I found that popular lightbox plugins on TF were PrettyPhoto, Colorbox and Fancy lightbox. Probably, prettyPhoto is the most popular one.

Could anyone please help me to figure it out advantages and disadvantages of each one? And why people prefer to use prettyPhoto? Does it because top themes like Avada, uDesign use it?

Thank you.

Been using View.js in my recent themes. I would think most people do because of the popular themes, and because it’s not too difficult/plenty of tutorials for it.

Thanks for sharing. I saw it in your Folo theme. But I think I need only a free plugin. :)

prettyPhoto last update was a long time ago. On my recent themes I’m using this one http://dimsemenov.com/plugins/magnific-popup/
It seems to do everything that’s needed even on mobile devices.

Thank you, Pirenko. The plugin you recommend sounds very interesting. I’ll consider using it. dimsemenov is also the author of famous Royal Slider, so I think his lightbox plugin should be good as his slider plugin. ;)
