I tried looking at this video to figure it out – https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8hqGBMSfHtKYVZlZU1FR2dxT1E/edit?pli=1, but it stil doesn’t work.
I went to the portfolio item and under featured media in the “Apply link to image” drop down selected “open light box when clicked”. The item still goes to the in-page viewer or to it’s own page. I want all my thumbnails to immediately open a light box like the thumbnails on this page http://www.kriesi.at/themes/angular/slideshow-frontpage-example/
How do I achieve this?

You are using an old version of the theme. Please update to Angular 1.5 (you have 1.3). Just login to Themeforest using the account you purchased the theme and download, unzip twice and then using ftp update the theme. Please remember that the update will overwrite every file in the folder so if you made modification to the template files or to your custom.css file, please make sure to create a backup first.

Still waiting for a response on this. This is a feature shown in the angular demo but I can’t find anyway to achieve this functionality in the template settings. Please, can anyone help?

Like Nick said, you need to update to the latest version of Angular. It is working fine. :)

Apologies for the misunderstanding. I upgraded to the latest version after Nick suggested but was still unable to achieve the effect. In Portfolio Items under featured items, under “Apply link to the image?”, I select “Open lightbox when clicked” but it still displays the in-page slideshow with Project descriptions, which when clicked then open in the lightbox. I want to bypass the in-page slideshow all together. Am I going about it wrong?

Go to Angular > Theme Options > Portfolio > Portfolio Single Entries, select Show on single page. If you are using a Template made from the Template builder, you need edit that template then look for Portfolio element, find Portfolio Single Entries, select Show on single page again. This will disable the ajax portfolio option. The thumbnails will now open on lightbox.

Thanks so much! That did it! One problem – Where there are multiple images i’t’s only showing the first image for each entry in the lightbox window popup. Which setting do I affect so I get the multiple image click through?

I believe you just need to set each image in your slideshow to open in lightbox and then change the setting back so you have multiple images on overview pages.
Unfortunately though, if you want to open the portfolio items on the same page(ajax portfolio) you aren’t able to open the images in a lightbox without first opening the in-page portfolio item. So you would have to use the portfolio that each item opens on its own single page.
