Install by adding it to your buildout:



eggs =

and then running bin/buildout


Please make sure that you have reasonable image sizes set in your portal. Something as follow should be good.

large 1400:1400 preview 600:600 mini 400:400 thumb 200:200

The large size is used for the zoom and mini for the preview grid view. Changing the other too just make sense if you change something.

After you have the correct sizes, you can just change the view on every Folder or Collection in Plone to “Photo gallery”.


  • make flexbin-row-height and flexbin-space configureable
