Ability for clients to change lightbox image

Many of my websites include a lightbox gallery and it would be most helpful if the client could change the lightbox image once the website is live.

    We've launched the ability to connect the lightbox component to your CMS and Ecommerce photos and videos. This should make it easier for your clients to update lightbox galleries using the Editor. Read more about the release. Feedback or comments? Join the discussion in the forum.

    Very important ! We can't possibly keep updating our clients galleries from the Designer all the time...

    Yea, I'm just now trying to figure out how to get around this... frusterating. Would have been great for clients and developers alike.

    Lightbox is pretty much worthless to me unless this ability is put into place.

    We need this ability for clients.

     I really want to invest in this software long term but unless this feature is available I can't give my clients what they want. Please, do we have any idea whether this is likely to ever become available?

    My clients sell vehicles, and multiple photos that are easily uploaded/displayed is essential. If anyone has any useful solutions to this I would be eternally grateful.

    In my opinion, the solution from the admin response is not a good solution. It is a nice feature, but a rather bad workaround for the problem of this ticket.

    The editor should be able to change the lightbox image the same way, they exchange the thumbnail image. But I think, it would be acceptable to open the lightbox first and then see a button to exchange the image.
