Javascript image popup scripts (lightbox + thickbox)

I have found two javascript scripts for image gallerys and pop ups

Lightbox -
Thickbox -

I really like features of both and was hoping someone might be able to help modify the scripts.

Lightbox - this script gives a really well styled popup and i love the transitions and the simplicity, its, ideal for galleries, the one thing that it needs is to react to the browser better, (stay centered on the screen even when the screen is scrolled. currenly it opens and stays where it is) This is implemented really well on the thickbox script.

Thickbox - this script seems a lot more versatile and seems to offer a lot more fuctionality but i dont think it is styled as well as the lightbox one, if someone could help implement the transitions and similar stylling to the lightbox one it would be amazing.

Any help would be much appriciated

Many Thanks

    That would be like rewriting it.
    How about suggesting it to the author?
