Lightbox photos in ASP.net

First of all I am a novice on ASP.net

I have an aspx page with connection to a sql2005 server. I have tried to add a lightbox photo gallery object to the Gridview. I had help on getting it started however I seem to have lost my source on help for the moment. The page works when pulling data from the SQl dbase until I add in the lightbox feature. Here is the code in the page. I get the error on the IIS server when I try to run the page.
error CS0103: The name 'Image1' does not exist in the current context
I can't find a reference of Image1 anywhere
<asp:GridView ID="grdProjects" runat="server">
        <asp:DataList ID="grdProjects" runat="server">
          <table width="527" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
		      <td width="87" valign="bottom">&nbsp;</td><td width="262"></a>
		      <td width="168">&nbsp;</td>
		      <td width="10">&nbsp;</td>
		      <td height="28" colspan="3" align="left" valign="top"><strong class="AFSCSS"><asp:Label ID="lblProjectName" runat="server"
            text= '<%# Eval("ProjectName") %>' />&nbsp;&bull;&nbsp;
            <asp:Label ID="lblCity2" runat="server"
                    Text='<%# Eval("City") %>' />
            <asp:Label ID="lblState2" runat="server"
                    Text= '<%# Eval("ProjectState") %>' /></strong></td>

Make sure you insert Snippet 587816 this into your template.
After that add class lightbox to the link that you want to open into a lightbox window.
Also make sure to add bellow code to your page:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
      $('a.lightbox').lightBox(); // Select all links with lightbox class
This code will do all the trick -> it will add an onclick handler for the link that will open the href of the link into a lightbox window.
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.lightbox-0.4.js"></script>
