I bought this product about a month ago. I design sites, and lot of clients want lightbox galleries on their site. Lightbox isn't overly hard to work with, but at the price Visual Lightbox costs I thought this it might be a worthwhile time saver. It definitely has proven to be. The program is laid out very well, and it's very easy to use. You can build great looking galleries very quickly.

Lightbox settings are pretty accessible through the interface, but there are a few things I would like more control over. EG add as many settings for configuring thumbnail size/specs as there are for the enlargements. While the simple interface is great, it would be nice to have something like an 'advanced' section in each step so you could access a few more settings.

Overall I am very happy though. I have email support with a few questions, and they have been very quick to reply. The program is a big time saver.

Version 2.3

One addition to my review. One thing I do NOT like about the product is that it technically shouldn't be listed as free on here. The free version adds a visuallightbox.com watermark that you can't remove unless you upgrade. It's also not free for business use. So the free application download is not fully functional, which in my opinion classifies it as a demo or shareware.

Yes, agreed. Demo it is, thanks for the info.


Not to mention, if you haven't found out already, you have to renew the payment for it every year. Find THAT clearly spelled out in the documentation!...
