NextGEN Gallery
Image quality question (8 posts)

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


    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:

    2) Thumbnails inside each gallery are good.

    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:

    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!
