To close the image I find it would be easier to click anywhere in the image, instead of on top right.

You can click anywhere outside of the image to close the image. The area within the image is dedicated to scrolling through the images.

Highslide is excellent, but is it possible to use on a phpbb 3.1.6 board?
Shy but working at it
