  1. 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 <

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  9. 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/

  10. 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.

  11. Clean code for "MINIMAL controls" without unnecessary styles and JavaScript function

    Is someone has a clean code, only for MINIMAL controls, without unnecessary styles and JavaScript function for "Share" and etc ?
    Each kilobyte is important, especially for mobile devices.

  12. Load a larger image once the user zooms past a certain point

    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.

  14. phonegap

    Why not add this into the phonegap plugin repository, I believe this would be an invaluable plugin to be integrated into mobile apps with it's functionality.

    Unless that is, it anyway is possible?

  15. Disable URL rewriting, but keep back button functionality

    Maybe this is possible now, but is there a way we can disable URL rewriting when clicking back/forward, but keep the back button functionality on phones?

  19. Make Download image an option and allow download of high resolution images

    Not everybody is happy that you can download the images, so I think it should be possible to disable it via an option like 'imagedownloadButton: false'
    Otters like to offer the images in a higher resolution for printing, so it would be nice if you could select the folder where the images to be downloaded should be fetched, an option like 'imagedownloadFolder: highres'.

  20. Show EXIF information of the photo

    I should like that the Share / Download image menu could be extended with an item 'Show EXIF' data. Clicking that link should show a window with Exposure date, used aperture, exposing time, camera type etc.
