  1. Click to advance to next image

    Presently, clicking an image (optionally) will zoom, if the image is not at 100% scale, or close the slideshow.

    I'd like an option to instead have the mouse click advance to the next image in the slideshow. This would set the aforementioned behavior false, of course. Zooming would then be accessible only using the toolbar icon, and perhaps via double-click.

  2. Discourage save file as

    For instance, placing a div over the image, or capture the right click over an image and replacing the context menu with an alert message.

  3. Load images dynamically from a folder

    Have a thumbnail that on click will load images in a folder.
    Example: Click thumbnail for gallery 1, load all images pointing to gallery1 folder.

  6. Do not destoy it after close

    For example, I have the only one gallery on my page. I don't want to create new gallery object every time.

    var g = new PhotoSwipe( ... )
    g.init()

    so when i want to open it after close i should create new PhotoSwipe object; But i want something like g.open() instead

    Thank!

  7. Ability to customize display of Social Share Buttons (not just an arrow)

    To increase engagement (shares), it would be much more beneficial to have an option to display social media icons at first glance without needing to click on the "Share arrow" first. More steps = less engagement. Also, the share arrow can be easily overlooked where as social media icons are obvious and encourages clicking. Thanks!!!

  9. Image rotate

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

  10. 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/

  16. Option to turn off secondary zoom

    Unless I am missing something, there does not appear to be an option to control whether or not the secondary zoom (ie the zoom in that occurs when user clicks an image that can be larger than the initial zoomed-in size). I have used the getDoubleTapZoom() option to set the maximum zoom to item.initialZoomLevel, but this doesn't prevent the cursor changing to a magnifier when it's over the image. I simply want the image to always close when it's clicked, unless a left/right arrow is clicked of course.

    For the time being I've changed ui.onGlobalTap() to call close() regardless of…

  17. Flickr integration

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

  18. 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?

  19. Add an RTL option

    It would be great to create a Right to left option to show it in inverse way, as the counter fits and the the goTo function getting fits to it.
