    i've been looking at this for ages. can anyone see why the grid images won't enlarge using thickbox correctly or why the slideshow doesn't work?

    The Lightbox plugin to enable the Lightbox effect in NextGen Gallery is actually deprecated, and replaced by the Slimbox Plugin by Giuseppe Argento.

    The official WordPress page for the plugin is here:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/slimbox-plugin/

    Just install the plugin, then, in the Gallery options, go to:

    Gallery >> Options >> Effects

    You can now choose "Lightbox," and it will work perfectly.

    thanks - still not sure why the original 'thickbox' approach doesn't work - i've used it numerous times on other WP sites.

    that's part of the problem fixed. now i need to figure out why the slideshow isn't working (i get the loading icon - see bottom of that test page - but then nothing)
    any ideas? thanks
