  1. Allow closing of mobile gallery when clicking outside of image

    I've had people complain that on mobile devices they have to click the small "x" button to close the gallery. I personally don't care and I can see why it was developed the way it was (for sloppy fingers) — but is there, or can there be a configurable initialization option for allowing the gallery to be closed clicking outside the image and not directly on the X button?

    It works like this out of the box on desktop browsers and not mobile.

  4. Watermark

    Hi wonder if you could add a transparent watermark incorporated on to the images via an .png file

    If this could be done at a high z level to stop the unwise from stealing the images by simply right clicking ( i know this wouldn't stop the pro's and cache hunters)

    i produced this css code which worked on the main gallery image, but cant get it on image preview /

    img.pwsp___img {
    content: '' !important;
    position: absolute !important;
    left: 0 !important;
    top: 0 !important;
    right: 0 !important;
    bottom: 0 !important;
    background: url(https://irp-cdn.multiscreensite.com/c985c62c/dms3rep/multi/kisspng-nfl-draft-watermark-clip-art-stamp-5ac82f995269b7.4579887015230688253376-37705a56.png) !important;
    background-size: cover !important;
    }

  6. Fix the IOS and certain windows browser "save image as..." capability.

    I found users having various bugs related to saving images in the gallery when trying to right-click or hold-tap on an image in an open gallery.

    Seems like windows 10 browsers — right clicking causes the gallery to close instead of giving the user the option to save the image.

    On IOS Safari — the user can hold-tap on the image and never get an option to save the image.

    On Android Chrome and all the MacOS browsers I've tested it with, I am still able to save the image on a right-click or hold-tap.

  7. The amount of time I spent initializing a gallery... Was absolutely ridiculous.

    Don't make us do half the work. My initialization is 5 functions and a couple hundred lines of code. It is ridiculous. Thanks for the work and it is an excellent plugin for the end user, but I spent a day today initializing *a lightbox*. The only word I have for this, is ridiculous.

    A constructor should construct. hence the name.

    On Every Resize instead of blank space on the sides , the photos must be justify to the center.

  14. Click to advance to next image

    Presently, clicking an image (optionally) will zoom, if the image is not at 100% scale, or close the slideshow.

    I'd like an option to instead have the mouse click advance to the next image in the slideshow. This would set the aforementioned behavior false, of course. Zooming would then be accessible only using the toolbar icon, and perhaps via double-click.
