Lightbox Framework Add-In

A FREE Lightbox Widget for users of Expression Web 4

The Expression Extras Lightbox Framework is an Expression Web 4 add-in for creating lightbox widgets. This lightbox is based on the jQuery javascript library and the WAI WCAG 2.0/WAI ARIA ariaLightbox widget. Best of all, it’s free! (Psst...if you want to give a link back to this site that'd be great, but it's not required.)
