  1. Clearer controls

    1) left/right controls are rather small
    2) left/right controls are currently invisible when touch is enabled, on new Windows touch enabled laptops, this may cause:
    a) controls sometimes disappear when using the laptop as a normal laptop
    b) windows does not change between tablet and desktop mode until web page is closed [amazing "design" "feature" by Microsoft but apparently true]

    Even on a small mobile device, a visual indication that it is possible to advance or go back may be better than no indication at all.

    This is all mitigated if the solution to show thumbnails at the bottom of…

  2. 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.

  3. Cropped Thumbnail Bounds

    I've seen a number of threads where people explain the issues when image thumbnails are cropped. I created a get Thumbnail Bounds function, which will simply calculate the bounds, as though the image were not cropped.

            getThumbBoundsFn: function(index) {
                var thumbnail = ITEMS[index].el,
                    pageYScroll = window.pageYOffset || document.documentElement.scrollTop,
                    offset = thumbnail.offset(),
                    width = thumbnail.innerWidth(),
                    height = thumbnail.innerHeight(),
                    thumbRatio = height / width,
                    origRatio = ITEMS[index].h / ITEMS[index].w,
                    cropped = thumbRatio / origRatio;
                return {
                    x: offset.left - ( cropped > 1 ? ( width * cropped - width ) / 2 : 0 ),
                    y: offset.top - ( cropped <

  4. Please would you make this package available on NuGet?

    It's great that it's available on Git, NPM and Bower but would be even more awesome if you could provide a NuGet package as well!

  6. 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/

  8. 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.

  9. Clean code for "MINIMAL controls" without unnecessary styles and JavaScript function

    Is someone has a clean code, only for MINIMAL controls, without unnecessary styles and JavaScript function for "Share" and etc ?
    Each kilobyte is important, especially for mobile devices.

  12. 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?

  15. 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?

  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.

  17. 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[slideindex].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…

  20. 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.
