@pisenberg: Thanks for coming back and posting the solution. I've created an issue in our task list about wp-typography breaking NextGEN shortcodes so I can be sure we look at it, though I'm not sure exactly when that will be.
@JoshTT35, @tizz: to confirm, in the past, you could exclude images in the Manage Gallery tab and they would be excluded when displaying the whole gallery, but not when displaying singlepics. Now, if exclude is selected, they won't show as singlepics either. So that behavior has changed. Tizz has provided a work around, but we still need to decide if/when we're going to try and adjust this back to past behavior.
Is that a correct summary?
@JoshTT35: From what I can see above, the Thickbox issue for you is resolved now, correct?
@tizz: I just have to say you do an amazing job posting solutions, tips, and help for other NextGEN users. Kudos and thanks to you. I know we (the NextGEN team) always appreciate that, and obviously other users do as well. (Erick)
