Allowing downloads on mobile devices for 2018 Justified Gallery

Apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place.

I bought the 2018 Justified Gallery plugin for Lightroom in large part to allow anybody to download gallery images. It works fine with right-click on desktop computers, but I can't get it to download from three Android devices. (One can download thumbnails from the tile view on Android, but not the full-size single images.)

Given the different behaviors, I assume this is a bug rather than intentional.

Is there an easy way to fix or get around this for somebody not comfortable getting under the hood with the code?

Thanks!

It's not a bug. Downloads are not a feature built into the gallery, the browser will do as the browser does.

Re: Allowing downloads on mobile devices for 2018 Justified Gallery

That's a bit disappointing, given that a longstanding complaint with the stock Lightroom templates is that it's impossible to allow downloads from them without hacking; that's the reason I bought a third-party template, although it's my fault for not verifying the ability to download in both desktop and mobile contexts. (I did test sample galleries on a desktop environment.)

A download button or link on each large-photo presentation would be a nice option to allow in the Lightroom interface. But I understand these templates likely won't be developed (much) moving forward.

Re: Allowing downloads on mobile devices for 2018 Justified Gallery

I am planning a few updates. I have not nailed down a complete list of planned features or improvements to be added. I will think about downloads, but it's something I would need to handle carefully, which might put it out of scope. For every person that wants downloads to be easier, there's another that wants them locked out completely. Building an options suite around the feature to address both preferences makes it a very time consuming endeavor, with potentially little be to gained.
