NextGEN Gallery
Image quality question (8 posts)

    I'm using NextGen in conjunction with Photoswipe as gallery management for an architecture firm:

    http://semelsnow.com/wp/portfolio

    The client is complaining that the images aren't crisp enough for them. The problem has two parts.

    1) Static thumbnails seen on the gallery listings page are not crisp:
    http://semelsnow.com/wp/portfolio

    2) Thumbnails inside each gallery are good.
    http://semelsnow.com/wp/portfolio?album=1&gallery=8

    3) When clicking on each pic Photoswipe scales the picture to fit the window.

    So my question has two parts as well.

    1) My image settings are at 100%. Is there anything I can do to make the images better quality?
    2) Can NextGen provide two sizes of images? One for mobile use and another for desktop use?

    Here's a screenshot of the server settings pod:

    In NextGen -->Options-->Thumbnails

    Set Maximum Width & height both to 270px.

    Hope this can help.

    May I ask how can use NextGen in conjunction with Photoswipe as gallery management?

    Hey guys...

    Sorry about the delay. I rarely use WordPress so forgive me if I don't know what's normal and what's not.

    I installed the files as normal then I edited them heavily.

    This page:
    http://semelsnow.com/portfolio?album=1&gallery=1

    contains this line of code:
    [album id=1 template=compact]

    Each gallery page contains this line of code:
    [nggallery id=5]

    and also has a custom slug.

    It's been almost a year since I originally built that site so I don't recall quite how I set it up. Here's a ZIP of the wp-content directory from that site.

    Good luck!

    I had a hard time trying to use Photoswipe with NextGEN Gallery, so after I found a solution I made a plugin to do such thing without editing the files.

    It replaces the default viewer with Photoswipe when using a mobile browser. It's really simple to use.

    Give it a try!
