jQuery Lightbox plugin
Take the jQuery Lightbox plugin and animate your images into a Lightbox popup image window that gives your images a professional look. The jQuery Lightbox also has ‘previous’ and ‘next’ buttons allowing you to create a jQuery slideshow with your pictures and your users can cycle through the images as they animate into the center of the web page.

How does the jQuery Lightbox work?
To make the jQuery Lightbox plugin work best, you will need thumbnail images which you will insert into your web page. You can then link to the larger version of those images using the point to file icon in Dreamweaver. Then, connect the jQuery light box CSS file and Lightbox js scripts. A simple function written into the head of the web page will call the jQuery Lightbox and will animate the images into a stylish lightbox popup background.
If you have more than one thumbnail image on a page then the Lightbox will apply previous and next buttons and allow your web visitors to cycle through the images in a jQuery slideshow.
All of the information you need to create the jQuery light box are contained within the jQuery Lightbox video tutorial above.
