    Feature Request to the Dev Team: please create a lightbox widget for photos. Currently only the Product lightbox is available.

    Before raising this Randy, I would just like to check if I am correct in what your idea is. You would like to be able to add a widget, like product lightbox widget is added to the form, which would in turn make all Image Fields and other image widgets images shown in a lightbox?

    I ask since that would require quite a lot of changes to various widgets, so it would be much simpler to create one widget instead - sort of an image gallery lightbox widget?

    I just imagined that an all encompassing image lightbox would be able make any image field appear in lightbox format when clicked. I never knew the complexities involved until you explained it to me. 

    On that note, please cancel my feature request.

    My intention was not to discourage you Randy, just to see what you had in mind.

    As such I will still raise it as a widget that shows images in any widget or image filed within its lightbox frame to our team working with widgets. It might happen that they have some idea or make it possible at some later time.

    If it happens, they will update you about it here.
