How to write a proper ELSE statement

Hi all. I have currently am using this javascript:

<script language="javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
                  $("a[rel^='prettyPhoto']").prettyPhoto({
                  theme:'pp_default',
                  showTitle: true
                  });

            });
</script>

What I want to add is that IF rel=prettyPhoto2 THEN theme:'new_theme'

Not sure how to properly do this.

Since you're using jQuery, you could accomplish this like:
$(document).ready(function(){
              $("a[rel=prettyPhoto2]").prettyPhoto({           // this will only match prettyPhoto2
                  theme:'new_theme',
                  showTitle: true
                  });

              $("a[rel^='prettyPhoto']").not("a[rel=prettyPhoto2]").prettyPhoto({    // this will match all others
                  theme:'pp_default',
                  showTitle: true
                  });

            });

Assuming you use jQuery here, the best to achieve your goal would be iterating an array with each(), like this:
$.each($("a[rel^=prettyPhoto]"), 
  function(itemIndex, item) {
   item.prettyPhoto({
     theme: (item.attr("rel")=='prettyPhoto2')? 'new_theme' : 'pp_default',
     showTitle: true
   });
  }
);

Oops, sorry, small glitch. Use this instead:
$.each($("a[rel^=prettyPhoto]"), 
  function(itemIndex, item) {
   item.prettyPhoto({
     theme: (item.rel=='prettyPhoto2')? 'new_theme' : 'pp_default',
     showTitle: true
   });
  }
);
