Chapter 13 - LightBox
The LightBox turns your website into a powerful interactive tool, allowing visitors to make a selection of images which they can then send to you, adding comments if they wish.
If selling is enabled, the LightBox can also be used as a shopping cart so you can sell from your website.
You must have the LightBox option in your price plan to use the LightBox.
