So with FooBox, viewers can click on a thumbnail and view the photographs on any screen, no matter what. The photograph will automatically resize itself to fit the screen. You can see a blue color scheme below.

There is built-in support for WordPress SEO, so no damage is done to your photography SEO efforts. In addition to the preset styling, you have the option to use custom CSS or Javascript to further enhance the functionality. If you are using the WordPress SEO plugin's Open Graph feature, a message inside the FooBox settings will show stating "The plugin WordPress SEO By Yoast has been detected, which includes support for OpenGraph meta tags already. The OpenGraph functionality from that plugin will be used instead."

The Lightbox features a slideshow function, so viewers can click, sit back and enjoy the show.

Last, but definitely not least, is the social sharing options. Pick the most important social channels, where you want them to display and instantly the FooBox will adjust. Here is a tweet example:
