I have always liked the nextgen gallery plugin. But you can find others on wordpress plugins section as well

Nextgen Gallery plugin:

You can use the default Wordpress Image Gallery by choosing insert image from the page/post editor. Click to insert the cursor wherever you want the gallery and click the insert image icon in the visual editor. Now choose upload from computer and choose multiple images by clicking and holding Ctrl and clicking other images, now click OK. You will see all images upload. You can now edit the title and description, and many other image settings. Once you have adjusted the meta-data, click the insert gallery button on the bottom of the window.

If you want the images to enlarge when clicked (and stay on the same page), download the fancybox plug-in.

Ok, I installed FancyBox for WordPress, handcoded the image links on a new page called Gallery and it works!

Thanks!

Also, the Fancybox I was speaking of is linked in the post where I mentioned it. Just click the word fancybox. That one is automatic.
