Lightbox JS – Floating Images JavaScript

Lightbox JS is a simple piece of JavaScript that allows you to place images above the page rather than within. A thumbnail image can be clicked on to show the full size image ontop of the page which remains darkened in the background. Closing the overlayed image brings the webpage back to normal, the user never leaves the current page.
 
It’s a very neat solution that works on all modern browsers. Unfortunately I can’t show it here because Spaces doesn’t allow JavaScript but there’s a working example along with the script at the Lightbox site. The idea is currently being developed by Lokesh Dhakar, here’s his blog Huddle Together.

  4. Hello (no name), it sounds like you need a quick fix. Here are a couple of things you can look at that also avoid a slow learning curve. I’m presuming you’re using a Windows system.

     
    Mixere is a free, open-source application for mixing audio files. It runs on Windows NT/2000/XP, and supports WAV, AIFF, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, Flac, and Mod audio files.
     
    Gungirl Sequencer is a nice simple soundfile sequencer from Richard Spindler and it’s free (Windows, Linux). You’ll need to mix loops with the same BPM.
     
    There’s a list of resources at Free Sounds – Audio Samples & Loops.
      
    On the subject of mixing you may enjoy some of the fun online remixing tools at the Museum of Sound Toys. You could even use one of the devices to create a short mix by recording the audio output of your computer.
