LightBox PHP - CodeCanyon Item for Sale


Ad: Bluehost hosting

The LightBox PHP Script is a simple yet powerful script that allows you to make a lightbox (meant in Photographic way out of a directory of photos.

You can use it to allow a client to preview, and eventually download a series of shots and to choose and download only the ones he likes.

Just DROP your images in to a directory and USE IT! No XML, SQL or anything else needed!

No thumbnails or preview files will be created into the source directory because the script generates them on the fly.

Just one line of code setup! no programming skills are required! Blue and Dark themes provided but easily customizable for suit client’s requirements.

Please note that the script will NOT work as Wordpress/Joomla!/Drupal (or similar) plugin or under a website running on one of the mentioned scripts.

Also, note that the script will display JPG photos only!

Please, if you consider buying (or you did buy it) leave me a feedback/vote thus I can improve my script for any future release! :)
