Of Course you can change the style, borders and colors! Go into the plugin-folder "nextgen-scrollGallery" there you will find a folder "css" and the "scrollGallery_greyDesign.css". Here you can add custom css designs, like the "scrollGallery_greyDesign.css". I recommend to copy your "scrollGallery_customDesign.css" in your theme folder. Because if you make a update of the plugin, the "css" folder will be replaced. After you save a css-file in this "css" folder, it will be possible to change the style of the gallery in the admin interface.

The dimensions of thumbnails and images can be changed in your NextGEN Gallery plugin.

Since version 1.5 the do_shortcode() function is supported and since version 1.6 you can use [sG_thumbsSolo id=xxx] and [sG_imagesSolo id=xxx] instead of [scrollGallery id=xxx] to show only thumbs or images.

Since version 1.7 it is possible to set links to thumbs and images. To set a link, go into your NextGen Gallery and edit the image descriptions. If you write: [scrollGallery thumblink="http://www.bmo-design.de" thumblink_target="_blank"] you will set an external link to my page, which will open in a new window (target="_blank"). Also you can set image links and image targets. Here's an example with all the possibilities: [scrollGallery imglink="http://www.bmo-design.de" thumblink="http://software.bmo-design.de" imglink_target="_self" thumblink_target="_blank"].
