  1. 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.

  2. 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:

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

    Thanks!
