Click here to see Light Box demo on Blogger.com blog

You can use the left and right arrow key to change the image and Esc to close Light Box. If you want to make more than one set (album) of images in same page change the album name in the other set. The difference between in both the set (album) is you can’t change the image without closing the image viewer (Light Box)
