I would say the best way to have your single images appear and act the same way as the images in the galleries would be to create one-image galleries.
As for the Modulobox plugin, I would really stick with using the galleries that come with the theme (and just create one-image galleries as suggested above), because, I truly believe that the fewer plugins (and less bulk) there is — the better.
However, I assume that Modulobox should work with Narrator and Storyteller. Just disable the gallery plugins that come with these themes (‘Mauer Storyteller Gallery’ or ‘Mauer Narrator Gallery’, respectively) and fire up Modulobox.
Please mind that you will need to perform additional styling customizations to make Modulobox galleries look the same way as the Native ones (e.g. in Narrator Modulobox galleries will not be wider than the text columns as are the original galleries, etc.).

OK, thanks Paul. Food for thought. I agree with you on having less bulk. The alternate plug-in is only $20… so if it’s a nightmare to implement, it’s not an expensive one (and presumably, can always be removed and revert to the native one).
Yes, you can always try it. Just to make myself clear: both themes you mentioned are coded according to WP standards, and I’m sure the Modulobox is coded according to those standards as well. So things should work. However, you might need to tweak the looks (which would require custom coding). Cheers.
