This is a free and cool WordPress plugin that will automatically open you photos on posts and pages in a “Lightbox” effect where it dims the screen down and displays your photo at full size.
Once you activate this plugin you don’t have to remember any code or HTML — just add your photos and it will do the rest.
So instead of your web site guests clicking on a photo and then having to hit the back button to get back to your web site; they are presented with an awesome effect and then a “pop up” window effect of the photo. If you have a series of photos on a page you will be able to click through the photos in the same pop up window.
In your Dashboard go to Plugins/Add New and search for Always Valid Lightbox and then click on install.
