Sorry if this has already been covered but did not find anything so far.
Is it possible to have a set of images appear in the lightbox from a single thumbnail (not in there own album). I know it is using lightbox scripts normally. But can this be done using the ImageGallery Module?

If there is a Lightbox that supports this, you should create a new UI plugin for ImageGallery so that we can all use it!

I don't have the skills to create a new UI plugin, unfortunately.
Maybe I haven't been specific enough.
Currently ImageGallery uses rel="shadowbox[gallery]" to link the images when they pop up in to a set.
What would be useful is if you could choose and change the [gallery] part which links them.
So each thumbnail just has rel="shadowbox" and opens on its own. Then you could choose when you desire a set, these images would then become rel="shadowbox[set1]". However the images would not be visible as thumbnails only the first one.
<a href="photos/one.jpg" rel="lytebox[set1]" title="Blah blah blah! caption"><img src="photos/one.jpg" alt="photo1" width="145" height="100" border="0" class="image" id="photo1" title="Blah blah blah! hover title" /></a>
<a href="photos/two.jpg" rel="lytebox[set1]" title="Blah blah blah!"></a>
<a href="photos/three.jpg" rel="lytebox[set1]" title="Blah blah blah!"></a>
Also if you have two title="" it produces one for the hover title and a second for the caption.
Perhaps I should of posted this in the features. It's easy enough when hard coded. But would be very useful for the CMS. Hope that makes sense! Thanks

Yeah, you would just create a custom ImageGalleryPage and ImageGalleryItem class.
class MyImageGalleryPage extends ImageGalleryPage
protected $itemClass = "MyImageGalleryItem";
class MyImageGalleryItem extends ImageGalleryItem
static $db = array ('Set' => 'Varchar(20)');
$f = parent::getCMSFields();
Then, create a new UI plugin (which I have yet to document), but you can use the existing plugins in image_gallery/gallery_ui/ as examples.
