Just another jQuery gallery lightbox plugin for displaying multiple images in a popup box that has the ability to auto resize the popup according to the height of your images. With centerOnResize option, the plugin will center the popup box when you resize the browser window. Ajax content and DOM element content are supported as well.

How to use it:

1. Include the required resources in the Html document.

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="js/popup2.2.js"></script>

2. Create the html for an image gallery and use name attribute to specify the source of large image that will be displayed in the popup box. All the images with the same CSS class and title attribute will be linked into the navigation structure of this gallery.

<div> 
<img src="img/thumb-1.jpg" name="img/1.jpg" class="popup" title="Gallery" longdesc="Html Description Goes Here" /> 
<img src="img/thumb-2.jpg" name="img/2.jpg" class="popup" title="Gallery" longdesc="Html Description Goes Here" /> 
<img src="img/thumb-3.jpg" name="img/3.jpg" class="popup" title="Gallery" longdesc="Html Description Goes Here" />

...
</div>

3. Call the plugin and set the options.

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
$(".popup").popup({
transparentLayer : true,
gallery : true,
galleryTitle : "Gallery1 Title",
imgaeDesc : true,
galleryCounter : true,
imageDesc : true,
autoSize : true,
boxHeight : 600,
boxWidth : 500,
shadowLength : 0,
transition : 0,
onOpen : function() {
console.log("opened the box .popup");
},
onClose : function() {
console.log("closed the box .popup");
}
});
});
</script>

4. All the options with default values.

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
$(".popup").popup({
transparentLayer      : true,             // would you like a transparent layer underneath the popup?
transparentOpacity    : 70,               // set the opacity percentage of the transparent layer
gallery               : false,            // set true for navigation options between popups of the same title attribute
galleryCounter        : false,            // add a counter for gallery
titleHeight           : 30,               // height in pixels of the gallery title box
controlHeight         : 40,               // height in pixels of the gallery navigation box

transition            : 500,              // transition speed from one box to the next
