The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 5.7
With VisualLightBox, creating slideshow presentations of your images for publishing them on your Website has never been easier. All you need to do is select the desired pictures and drag them into the VisualLightBox interface.
You can adjust the slideshow parameters such as delay interval, format template, thumbnails resolution, and more. After adjusting your settings, you just need to choose any of the five publishing methods: folder, FTP server, insert to a HTML page; generate a Joomla 1.5 or 2.5 module, or a Wordpress plugin.
One important feature is that besides dragging pictures to its interface, you can directly import them from Flickr, Photobucket, and Picasa. Another one is that it supports different image formats.
In short, the program is easy to operate; no special skills are required. On the downside, it lacks a picture editor, so if you need to retouch your images you should do it before publishing. The good thing is that it includes a varied template gallery with exceptional effects, where you can also include picture descriptions.
