New Feature: Image Thumbnail "Lightbox"

Links that point to an image typically open that image in a blank page, leaving the previous page and forcing you to hit the "Back" button in your browser to return to the page you were previously viewing. The "Lightbox" effect adds a popup of the image instead, so when you click on a link to an image you see the image on the current page instead, in a cool popup overlay effect. And, in keeping with our "mobile-friendly" mantra, the lightbox popup has features specifically for a mobile device such as the Iphone: when you click on an image link and the overlay pops up, you can "swipe" the images left or right to view other such image links on that page.

This effect is automatically added to a live page; nothing is needed on the part of the person building the website. Note that like all effects or scripts on the page, you won't see this while you're editing the page.
