Lightbox

A lightbox gallery initially displays just the first image, much like if you had inserted an inline image into the page. However, if you click that image, a lightbox overlay opens up showing you a large gallery that covers the whole viewport. You can apply any regular settings to that gallery.

 

GRID + Lightbox

This gallery setup (click on the images to the right to enlarge the settings) is a great way for the creative to showcase a large body of portfolio work.  Images are shown without any cropping, simultaneously contained on one page and can be viewed with one sweep of the eye.  The observer then only has to click on a picture that takes their fancy to open the image in a fullscreen lightbox overlay.  They're then free to scroll through the rest of your images at full resolution.
