Share your ideas on how PhotoSwipe can be improved. To report bugs please use GitHub. If you have questions regarding implementation use StackOverflow.

  1. Add an easy option for default scaling of images displayed

    Previous versions of PhotoSwipe had an imageScaleMethod option that would allow you to stretch or shrink image display size to the display area. At the moment you can do a hacky imitation of this by applying a zoom to the current item on beforeChange. But zooming deactivates the swipe on non-touch devices. It would be handy if we could specify how images should fit in the display area.

  3. Customize Selectors

    Please customize selectos so that the script does not look for the 'closest' Figure element, but a custom class name, as the thumbnails of a group could be in different divs (ie a layout grid) and Figure tags could be not near each other. Also a custom selector for click actions not necessarely A href tag..

  4. 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.

  5. 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!!!

  15. Zoom Events

    In the previous version (3.0.4) existed zoom events (onZoomPanRotateShow and onZoomPanRotateHide).
    It would be possible to recover those events in this new version?
    Thanks.

  16. Galley inline option within page content

    Would be great if there was the ability to have the photoswipe inline within page content. Then on clicking an icon the gallery opens up to it's current default interaction

  18. 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.
