if ((arr['behavior'] == 'hover') || (arr['behavior'] == 'lightbox')) {


~\CMSModules\Content\Controls\Dialogs\Properties\HTMLMediaProperties.ascx:

                <div style="padding-left: 27px; padding-top: 5px;">

                    }

                    {
                        radImageLightbox.Checked = true;
                    }

                    // Process behavior

                if (obj.img_behavior == "hover") {

to:

                if ((obj.img_behavior == "hover") || (obj.img_behavior == "lightbox")) {


2) Replace ~\CMSInlineControls\ImageControl.ascx.cs file with this one (please rename file to 'ImageControl.ascx.cs' after downloading it).

3) Download original lightbox gallery files and follow procedure described at http://www.lokeshdhakar.com/projects/lightbox2/#how
You can register the required JavaScripts, e.g. using the General -> Java script web part and CSS file e.g. using General -> HeadHTML web part

4) Add image(s) into editable region using 'Insert/Edit image or media' button from toolbar and choose lightbox behavior in 'Behavior' tab after selecting the image from media library.
