A short while ago I ported the contributed module Photoswipe to Backdrop from its Drupal 7 version. This module uses an open source jQuery library by Dmitri Semenov to implement a gallery of images which can be swiped one by one, either to the left or to the right. With a touchscreen device this is a normal swiping action; without a touchscreen small right and left arrows can be used.
Photoswipe Drupal Image
It is now the practice in Backdrop to include libraries within the module that uses them, rather than use the separate Libraries module, and I have just completed a new release of Photoswipe (v2.1.0) that does this.
I'm using drupal7 Photoswipe module which uses Photoswipe jQuery plugin to build a view and display a gallery of photos. Currently Photoswipe allows only to display image title as image caption. Also to display other text fields from the same content node, I add content text fields to the view and change their display to add a CSS class (.phototext).
Below is a demonstration - just click on one of the thumbnails to see it in action.
The images show Bluetit parents leaving their nesting box as they fly to and fro feeding their young.

PhotoSwipe 4.0+ is developed by Dmitry Semenov. But initially script was created in 2011 by Code Computerlove, a digital agency in Manchester, they passed on development in March 2014. You can view source and documentation of old PhotoSwipe (<4.0) in history of this repo.
