Comment (by kevinwhoffman):

 A mosaic gallery implies at least two columns of images, in which case we
 would be cutting down the max-width of an image by 50% or more. This would
 make many screenshots useless until expanded in a lightbox. While a
 lightbox can be useful for further investigation, it shouldn't be a
 starting point out of necessity.

 With the vertically stacked format in the existing repo, I rarely have to
 click an image to glean the info I need from it. However in a multi-column
 gallery, you are basically requiring an extra click to make any use of it.
 While I'm not a fan of the slider, at least it allows the images to
 display at max-width.

 Remember we're dealing with screenshots of detailed UIs, not photographs.
 What works with one does not necessarily translate to the other.
