Idea for a different slider for the slideshow format
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

I wish I could have more control over the slideshow format.
Currently, it only displays one big image, has arrows that suggest to move back and forward, and has a toggle to show all the other thumbnails at once.
I feel that sliders like this one could be more effective at hinting that there's more to browse; also, I wish the slideshow featured maybe 3 smaller images rather than a big one, and then had the "cut" ones at the edges to suggest there's more to see.

I agree that we need a different interface option for galleries where there are dozens of images in the slideshow.

(Tangentially: We had discussed this in a meeting, and I mentioned that I thought I had filed a task for an option to show the thumbnails by default. I did! I'd forgotten to search "resolved" tasks previously >.< See T202660: Create a <gallery mode=slideshow> option that shows thumbnail strip by default -- TLDR: We can use <gallery mode="slideshow" showthumbnails> to force the thumbnail section to be expanded-by-default.)
