Photoswipe for NextGEN Gallery

NextGEN Gallery navigations adapted for iPhone, Android and Blackberry: pinch to zoom, swipe to navigate, auto-rotate.

The default NextGEN gallery navigations (Shutter, Thickbox, etc...) fall short when using a mobile browser? Now you can use Photoswipe, the best mobile image browser, just installing this plugin. The default gallery effect and configuration is kept when accessing from a desktop browser.

After activation you'll find a new Photoswipe submenu in the NextGEN Gallery menu, allowing you to configure how the plugin works.

Please note, I am not the developer, or related in any way with of the authors of Photoswipe or NextGEN Gallery. This plugin is only intended to make Photoswipe integration with NextGEN Gallery dead simple.

If you find this plugin helpful, consider donating, at least ten cents.


The plugin is ready to be used with zero configuration, but to make testing easier, there are 3 configuration options:

  • Replace viewer with Photoswipe only on mobile browsers: This is the default behavior, and will replace the NextGEN Gallery Effect with Photoswipe only when a mobile browser is detected.

  • Always replace viewer with Photoswipe: Useful for testing.

  • Never replace the viewer: Disables the plugin. Much like deactivating the plugin.

  • Disable additional viewers: In this section you can disable other supported image viewers, other than the NextGEN Gallery default ones. Currently only Fancybox.
