LightGallery comes with a number of built in modules to provide thumbnails, full screen and zoom viewing, and more, with it being easy to create custom modules to add features, as well as to delete unneeded modules for faster speed.

The plugin supports touch and swipe navigation on touchscreen devices, as well as mouse drag for desktops.
