How can I make a picture downloadable or larger to view by clicking on it?

I'm currently setting up a website for someone else, and this site will include at least one image.   In most websites I've looked at generally, you can left-click on on an image to view a larger version of it, assuming it isn't too small to permit that.  Alternatively, you can right click on the image to see a menu that includes the option to save the image to your device.   In the website I'm building, the images will mostly be just incidental to the overall business objective, but imagining myself as a potential client I feel it would be annoying to have images that can't be enlarged or downloaded.  It makes a website seem rather primitive.

Is there any way to do this in Squarespace?  I'd rather have this work by the user clicking on the image itself, rather than displaying a separate "Download" button.

Do you mean the lightbox feature of image?
