I am using NextGEN Gallery as a kind of replacement for the standard Wordpress gallery function. I created a custom post type that is made to only show images like in an exhibition.

On upload I resize the images so they are all the same dimensions. When I insert the gallery into this post type via shortcode, I get a page with the tumbnails linked to the fullsize (resized) images.

What I want is that there are no thumbnails, I want to show the fullsize images directly. How do I do this?

Of course I could just change the thumbnail size so it matches the full size, but that does not sound like a good practice to me.

Also: Is it possible to only grab the first image of every gallery and display it? If so, how?

Easiest answer is to build a custom gallery template for that. –  webaware Jan 26 '13 at 10:43
