Caja de luz adaptable diseñada para fotógrafos que también muestran los datos EXIF. Esta caja de luz está optimizada y diseñada para ser muy rápida y elegante. Te encantará! Aprende más sobre ella aquí: Meow Lightbox.


  • Diseño adaptable. Se ve genial en móviles, tabletas y pantallas más grandes.
  • Imágenes adaptables. La resolución de la imagen se adaptará a la resolución de pantalla y el dispositivo.
  • Muestra imagen / información EXIF. Velocidad de obturación, apertura, camera, lentes.


Si quieres ver cómo funciona, hecha un ojo a estos ejemplos.


Creemos que la elección de la galería debe estar en tu mano. De todas maneras, nosotros recomendamos Meow Gallery.


Comprando la versión Pro nos dará soporte a nosotros y al desarrollo del plugin y además añade estas características:

  • Precarga: las imágenes cargarán más rápido (incluso instantáneamente) en la caja de luz.
  • Google Maps: si tu imagen tiene datos de GPS, el mapa estará disponible.
  • Enlazado profundo: permite compartir una URL que se abrirá directamente en la caja de luz con una imagen específica.
  • Pase de diapositivas: puedes empezar el pase de diapositivas desde la caja de luz.


Por defecto, el selector está configurado con las clases `.entry-content`, `.gallery` y `.mgl-gallery`. Si necesitas que la caja de luz esté activa en más selectores, tendrás que actualizar los ajustes. El plugin aplicará la caja de luz a las imágenes contenidas en el selector. Para más información, por favor, visita la página oficial.

Idiomas: Inglés y Español.

I tried several plugins, but Meow Lightbox was the winner for me. Lightweight, attractive, exposes EXIF data. What more could you want???

Initially there were conflicts with other plugins such as an advertising plugin that pulled up the lightbox instead of the URL of the ad. But once these were addressed it just works. Nothing fancy. Just works. Lightweight.

Tried many lightbox plugins but none of them are as good as Meow Lightbox. I require a lightbox which displays captions and is able to enlarge pictures. Only Meow Lightbox delivered. It is also very easy to set up. Very happy with the plugin.

In the past, I was using a WP media library plugin that had a built-in lightbox feature. It worked fine with any browser on a desktop computer, but on mobile devices, it was a hassle, the navigation was hidden and not really responsive at all as images had been cut off too. Luckily I did the research for a different gallery plugin and found Meow Gallery. The Meow Lightbox as an additional plugin is really a great add-on to the gallery. Meow Lightbox offers by far the most versatile settings to fine-tune the look and feel of my images on my WP site. I can choose from various themes, and I can make the lightbox work with my images, even if they are not used to be displayed by Meow Gallery. I can set up slideshows, block right clicks, enable download and bring social sharing to my images. I can incorporate many EXIF metadata to my images and decide which data should be shown means, for example, adding focal length, ISO, date, shutter speed, and so on independently. Meow Lightbox comes with a set of performance settings to speed up. Even a map that shows where images were taken (provided the photos have GPS coordinates stored in the EXIF data) can be displayed in a lightbox. But all the neat features would not count anything if the lightbox would not perfectly interact on all devices and sizes as Meow Lightbox does. I highly recommend evaluating Meow Lightbox and considering the pro version as I use it. Finally, a lightbox that really works and works for all devices.

I've been using this for several years now and it's the best lightbox plugin of all the ones I have tried. Simple yet powerful, clean, and fast. Cheers to the author for sharing!
