WordPress Lightbox

The default behavior in WordPress when an image is clicked is to open another page of your blog.  Sometimes though, you want a more elegant solution.  One of the more trendy ways to open an image of the past few years has been using something called a lightbox.  A lightbox dims the screen via a modal window, and then displays your image.  If you would like something of this nature to be your default image behavior, check out Lightbox 2 (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/lightbox-2/).  Don’t just take my word for it though, try out this WordPress lightbox by clicking the image below.
