What is the best FREE/inexpensive AJAX Photo Album tool to integerate into my ASP.NET 3.5 VB  WEB application?

I have multiple clients and  I am doing research about the best tool/ code to use for integrating into my ASP.NET 3.5 application. Does anyone know of the best tool? I can create my own service or handler, but I really want to be able to roll over or click the thumbnail to change the photo and then click on the photo to show its detail. For example, my current client is an antique shop that wants to be able to view thumbnails by Period or Category, and then mouse over them to replace the main photo on the same page...then when you click on the photo, I want to be able to show all of the attributes for the current piece. (probably a separate page)

I will be using whatever you reccommend in multiple please help...also any other advice about making a site look ajax enabled to look kind of like flash/silverlight would be great.
Please help...I have been researching and there are so many options, however, I need to streamline this process so I don't take a million years to find the best tool.

    Maybe, Lightbox JS?
    There are some tools built upon LightBox:
    Note: I heard a lot about LightBox, but I haven't had a chance to try it in my apps yet.
