You can find few fullscreen templates, but if you’re a photographer, you know how important is composition. Fullscreen photos are always cutted or stretched, so they don’t look as you wanted.
BIG Gallery allows you to choose from 4 ways of fullscreen slideshow. You can fill all screen with the image, fill full width or height. You can also automaticly adjust images to prevent them from being cut. You can change slideshow type separately for every page.
Take a look at the example:
Filled image (cutted on the top and bottom)
Uncut image (all visible)
You can also create classic filterable gallery with thumbnails.
There is also a slideshow gallery:
Check it yourself (you can play with the browser size – slideshows are fully responsive):
- Filled – all screen is filled with image
- Uncut – all image is visible
- Full width – all images are resized to have browser width
- Full height – all images are resized to have browser height
- Classic gallery
- Slideshow gallery
BIG Gallery has another unique feature. Logo, menu and other elements are autohiding after few seconds if you don’t move the mouse (this can be set with config file). So now you can see only photos! If you move the mouse, navigation will show up. Open live preview and wait for 2 seconds (do not move the mouse).

And some more testimorials:
To any one considering purchasing this item let me make two invaluable points:
1. The template is not only reliable and well designed, it comes with complete documentation and extensive CSS notes. Its very intuitive and contains no anomalies. It does exactly what the author says it will do.
2. This author is highly responsive to your questions. Out of courtesy you should check the documentation for answers to your questions first, but that being said, he is by far the very best author on Theme Forest when it comes to timely and reliable communication.
Therefore I give him my highest and most enthusiastic recommendation. I really hope he continues with TF and offers more and more products. He deserves our support!
Just want to give a huge Thank You to Johnny for his great work and even better Customer Service. Excellent job Johnny!
