One of my sites is dealing with products review.
We invested a lot of effort and $$$ in quality pictures.

So, we have the main article, the gallery page and a lot of individual picture pages.

The problem is that there are a lot of pages, with thin content and not a very good browsing experience (we know that).

We tested a lightbox implementation, and from my point a view is the best implementation for browsing pictures + a great SEO practice (links to the big pictures from the main article).

There are 2 problems:
- Adsense does not run inside lightbox code, the only way is to use an iframe and it seems to be against Google TOS.
- I've lost 50% of my pageviews and 50% of my revenue.

On the other side, Panda is crunching my site each week and I'm running low on thin pages.

So the main question is: there any option to use lightbox with adsense OR any other implementation that can help me monetize my gallery pages?
