Blogger Introduces LightBox

Last night Marcos Almeida, a Software Engineer from Google announced that Google has introduced LightBox with Blogger.

Lightbox is a whole new way to interact with photos. When clicked, the images on your blog would now expand into a shiny new overlay that displays them at their full size for optimal viewing. Once an image is opened in the LightBox view, any other images from the same post will now appear as thumbnails along the bottom, which can be easily browsed by clicking the arrow keys on the left or right side of the LightBox.

Marcos said that the LightBox feature is automatically enabled for all blogs, which means you can see the LightBox view in action right now by clicking one of the images below.

Although if you have custom-coded your image HTML so that images function as hyperlinks, then the LightBox view will not display and your original image hyperlink will work as expected just like it is on The Chronicles of R.

Your images never looked better!
