Thanks very much for your advice guys.
Think I will try the lightbox, had used earlier versions but scriptaculous.js and prototype.js seemed to conflict with many other java scripts so I stopped using it. I see the author has now used jquery.
I will have to test it though if you feel there is a hover feature, cannot remember that on earlier versions, you definatley had to click to open and click to close.
Is the Google one purely for touch screens or will it work on normal browsers as well does anybody know.
The hover is only used for the rel="lightbox[groupname]" feature that creates Lightbox galleries with next/previous buttons that appear on hover of the image in the Lightbox. These are css based hovers though so might work adequately on touch devices (like the original code in this thread perhaps, appearing but not disappearing, which would be OK, since they should then disappear when clicked). If not, editing the lightbox.css file can make them always visible. They activate on click.
