If you have a set of related images that you would like to group, simply include a group name in the rel attribute. For example:
<a href="images/image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #1</a> <a href="images/image-2.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #2</a> <a href="images/image-3.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #3</a>
