NACHO Lightbox is an awesome Wordpress plugin which helps you showcase images, videos and galleries. It is directly integrated into the Wordpress editor, and it will work with your older posts. Easily customizable using the shortcode generator.
Intuitive and user-friendly options panel.
Don’t like the shortcode generator? Hyperlinking images and videos will open them in a lightbox. Also, galleries can be created using the default Media Manager in the editor.
CSS3 SkinsThe plugin features two beautifully crafted skins with CSS3 font icons.
The plugin includes a responsive grid with an adjustable number of columns so that your images look perfect on mobile, tablet and desktop.
Sharp graphics on any device. The lightbox will adapt to the screen which are you using, so it will look different in portrait and landscape mode.
The plugin allows you to change images using intuitive navigation. On desktop computers, most users will prefer the keyboard arrows, while on mobile they will want to swipe to the next image like in a native application. The plugins supports both of them.
I would give this plugin six stars if I could. I purchased several lightbox plugins trying to find one that had all of the advanced features that I needed for my project. This one is by far the best one out there. It offers a rich set of advanced features not see in any other lightboxes. The developer is very responsive to feature requests and the support is above and beyond what I expected!
By far the very best Lightbox Plugin!
Excellent Lightbox Plugin, elegant and stylish yet well built and feature rich. Updates are plentiful and support is good.
