The ie8Gallery is an ultra-small simple image gallery with a lightbox popup. This plugin helps you to create a cross browsers image gallery. It also supports older browsers (IE 8/9/10/11…) to show the images in a lightbox.

How to Create Image Gallery with Lightbox Popup

1. Load the jQuery, ie8Gallery‘s CSS, and JavaScript files into an HTML document.

<!-- jQuery -->
<script src=""></script>

<!--ie8Gallery CSS-->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="dist/css/ie8gallery.css">

<!--ie9Gallery JS-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="dist/js/ie8gallery.js"></script>

2. Create a div element that contains the thumbnails of your images. Your thumbnails should have data-img-src attribute that contains the original image size.

<div class="thumbs">
<img class="thumb" src="/thumbnail-url-here.jpg" data-img-src="/original-image-here.jpg" width="200">
<img class="thumb" src="/thumbnail-url-here.jpg" data-img-src="/original-image-here.jpg" width="200"></div>

3. Initialize the plugin in the jQuery document ready function.
