It doesn't have all the neat effects the Nivo does, but is very flexible. On the other hand, it might be a little overkill, so in case you're after something a bit lighter, then maybe jCarouselLite might be the right solution for you http://www.gmarwaha.com/jquery/jcarousellite/.
You could look at a lightbox solution, where you have a series of thumbnails on the page that, when clicked, result in the full-size image appearing over the page. You can then click arrows to move through the other mages. My favorite is slimbox.
