A research conducted by concluded using an image lightbox on your ecommerce store can increase conversions.

But what is an image lightbox?

An image lightbox is created using JavaScript and enlarges product images to full-screen. When the image is enlarged, the background dims which enhances the product image even more.

Created in 2009, Magic Thumb is fully responsive (resize your browser window to see) and displays all product images one after another. Activate this CubeCart lightbox by hovering the main product image or directly from the thumbnail images.

Combine Magic Thumb with Magic Scroll to contain product image thumbnails and stop them spreading down your product page.

Download Magic Thumb free trial for your store, CubeCart 5/6 or CubeCart 3/4, and enjoy over 40 customizations. If you need a zoom and lightbox extension, try Magic Zoom Plus, and enjoy 70 customizations!

Magic Thumb lightbox uses your original product images - you don't need to upload new images to create the JavaScript lightbox effect. We recommend that your large images are 400-600px height. The module will automatically resize your images to create thumbnails. Choose the size of your image thumbnails in the settings.ini file.

This CubeCart lightbox module can enlarge images or movies on click or on hover. The enlarge will fit the image to the full browser screen, providing your images are large enough. Magic Thumb uses JavaScript and CSS to create the effect and there are more than 50 options to customize the tool just how you want it. Change the speed, duration, effect, borders, colors, text and many more things. As it uses JavaScript, it works on all major browsers and on iPhone / iPad.
