Basically, Lightbox is a popular name for script that allows us to show a larger version of a small image (thumbnail) in a pop-up window. The idea is to show a collection of several small images (thumbnails) and allow visitors to see a larger version of any image by clicking on the smaller image. Furthermore, after seeing a larger version of the first image, visitor can continue browsing the larger versions of other images from the set without leaving the Lightbox mode. The next or previous image from the set will be shown after clicking on the right or left navigation arrow or after swipe on the screen from right to left or from left to right (on touch screens).
Like the older version of this module, Hot Responsive Lightbox will create thumbnails from your images. All you need to do is to upload the images and enter the path (relative to your Joomla) in module parameters.

Together with Hot Responsive Lightbox Joomla module, you will also get Responsive Lightbox Joomla plugin. The plugin has the same parameters, share the same code and can be used for the similar purposes as the module. However, as you probably know, there's difference between Joomla modules and plugins. The modules must be placed in the module positions only. On the other hand, the plugins can be used directly in articles. So, in order to include this plugin anywhere in your article content, you should enter this short code:
Please remove the asterisks (*) from the above sample. Also, path to your images folder should be relative, in example "images/gallery".
