It also benefits from [[what_s_new_in_ce4|all that's new in the CE4 framework]]. 
 + 
 +===== Improved Standard Layout ===== 
 + 
 +The standard thumbnail grid features many responsive design enhancements,​ providing a more desktop-like experience on tablets and mobile phones. 
 + 
 +Metadata plates remain visible on portrait-orientation iPads. 
 + 
 +The number of feature icons appearing on the grid as been reducing, significantly decluttering the grid and putting greater emphasis on your images. Many icon-based features -- including permalinks, maps, social networking, etc. -- have been moved into the large image view. 
 + 
 +By popular demand, cell numbers have been implemented in a way more similar to what was in the 2014 HTML Gallery. 
 + 
 +The design interface as been streamlined overall, and should be far easier to use. 
 + 
 +---- 
 + 
 +===== Better Lightboxes ===== 
 + 
 +Photoswipe is gone. 
 + 
 +Galleries are now powered by your choice of Highslide JS, Magnific Popup or Touch'​n'​Swipe. 
 + 
 +The Highslide presentation has been completely redesigned, and it's sexy like its never been before. 
 + 
 +Magnific Popup is a little bit plain, but should retain high browser/​device compatibility now and into the future. It's great on mobile devices, and is optimized for gallery performance. 
 + 
 +Touch'​n'​Swipe incurs more overhead than Magnific Popup, but supports swipe-and-drag navigation on touch-screens,​ and pinch-to-zoom while viewing images. 
 + 
 +In all lightbox modes, you can access single-image permalink pages, or share individual images to social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ and LinkedIn, or via email. 
 + 
 +---- 
 + 
 +===== Better Social Networking ===== 
 + 
 +Share individual images to supported Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ and LinkedIn! Big, pretty previews on Facebook! Big, pretty photo cards on Twitter! Sharing images has never been so easy, and the results look better than ever. 
 + 
 +Sharing is supported from the large-image view, in both desktop and mobile browsers, without compromise! 
 + 
 +---- 
 + 
 +===== Better Publisher Features ===== 
 + 
 +We've also introduced a slew of new features when using CE4 Publisher to manage your galleries. Breadcrumbs,​ image search, and more! Check out [[What'​s New in CE4 Publisher]] for more info.
