While sitting out on the back deck this gloriously beautiful Spring afternoon, I started looking at a new Mac backup utility named Persistance. I noticed that its screen images had that nice feature where when you clicked on them a new window would open showing a larger image against a black background. This effect has been around for some time – but seeing it again motivated me to add it to this blog – so I did.
Once those additions have been made to your templates, you can then start using Slimbox2 on your images – by including rel=”lightbox” in the reference tag. You can see the effect in action by clicking on any of the three images included in this post from my photo/painting outing with Don Neff.
Here’s another example – using a thumbnail of Don which, when clicked on, opens up to the larger image. Pretty cool!
There – now I’ve documented the change so when I try to remember how to use it again I can find this post easily!
