A lightbox popup is a web form that appears on top of the page window that you are browsing. When an image for example is displayed in the overlaying window, visitor will still be able to navigate on the web page with the keyboard without closing the popup. The outside area in the page is dimmed out.  If we click outside the lightbox, the popup will be closed.
