Slightbox plugin is a combination of Slimbox and Lightbox. It is based on Mootools 1.0 with a darker more SmoothGallery kind of look. Infact, all of the images were made by the creator of SmoothGallery. Slimbox was created by Christophe Beyls as a easy, lightweight replacement to Lightbox. Slightbox should be able to do everything that Slimbox and Lightbox do, so you should be able to just replace your lightbox or Slimbox with Slightbox.
