Situation: You're on a web page with a small image displayed, and when you click on the image, the current browser window contents are "grayed out", and a window animates itself onto the screen to show the image in its actual size. The window has a Close button on it.
 
I assume it's done in javascript, and that it's a child window of some sort, but I don't know how to search for it in google because I'm not sure what the technique is called.

Additional to my answer for your query "child window of some sort"...It is not a child window but a DIV element with absolute positioned. The javascript is behind to show, hide or load the bigger image using ajax.

Hi John,
 
My designer call it as lightbox. You can use search keyword "javascript lightbox" or "JQuery Lightbox". I assume you are looking for something like this http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/[^]
