    Now when I have ONE image, or a collection of images, I can use Lightbox on it, and it opens up the picture, and dims everything else around it. It works, it great, its awesome, no complaints.

    But lets say I have... 50 images and I make a "Gallery" ... How in the world do I use lightbox now if the only thing that the thing spits out is

    [gallery]

    Check out the nextgen plugin for wordpress. It allows you to use lightbox for galleries as well as several other javascript effects. It will allow you to group a set of images into an album, then in lightbox click through to each with arrows.

    Here is the plugin
    Code:

    A word of advice any time you try to do anything with WordPress that gives you a hard time search for a plug-in, people make these for all kinds of obscure crap!
