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.
