@drye: This seems to be a common misconception about the ImageGallery. The templates that come with it are not by any means intended for use in the final production of your site. They're merely there to get you started and show you the basic template controls. You're free to handle the output of the gallery any way you want.
Of course, Not a misconception on my part, I just have no need for any of the thumbnails, controls, or any of the ImageGallery support really. And yes there is that pesky issue of JS conflicts :)
But my current slide show is not perfect, thus why I asked how yours is coming along. I figure I can style it anyway I see fit, what I meant by asking if I could achieve similar results with the slide show you are working on is the controls available, the navigation at the bottom, and transition effects. None the less, I believe I will give your ImageObjectManager a try to drive the data to my current show.

Got it working well! Thanks heaps for all your recent work UncleCheese.
I am using this module to create a website planning page that we can use with new clients. Just a couple of questions:
1: How would I go about getting an email sent whenever a new dataobject is added? ie, if they add an document to a page it sends me an email letting me know.
2: Is there a way to have the date set in the popup automatically to 'Todays' date so we can order additions by date added? I tried:
$todaysdate = date('d/m/Y');
return new FieldSet(
new CalendarDateField('Date', 'Date', $todaysdate),
But it didnt seem to work - date field remained blank
3: I have a FileDataObjectManager and a DataObjectManager on the same pagetype on different tabs, how can I set different things for the manager of each ie: $manager->setPluralTitle('Documents'); for one and $manager->setPluralTitle('Comment'); for the other?
