Andre - so much is possible with jAlbum, as David proves with his code snipped again.

Instead of "I need - you have to do it" it would be much nicer to ask "I want - I tried - I can't figure out - please help".

You are a skin developer - YOU need to: Try, search, copy code snippets, and yes: Often you need to ask for help. And help is there. Not always ready for copy/paste, and sometimes it needs time. But in the end - hey: It is about YOUR needs and YOUR skin ...

The title is fine. It's the rest of your posts that are full of demands, accusations that David is wasting his time on other things (in other words, things that you don't care about), and so on.

I did not say that David is wasting his time, that are your words!
I just did give my opinion, is that not allowed?

It is a pity that David does not react himself and concentrates development on items which most people do not use instead of paying attention to requirements for mobile devices which most people use these days.

Your opinion is always the same. A typical AndreWolff post:

1. I need X for my skin.
2. This is obviously the perfect way to do things, so every other skin should do exactly the same thing.
3. Therefore, X should be a jAlbum core function.

The problem is with step 2. When others respond that they don't think that X is the way to do things, or that they don't think there's any need for it, you get stubborn. Instead of just implementing it in your own skin, you keep insisting that David should take care of this for you.

It's grown very, very tiresome.

André, I hope you take the critique in this thread in a constructive way. I agree with what they're saying.

You wanted a one liner function to generate extra slides. I showed you a code snippet that you easily can turn into such a function (add two lines of code). The AlbumImage API requires a few more lines of code, but is a better fit for a API as it allows for more flexibility and performance: If you for instance wish to produce one more size, you can just have the AlbumImage make one more scaling of an already scaled image. If you wish to apply filters (the standard ones or additional ones), the API allows for it, etc. It's still to be considered a high level API.

Of course it is allowed but so are the opinions of others.
It just appears to most of us that you feel your opinion is the only one that matters.

Interesting. Did you find a way that the device choices which pictures it should download?
Yes, see http://photoswipe.com/documentation/responsive-images.html

I tested this in this example: http://andrewolff.jalbum.net/Reestdal_PSB/, but the effect is minimal, so I will not implement this feature in the PhotoSwipe skin.

Edited by: jGromit on 29-Jun-2020 08:03 to fix non-working link. Nope, still non-working. Album doesn't exist.

So can we now agree that there's no need for jAlbum to provide images in multiple resolutions? Make up your mind.
