current version 1.2

All basic gestures are supported

  • flick to the next or previous image
  • spread to zoom in
  • drag to pan
  • pinch to zoom out or close

Spread to zoom image

PhotoSwipe is the first open-source gallery to support JavaScript-based image zooming. Even if a browser’s native zooming has been disabled, image zooming will still work.

Pinch to close gallery

The gallery’s background will gradually fade out as the user zooms out. When the gesture is complete, the gallery will close.

Vertical swipe to close gallery

Gesture is added because close button in top right corner might be hard to reach on tall mobile devices while holding in one hand.

Horizontal swipe to switch items

Images can be changed even when current slide is zoomed. Swiping is not blocked during the transition.

With the built-in MK photo resizing and caching system you can drastically reduce the loading time of your pages. Resizing images save lot of bandwidth and your site will be loaded faster. Look below, a photo.jpg image bigger than 16M has been resized as photo_l.jpg (large). Less than 100Kb !!! Cool yeah?

For more informations look also MK Dropzone plugin. MK resizing system is included into MK Photoswipe.
