lightbox project, can I make next buttons

On the lightbox project. would I be able to create "next" and "previous" buttons" so that I can go on to the next photo in the ul, but make sure that it stays in the lightbox mode?

You certainly could add buttons like that if you want.

You might have the buttons be part of the overlay, along with the image and caption. Then have the click handlers for those buttons just replace the image and caption without dismissing the overlay itself.

Steven Parker Would I have to do something different to this, if I wanted to be able to implement swipe gestures for mobile?

There's currently no "swipe" event in JavaScript, but there are a number of libraries available for detecting them, including jQuery.
