How to Set up a Lightbox Overlay


Picreel lets you promote special offers or convey your message in an obvious way through lightbox overlays.


For beginners, a lightbox overlay is an overlay that appears on top of the page’s content while it dims the rest of the webpage and makes it inactive. Thus, attracting the full attention of website visitors to the overlay.


Lightbox overlay helps you unlock the following benefits:
