    I'm redesigning my website and it's a straight forward HTML site. I usually put it together in Photoshop and then just slice everything up. Of-course, not the most efficient way of putting a site together by today's standards but I'm not a coder (i do know a little), I'm a designer. I would however like to use one of these scripts to display my work but I have no idea include how to incorporate what they give you into my site. Anybody know how I should prep my portfolio page in order to accommodate the script given? Any help or direction is appreciated. Thanks!

    You will just have to make a link in your photoshop pages to your "Lightbox" page and then the light box page would have to be made from the downloaded code

    If I understand you correctly, i link to the lightbox but then it will take the visitor out of my website environment. I don't really want them to leave the site but rather have it incorporated into the site. Keep the look and feel. Is this possible?

    Hi Eclipse, for my temporary portfolio page, I have large rectangular thumbnails of zoomed in screen shots. When you click on it, it opens up a screenshot (with a nice apple-esque reflection) in a lightbox window. And in the caption portion is a link with the title of the website.

    It's quite neat and I've gotten good comments.

    It was just something quick and dirty to get my portfolio online since I sent my resume out.

    Cheers.
