Reviews

Simple, clair, efficace et avec zoom!

Lightbox très épurée gérant les écrans tactiles et le zoom dans les grandes images.
Intégration très réussie de Photoswipe dans le plugin par le développeur ! Avec un bon support, qui a permis de corriger quelques bugs dans le css avec certains thèmes WordPress!

Really liking this!

Finally a photoswipe plugin for WordPress. Thanks! It’s working really well for me so far, with no problems.

I have one enhancement request: I’ll post on the support forum.

Thanks again for a really nice (and long-needed) plugin.
