    I'm well on my way with css customizations, now all I need is to change the thumbnail sizes.
    WordPress creates these in 60x60px, yet SM Gallery gives me 100x100px thumbs.
    How do get SM Gallery to use the default thumb size?
    And who's creating those 100x100 thumbs on my site? I have set 60px in settings and in the functions.php!!

    the 100x100 thumbs are created by the plugin since WordPress codex highly recommends that you not "mess with" the existing thumbnails. You should be able to find in the code where the thumbnais are created but I'm not sure exactly how you would customize them from the plugin. I'll have to think on that one.

    The purpose of this plugin was to be "plug and play" no options, just turn it on and have a nicer gallery. My first thought is to add a shortcode option that lets you choose a "default thumbnail" instead of the custom thumbnail. Now the plugin will require documentation for that feature too. You may have to give us a little more time for that one.

    Don't forget if you change any thumbnail sizes you have to use a plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/ to remake all the thumbnails at the new size.

    100x100 is WP's default thumb size, I think.
    No need for special settings - just use the default size. If someone uses 200x200, then he needs to fix the css of the thumb-list div.

    Or set the size using css in the list items, that way we're flexible and the plug-and-play user still gets the ez-pz solution.

    I guess I'll need to hack your plugin since I'm in a bit of a rush, and I also need the ad-prev-image/ad-next-image buttons to float outside the image area :-/

    honestly if your not attached to using pictures from the media library, I'd consider the ubillboard plugin for slideshows:
    http://code.udesignstudios.net/uBillboard/

    Its awesome, we have used it on dozens of projects.

    Hehe :)
    Nope. I need EXACTLY what you've done.
    Simple for the end-user (upload, then insert gallery), Big image at the top, thumbs at the bottom.
