                  • More than two image sizes (aka srcset)

                    I want to define slides with all available image files:
                    {
                    thumbnailImage: {
                    src: 'path/to/thumbnail-image-1.jpg',
                    w: 80,
                    h: 60
                    }
                    mediumImage: {
                    src: 'path/to/medium-image-1.jpg',
                    w:800,
                    h:600
                    },
                    bigImage: {
                    src: 'path/to/big-image-1.jpg',
                    w: 1400,
                    h: 1050
                    }
                    originalImage: {
                    src: 'path/to/original-image-1.jpg',
                    w: 1900,
                    h: 1350
                    }
                    },

                    and Photoswipe should decide what to use in popup (and update it if window is resized, went to fullscreen etc.)

                      • Galley inline option within page content

                        Would be great if there was the ability to have the photoswipe inline within page content. Then on clicking an icon the gallery opens up to it's current default interaction

                          Would like the option to automatically display each image after a specified pause duration.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • Option to Show Images Fully Zoomed

                                It would be ideal for products to show images fully zoomed to save the user the step of zooming in. Similar to the mobile site allsaints.com which is quite popular.

                                      I tried to change the layout, But I failed. It would be nicer if you'll allow html content with images.
