alright, give you a few pointers in terms of customising the look and feel no problem if you’d like them… could call for a new post on doing up a wordpress blog!
