About DirectResize

Direct Resize for Revo is a plugin to apply lightbox style image expansion to selected or all images on the website. You can specify which images to apply the effect to either by id or location. The plugin includes options for Highslide, colorbox or prettyPhoto. Similar to lightbox / slimbox but with a few nice features, the image will expand to the viewable screen area with the option to expand to full size. The styling on the popup images can be changed and the captions are picked up from the image title or alt text.
