  1. Pagination or Load More option for large galleries

    An option to load an X amount of images at a time would be useful for those large galleries.

  2. Anything that might be localized (text, url's) should be taken out of the .js files

    Anything that might be localized (text, url's) should be taken out of the .js files. Not sure what is the better implementation, but may allow us to use json to "feed" the data into the appropriate classes and functions?

  5. Built in option to close modal after last slide

    Pretty sure this doesn't exist at the moment, and I think this would be a good addition.

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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 <

  18. Please would you make this package available on NuGet?

    It's great that it's available on Git, NPM and Bower but would be even more awesome if you could provide a NuGet package as well!

  20. 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/
