    @bigwavemaui – If you are referring to the Lightbox Effect as “displayed full sized” then you may need to go to the Lightbox library author to display the additional information. We include the current Lightbox libraries with NextGEN Gallery as a convenience but we do not offer support for their modification / enhancement.

    As to the EXIF details themselves, those would be within the image being displayed and may be able to be picked up by the Lightbox library, otherwise you might look in the imagebrowser-exif.php template for some pointers.

    Hi Cais,

    Thank you very much for the reply!

    I had started to hit this problem hard, getting Exif info to display when a thumbnail in my Nextgen gallery gets clicked along with a full sized image, and it looks like you have saved me wasting a bunch of time.

    First, I should forget about copying the templet imagebrowser-exif.php from
    to my child theme folder and then modify it and somehow get it to replace the existing single image layout. I see the exif table in the code and was hoping I could just copy and insert it somewhere and hopefully the info would show.

    So, I’m looking at the directory and files here:

    Is any of this stuff open for modification? Is this even the correct place I should be examining?

    I’ll contact the lightbox author: unless I’m mistaken it looks like Janis Skarnelis did the work in 2010. Would you have a link to Skarnelis webspace.

    Thanks again! I really love the plugin, I just discovered how powerful tags are, and exif info display is the only thing I need to switch over my stand alone gallery to Nextgen.

    @bigwavemaui – The Lightbox libraries, if they need to be modified, would need to be modified in their existing folders/files at this time (keep a back-up as those changes will be over-written with every update).

    As to the library author, the details within the library itself would be our most recent information that we have available for that specific library. It appears is still resolving so I would look to that site and the support they are offering there for the Fancybox library.
