I have now tested both this and the easylightbox extension and I have to agree with Roco Clothing, much more destinct and elegant, works out of the box no fuzz. With the other one you could expect it to work with their own Magento Classic Free theme but not, I had to adjust the css to really get it on top.
There are 2 things I noticed though that might can be addressed in a future release:
1. The bottom part of the image gets hidden behind the extentions toolbar, which may or may not become an annoyance, depending on what's important on the image. On the positive side the toolbar can have its opacity adjusted but it may not always be enough. An option for this would be welcommed.
2. When browser use a lower resolution e.g. 1024x768 and the max for big image is set to same dimmension, or even 800x600 in this case, the top of the extension, including the X button disappears "above" client window top marging and behind the browser toolbar. I have only tested this in FF 3.6 though.
Otherwise this extension have all the settings needed to make it fit well in with any site and works as advertized also in 184.108.40.206 so final verdict can be nothing less than 5 stars.

This nice and easy to use extension is part of all Magento webshops I published. In my opinion this extension should be part of the Magento core! Thanks for building and publishing this extension for free!

Hi - I tried to go to your website to get technical support, as you told a few other people but it seems to be in a different language...
The lightbox works just fine, except when I have a very small color swatch - then it breaks. The text ('image 2 of3') covers the whole image and it freezes, not allowing me to go forward, backward or close it completely.

Great extension but I'm having a few problems. Base image are re-sized and stretched when they are smaller than maximum base size and it makes them looks pixelated and doesn't look at good. How can I keep original size if smaller than base image size in config?
Also, I'd like the images to show their real size in the lightbox, once again they are stretched for no reason and doesn't look good.

It extension causes problem in SYSTEM>CONFIGURATION page. I installed this extension on my Magento version 1.3 site. The frontend works fine. However, the system configuration page become blank. I re-installed this extension twice and still get the same problem. I have to uninstall this extension in order to gain access to system configuration page again. Does anyone know what goes wrong?

Install on a 1.4.1 Magento - no problem with IE, but Firefox and Google Chrome are not displayed correctly.
The sizes are not correct in Firefox, and with google Chrome the second pic is completely messed up.
