  • Brian,

    I guess this is out side the scope of ACF. However, one strategy (that might work) could be:

    1. Hide your images with css:
    #gallery-1 { display:none;}

    2. Create a button “Photos”

    3. Add a jQuery click event listener to the button that performs/fakes a “Click” on the first image – to start the Simple Lightbox:

    jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    	// cache variables -Id #btn-photos is generic - chang with your own actual ID or Class
    	var btnPhotos = $("#btn-photos"),
    		galleryItems = $("#gallery-1").find(".gallery-item a");
    	$("#btn-photos").click(function(event) {
    		// something like this MIGHT work..

    Might be better ways, but this is first that came to mind.
