  1. Image rotate

    How about the possibility to rotate an image?
    Would be nice in case the uploader forgot that ;)

  3. Horizontal slide animation

    Sliding image in and out orizontally when clicking the navigation arrows (left right).It will give a more smoothing experience, as when you drag horizontally.

    Transition between items is removed on purpose. Reasons:

    On slow machines transitions will not look smooth, especially if large images are used.

    As progressive loading of images is enabled, it causes Paint each time some part loads. If animation will start before some image is fully loaded, there will be lags. Again, especially if images are big (1200px+)

    Transition (especially “move”) distracts from the content. Most native image viewers don’t use any transition. As well as web photo-giants, like 500px, Flickr or Imgur.

    In summary, there are no plans to add “move” transition between slides. “fade” – maybe, but currently there are more important features in todo list.

  5. Support tiles for deep zoom, high resolution images

    The zoom feature is great, but what if you supported tiled images? Check out this museum's site to see it in action:

    https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/en

    They're using Leaflet, but there's also OpenLayers.

    Thanks!

  8. Trap tab controls in photo lightbox

    Trap the tabing inside the photo lightbox, so that keyboard users cannot tab out of the modal and get lost.

  10. Flickr integration

    It would be great it we could just enter a username or album id and it creates a gallery automatically.

  11. Minimal version for mobile devices only

    It could be nice to have a minimal edition for mobile devices only; that is, without all features and icons needed for desktop browsers...
