"Thickbox supports the usual stuff, such as displaying a single photo or an album of photos. In the case of an album, it doesn't ship with transitions between photos nor does it provide a slideshow mode. Therefore, you need to code the transition that you want to use. Is this a feature? I think so! This is an epitome of "less is more". Since Thickbox isn't tied to any one transition, it allows me to use any and as many transitions as I like.

I don't think the use of modal boxes in a web application needs any justification. Click here for an example of modal box."
