ARI Fancybox
Over the years I've used lots of different gallery systems and image display options but I think Fancybox is the most elegant way of showing images that I've come across.
Very easy to install the module (remember to also install the 'anywhere' plugin too to have Fancybox operational on individual Joomla pages). I had it up and running in a few minutes and the included notes answer most questions you're likely to have.
The one problem I encountered (a conflict with my own Joomla template) was answered and solved by the support team within the hour

Without doubt, by far the best photo gallery on offer for Joomla users. Plenty of configuration options to really fine tune things. Individual galleries can be shown/hid according to user status and the user panel allows your visitors to upload, comment and rate etc. Thumbnails, regular and detailed image sizes can all be set. Upload options include multi-image, ftp and .zip batch. Quick and easy to install (note, system-legacy plugin needs to be active).
It would be nice to be able to run the detailed images as a slideshow as well as regular images (currently only previous and next buttons are available). Also the ability to add/edit image info from the front end would be helpful.
