Click on images for individual close-up

Recommended Posts

I have what seems like a simple request: I'd like to create a gallery page where you can click on each image and have it open as a separate image for a closer look. I've tried using image blocks, a gallery page template, and a gallery block within a regular page, and don't seem to figure it out.

Can someone enlighten me please?

Thanks in advance!!

Meanwhile I discovered Lightbox and where to activate it, thank you! Is it possible to have a caption underneath the image only when its in Lightbox? 

Do you use 7.0 or 7.1?

If 7.1, follow this guide

Is there any way I can offer a close up of images? I have lightbox and that works great but my site is for artwork and viewers will want to look closely at details.

Thanks in advance

If you don't mind using a 3rd solution, I am the author of Pinchzoom plugin that can help your customer to zoom into your picture, kindly take a look at the live editor here

nit: you can preview what it's like on your site without purchasing, please give me your site URL
