Light On : Blogger Lightbox is back !

If you own a blog in blogger, then you must have noticed that a few week back, images were opened in a lightbox (a small box appearing on the center of the window, with the background faded out). This feature was removed temporary after users complained that they would like to use their own implementations of the same and many bugs were reported.

Now it is back, with an option to enable/disable it. If you don't have implemented one by yourself, you'll see that the images are now opened in a lighbox. If you already have one, then better disable it from the settings page. The lightbox loads all images from a blog post and lets readers browser through them using the keyboard shortcuts (arrow keys).

Original post blogger blog:
When we enabled a brand new photo viewing experience, called Lightbox, by default a few weeks ago, we heard from a number of Bloggers who preferred to use their own, previously installed Lightbox solution, or who simply wanted to continue blogging without the new feature.
Thanks to your feedback, we turned Lightbox off temporarily, and we’re re-launching it today with the option to disable it, along with a handful of fixes to bugs that you reported.
To learn more about Lightbox and how it works, check out the original blog post or visit the Blogger Help Center.
If you’d like to disable Lightbox on your blog, log in to Blogger and select “No” next to Lightbox in the Settings | Posts and Comments section (new interface) or the Settings | Formatting section (old interface).
