I have added this code to my image gallery to include another image in the lightbox gallery its works perfectly apart from the config settings don't change the 'normal' size of the image (when it pops up). It just appears full size!
How do I do this please?

<% if CoverImage %>
<div id="MainImage"><a id="ViewLink" rel="lightbox" class="lightbox" title="$AlbumTitle" href="$CoverImage.URL"><% control CoverImage.SetWidth(250) %>
               <img src="$URL"<% end_control %>alt="$AlbumName"/></a><p>$MainImageTitle</p></div>
<% end_if %>

Look at your href:


You're linking to the original image, with no resampling. Don't you want something like $CoverImage.SetWidth(500).URL?

IT doesn't work it just shows .URL on the front end and the link is broken. I tried the other way around .URL first still not luck. Do you know another way? many thanks!

<% control CoverImage %><% control SetWidth(500) %>$URL<% end_control %><% end_control %>

That works great thank you!

for any one else who needs it this is how my code looks in

<a id="ViewLink" rel="lightbox" class="lightbox" title="$MainImageTitle.XML" href="

<% control CoverImage %><% control SetHeight(500) %>$URL<% end_control %><% end_control %>
"><% control CoverImage.SetWidth(250) %>
               <img src="$URL"<% end_control %>alt="$AlbumName" title="$AlbumName"/></a>
