    Hi all, Seen a lot of sites lately that when you click on a thumbnail the screen dims and what looks like a flash image is displayed. When you click close the image fades away and the screen brightens again - such as http://www.excesapp.com/

    Does anyone now where we could find a resource that we let us integrate this into our sites - we develop in ASP / HTML etc and a little Flash

    Thanks

    that would be javascript, If I'm not mistaken.
    edit: I checked the page source, it javascript.
    edit edit: Just reverse engineering the site a bit, if you can do it javascript, I can get you what looks like to be a bulk of the javascript that does the effect. though I'm not sure it'll be all of it, I don't know javascript, I only code for desktop apps.

    There are numerous free implementations of this. One is lightbox.

    It is lightbox. Look in the source as Rokem said. They are also using the JavaScript framework by Prototype and effects by script.aculo.
