A simple, lightweight, responsive jQuery image lightbox plugin where the users are able to scroll through the enlarged images with navigation arrows just like a carousel.

Click on the thumbnails to open the lightbox. Click on the X button or press the ESC key to close the lightbox.

How to use it:

1. Load the stylesheet lightbox.css in the header, and the JavaScript lightbox.css after jQuery.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/lightbox.css">
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.min.js" 
        integrity="sha384-tsQFqpEReu7ZLhBV2VZlAu7zcOV+rXbYlF2cqB8txI/8aZajjp4Bqd+V6D5IgvKT" 
        crossorigin="anonymous">
</script>
<script src="js/jquery.lightbox.js"></script>

2. Load the necessary Font Awesome for the lightbox icons.

<link rel="stylesheet" 
      href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.6.3/css/all.css" 
      integrity="sha384-UHRtZLI+pbxtHCWp1t77Bi1L4ZtiqrqD80Kn4Z8NTSRyMA2Fd33n5dQ8lWUE00s/" 
      crossorigin="anonymous">

3. Add thumbnails and image links to the gallery.

<div id="gallery">

  <a href="1.jpg" class="gal_link">
    <img src="thumb-1.jpg">
  </a>
  <a href="2.jpg" class="gal_link">
    <img src="thumb-2.jpg">
  </a>
  <a href="3.jpg" class="gal_link">
    <img src="thumb-3.jpg">
  </a>
  ...

</div>

4. Initialize the lightbox plugin and done.

(function($){
  
  $(document).ready(function(){
    
    var galLink = $("a.gal_link");
    
    galLink.lightbox();
    
  });
  
})(jQuery);
