light box don't work with wlw 2011

Additional Details
hi! i just recently started to use wlw 2011, and i love it. the problem is that whenever I use a picture in my post, when I go on my blog and click the image, it will open in picassa and not in light box. I use blogger as a blogging platform.

I updated the theme, but no result. the light box script is there, because it works when i publish from blogger.

here's a link to my blog, http://www.mihneachirila.net/2012/02/am-trecut-pe-windows-live-writer.html
just click the image and see for yourself. 
is there any way  to get the pictures open in light box? please help!

thanks in advance guys. cheers.

Hi mick robsons,

To address your concern, please verify if Lightbox is installed to your computer. If yes, Lightbox should automatically be detected by Windows Live Writer.

To see the photos in Lightbox when clicked in a blog, please do the following steps:

1. After inserting the photo, click Properties (make sure the photo is selected).
2. Click Link option.
3. Put a check in the box beside Lightbox.

Note: this will work if Lightbox is properly installed.

Please verify if this resolve your issue.
