This is a real gem in the vast market of pop-up extensions. Its customizations are really very well thought and most useful. The only drawback is the emphasis on "heavy" designs. I prefer the lean and clean layouts which are also there but perhaps a bit under - represented.
Altogether the best Lightbox extension I know. Gives more individuality to your site
