CSS Question

Configure PhotoSwipe to Not Use Entire Window?

I'm currently trying to build a mobile image gallery using PhotoSwipe.
I've been able to get it working but there's one small problem. When I
click on a photo thumbnail, the actual photo always takes up the entire
viewport. This is OK when you're viewing the gallery on a mobile device.
But if your viewport is a computer screen and the image isn't a
high-res one, the photo can be very blurry. I'd rather limit the photo
to a width of maybe 300 to 400 pixels when viewed on a computer. Is there
a way to do this in PhotoSwipe? I read the documentation but couldn't
quite figure it out. I've enclosed my code below.

Thanks.

Answer

You can put Photoswipe markup (root element with class pswp) to any container with position: relative and edit photoswipe.css or add to your stylesheet something like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <title>Photoswipe in container</title>
    <style>
        #myContainer {
            position: relative;

            /* other container styles */
        }

        .pswp {
            position: absolute!important;
        }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
    <div id="myContainer">
        <!-- Root element of PhotoSwipe. Must have class pswp. -->
        <div class="pswp" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-hidden="true">
            <!-- standard markup omitted -->
        </div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>
