Title: intergrated AJAX Greybox image viewer
Post by: Sin Nombre on June 26, 2008, 05:42:16 PM
4images is amazing and really flexible it's one, if not the best image gallery cms i've ever seen and used,
but as more and more sites move to more flashy web 2.0 applications i think there should be some intergration of the Greybox image viewer.
for those who don't know what i am talking about here are a few links with examples.

It goes by 3 different names (greybox, lightbox, thickbox) but its all the same:
its a simple, unobtrusive script used to overlay images on the current page. It's a snap to setup and works on all modern browsers.
It acts like a pop-up but is powered by AJAX and is very light and best of all never encounters complications with pop-up blockers as the pop-up stays in the window.
if you confused on what i mean refer the example links above.
maybe there was a post on this before me or maybe this is on the bottom of the list of future features but i thought i'd bring it up.
it would make a great nice flashy fresh way to view images. it could be an alternative running along side as a link under the thumbnails.

just a suggestion...
