  3. 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'.

  4. 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.

  8. Add support for pinch-out zoom gesture to open gallery

    Some users automatically attempt to use the pinch-out zoom gesture on images to start zooming in. It would be nice to have the gallery open with this gesture along with the tap that is already supported.

    This is a great plugin!

  11. 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.

    I think this could be a useful desktop feature.

  13. 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...

  15. Magento Extension

    Make a drop in magento extension with open source code for easy customization. I'll happily give a $100 donation towards the development and I'm sure you can easily find another 9+ to pitch in.

  16. 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.

  20. Allow closing of mobile gallery when clicking outside of image

    I've had people complain that on mobile devices they have to click the small "x" button to close the gallery. I personally don't care and I can see why it was developed the way it was (for sloppy fingers) — but is there, or can there be a configurable initialization option for allowing the gallery to be closed clicking outside the image and not directly on the X button?

    It works like this out of the box on desktop browsers and not mobile.
