Should I use Magnific Popup or Photoswipe lightbox option?

In version 2.12 we have introduced a new lightbox/modal/popup type - Photoswipe .

This new lightbox type is ideal for the images albums for mobile devices. Choose it if your album is made of images and you want to give nice control over the gallery for tablets, phones etc.

To enable the Photoswipe lightbox option go to the Album settings -> open Basic album options tab -> navigate to  Image on-click behavior and change it to " Open image in lightbox" -> then choose " Photoswipe " in Lightbox type option  and click Save .


See what Photoswipe has to offer for mobile devices:


The Magnific Popup lightbox type should be selected when you have images and videos in your Album as Photoswipe lightbox type does not support videos.
