The only way to remove the "Image # of #" line (that I am aware of), is to hack the plugin code.
It would be possible to just comment out the lines responsible, but that seemed a little hacky.
var hideImageCount = true;
If you do not set the variable, then the "Image # of #" will display as normal.
Here's [an updated demo and here's a link to [URL="http://hibbard.eu/blog/pages/lightbox_hover_demo_2/files2.zip"]download the files](http://hibbard.eu/blog/pages/lightbox_hover_demo_2/).
Oh, and BTW, in my previous example I had
rel="lightbox[plants]" on the <a> tag.
This is what LightBox uses to group images together.
If you turn this into
rel="lightbox", then the images will all display individually without the "Image # of #" text, but you will not be able to navigate between them.
In my latest example I changed "plants" to "cats".
