Shadowbox: Video and Image Viewers

Shadowbox is similar to the popular image viewer called Lightbox created by Lokesh Dhakar. Shadowbox caught our attention because of its ability to display quicktime videos and "embed" Youtube video code. Shadowbox was created by Michael J. Jackson.

Similar to Lightbox, the design and presentation is attractive and "sexy". When a user clicks an image, the entire page will darken and your image and video will be framed and cropped in a simple elegant animated style.

From a usability standpoint, it keeps the user on your site, and will stay on the page as long as they wish...very very nice.

Navigation is clean, simple and minimal just the way I like. Thanks MJ for sharing this application with us.

Fire it up!
