      • Include DOM gallery builder in JS file

        Please include the initPhotoSwipeFromDOM function shown in http://photoswipe.com/documentation/getting-started.html#dom-to-slide-objects in PhotoSwipe in a JS file. That would make it much easier to get started with a gallery.

        • Option for specify the order in which images are downloaded

          We have several photoswipe gallery on the page with one visible "main" image. We want to load this "main" images as fast as possible for a good user experience. But now images are loading in standart order as they are placed in the page html-code.

          It would be nice to have the opportunity to download the "main" pictures first, and then all the other pictures of photoswipers.

          Thanks.

          • Vue component

            It would be useful to release PhotoSwipe library as ready-to-use Vue.js component.

              • Option to move the controls to bottom bar?

                I use a theme with a sticky main menu that expands down. The Photoswipe controls end up under and can't be reached. An option to move the controls to the bottom bar?

                    • Clearer controls

                      1) left/right controls are rather small
                      2) left/right controls are currently invisible when touch is enabled, on new Windows touch enabled laptops, this may cause:
                      a) controls sometimes disappear when using the laptop as a normal laptop
                      b) windows does not change between tablet and desktop mode until web page is closed [amazing "design" "feature" by Microsoft but apparently true]

                      Even on a small mobile device, a visual indication that it is possible to advance or go back may be better than no indication at all.

                      This is all mitigated if the solution to show thumbnails at the bottom of…

                      • Cropped Thumbnail Bounds

                        I've seen a number of threads where people explain the issues when image thumbnails are cropped. I created a get Thumbnail Bounds function, which will simply calculate the bounds, as though the image were not cropped.

                        getThumbBoundsFn: function(index) {
                        var thumbnail = ITEMS[index].el,
                        pageYScroll = window.pageYOffset || document.documentElement.scrollTop,
                        offset = thumbnail.offset(),
                        width = thumbnail.innerWidth(),
                        height = thumbnail.innerHeight(),
                        thumbRatio = height / width,
                        origRatio = ITEMS[index].h / ITEMS[index].w,
                        cropped = thumbRatio / origRatio;
                        return {
                        x: offset.left - ( cropped > 1 ? ( width * cropped - width ) / 2 : 0 ),
                        y: offset.top - ( cropped <…

                        • Implement an existing enhancement: no image dimensions needed

                          The need to define the image dimensions is restrictive. There is a photoswipe version that removes the need to know the image dimensions:

                          https://ergec.github.io/jQuery-for-PhotoSwipe/

                          The suggestion is to add this enhancement to photoswipe.

                              • Folow mouse movement to pan image when zoomed in

                                It is somewhat cumbersome to pan images with mouse when zoomed in. Currently the only way to pan with a mouse is to click and drag. This is not very user friendly, particularly when a lot of scrolling up/down or left/right is required (such as when viewing a very wide panorama). Using the keyboard arrow buttons moves to next image. It would be nice if keyboard movement could be used to pan the image, but even better would be to pan by following mouse movements. Note how flickr has implemented this when zoomed in to a large image: https://www.flickr.com/photos/patricksloan/14587064250/

                                        Allowing multiple levels of detail on a user image would let the initial high-res image load quickly, and provide more detail for users who choose to zoom in to an item.

                                        • Circular scrolling option

                                          ie. starting again from the beginning after last image.
                                          Currently it starts at 1 again, would be great if we can disable that so that the user intuitively know they have finished the gallery.
                                          Now you have to keep an eye on the no / total indicator to know when you have finished all the pics in the gallery.
