        Fit when needed is best for small images, that shouldn’t be stretched to bigger sizes, only to smaller(to keep them visible).

        Effect on not active elements – Please use with caution! CSS transitions on filters(effects) can choke any browser. Use only on small albums(<10 images). Effects are switched off for devices with resolution lower then 1024px, as they usually don’t have enough power to animate them.
