This is the desired effect that I am ultimately after!
Here is my problem.
If I link a gallery through [catablog template="gallery"] - I can get that effect but - it will show my entire library - which is not what I want.
If I link individual galleries or categories [catablog_gallery id="2995"] or [catablog category ="tiles"] I can filter which images I link but they post in format that I am not interested in - which is the individual image description and title format and you have to scroll through all of the images.
It may be that I am missing something very obvious - I am not fully aware of code and such, I have been familiarizing myself with the tags but I still don't know enough to edit the template files.
Any help or link in the right direction will be greatly appreciated =]
