    • 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'.

        • Disable URL rewriting, but keep back button functionality

          Maybe this is possible now, but is there a way we can disable URL rewriting when clicking back/forward, but keep the back button functionality on phones?

          • 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.

            • Add Multiple Galleries

              Allow the ability to create multiple galleries with their own set of photos in each.

              Gallery B --> 14 Photos
              Gallery C --> 3 Photos

              • Show GPS location

                I made a jAlbum skin PhotoSwipe (see http://jalbum.net/en/skins/skin/PhotoSwipe) and I like to give this skin the same fuctionallity as my Slide Show 4 skin.
                So I like to add to the Share / Download image menu a new entry 'Show GPS location' which shows the GPS location in Google Maps with a function like this:
                function OpenGoogleMaps() {
                if (typeof(gMap) != "undefined") {
                if (gMap[slide_index].length > 0) {
                window.open("http://maps.google.com/maps?q=" + gMap[slide_index] + "");
                }
                }
                };
                In this case I have the GPS coordinates in an array gMap, but I could save the location also in the…

                  • Double click on zoomable images to close gallery

                    I think this could be a useful desktop feature.

                    • image padding on mobile

                      I think it would be great to have the option to add a padding around images in the mobile view. Some people prefer when images have some framing around them.

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

                        • Add a button below the thumbnails (for the administration of photo information for example)

                          I load my images with URLs stored in database.
                          I build the tags contained in the rows retrieved according to my table like this :

                          $pathPetite = $path.'/'.$photo['petite'];
                          $pathGrande = $path.'/'.$photo['grande'];
                          $pathOriginale = $path.'/'.$photo['originale'];

                          $miniaturePath = $pathPetite;
                          $galeriePath = $pathGrande;

                          list($width, $height) = getimagesize($galeriePath);

                          echo '<figure itemprop="associatedMedia" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/ImageObject">';

                          echo ' <center><img src="./'.$miniaturePath.'" itemprop="thumbnail" alt="'.$photo['description'].'" title="'.$photo['id'].'-'.$photo['originale'].'" /></center>';
                          echo ' </a>';
                          echo ' <figcaption itemprop_titre="'.$photo['titre'].'" itemprop_desc="'.$photo['description'].'" itemprop_originaleurl="'.$pathOriginale.'"></figcaption>';

                            • Add loading class name to images that are loading.

                              I had this problem that I wanted to add a white background to loaded images. But this is impossible without manipulating the .js till great extend. Would be nice to have native support.

                              This is useful because some images have transparent background.

                              • Add attribute with item index to images.

                                The listener functions often return an index. But what if we dynamically want to find this image in the DOM based on that index? Would be very handy.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Wordpress Page Integration

                                        Hello Dmitry,

                                        I have all references being accessed externally on Codepen (http://codepen.io/forrestwhitmore/pen/LVvvZv) and it works there. However, when the same HTML code is applied within a Wordpress page, nothing occurs.

                                        All references are within the Wordpress header.php for testing purposes. Any ideas why this would not work?

                                        Thank you

                                        • 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!
