  8. 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.

  12. 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.)

  13. 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

  16. 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.

  17. Add comment and like section

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

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
