Example – lightbox setup

Include library (CSS and JS files) to your page.

The Gallery as lightbox dialog, should be a child element of the document body

<div id="blueimp-gallery" class="blueimp-gallery">
    <div class="slides"></div>
    <h3 class="title"></h3>
    <a class="prev">‹</a>
    <a class="next">›</a>
    <a class="close">×</a>
    <a class="play-pause"></a>
    <ol class="indicator"></ol>

Create a list of links to image files, optionally with enclosed thumbnails and add them to the body of your webpage, before including the Gallery script:

<div id="links">
    <a href="images/banana.jpg" title="Banana">
        <img src="images/thumbnails/banana.jpg" alt="Banana">
    <a href="images/apple.jpg" title="Apple">
        <img src="images/thumbnails/apple.jpg" alt="Apple">
    <a href="images/orange.jpg" title="Orange">
        <img src="images/thumbnails/orange.jpg" alt="Orange">

Add the following JavaScript code after including the Gallery script, to display the images in the Gallery lightbox on click of the links:

document.getElementById('links').onclick = function (event) {
    event = event || window.event;
    var target = event.target || event.srcElement,
        link = target.src ? target.parentNode : target,
        options = {index: link, event: event},
        links = this.getElementsByTagName('a');
    blueimp.Gallery(links, options);

Enjoy lightbox gallery…
