I think it is PHP, javascript and CSS.

The CSS technique is called lightbox.

I don't know if 'think' is quite definitive for an answer.  Is there an application availble to set up a web page?

Sorry, 'I think' was a bit wishy washy. I will change that to 'It is'


And here is a link to a PHP gallery with lightbox:

It is easy to setup and a lot of these plug and play galleries only need a minimal amount of fiddling to get an out of the box lightbox gallery up and running.

That's definitely Lightbox. There is a lot of examples of it available in Internet. They are differ by layout and style.

They are fair easy to use just embed JS and css style to your html page.
Then when linking to the 'big' image just add relation tag for example rel="gb_imageset[NAME]"

An example:
<a href="big.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]" title=""><img src="small.jpg" alt="" /></a>

This page uses Lightbox for showing big images, this is a part of the code for enabling Lightbox:
<a href="images/gallery/01_Craig_Strong_dbl.jpg" class="lightbox" rel="lightbox[Lensbaby Photo Gallery]" title="© Craig Strong - DOUBLE GLASS OPTIC"><img src="images/gallery/tn_01_Craig_Strong_dbl.jpg" /></a>

But i would suggest you to use Greybox as your soultion cause it's easier for imlementation
