via ExtensionManager

  1. Go to the Extension Manager and install the extension
  2. Include the static template "PhotoSwipe (photoswipe)"
  3. Configure extension if required (see section below)

via Composer

  1. install the extension via composer: composer require tei/photoswipe
  2. Include the static template "PhotoSwipe (photoswipe)"
  3. Configure extension if required (see section below)


You can overwrite all files in the Constant Editor. Besides that you will find a checkbox to enable a share-button for social media and the setting for the css-wrapper to enable photoswipe in it. Please note that the extension itself uses TS-setup 'page.99' to add its html-template at the bottom of the page. It also adds a parameter 'data-size' in TYPO3's media link in TypoScript/setup.txt

# add data-size attr to image-link
    ATagParams.dataWrap = class="{$styles.content.textmedia.linkWrap.lightboxCssClass}" rel="{$styles.content.textmedia.linkWrap.lightboxRelAttribute}" data-size="{file:current:width}x{file:current:height}"

You don't have to enable lightbox-features in TYPO3's constant editor. The extension will do this for you.

Photoswipe in your HTML:

The default setting for initializing photoswipe is by TYPO3's default css-class "ce-gallery". You can add your own classes in the constant editor. Your HTML has to look like this:

<someHtmlEl class="your-wrapper-class">
    [... code / parent nodes]
            <a href="big image" data-size="[width]X[height]">
                <img rel="potoswipe_[whatever]" [opt: title='used as caption']/>
            [opt: <figcaption>prefered as caption</figcaption>]
    [/... code / parent nodes]


Just use the regular "Enlarge on Click" checkbox in the backend. If you have more than one image, the extension will add arrows in the zoom-view.
