Which reminds me: Has anyone seen a Lightbox-type script that resizes to accommodate the photo and
the caption/button area all at once? I find that extra stretch after the photo has already loaded distracting and unnecessary -- sort of like the extraneous visual effects in Windows XP, most of which I have turned off. Otherwise, the effect is great.
Hmmm ... I just noticed this option on the Slimbox page:
animateCaption: Boolean; set it to false to disable the caption animation.
Does the caption area still trail behind the image with that option disabled? I don't care if the caption itself arrives late, I just want to get the box resize operations over with in one shot.
It's interesting that the examples I've seen always have a white border around the image. That happens to be my preferred style, so I'm already predisposed to like the Lightbox effect.
