Showcase scrolling not smooth

Explorer | Level 3

First of all, I'd like to suggest adding "Showcase" as a topic category as it's currently missing which leads me to think that this feature gets low priority (hope I'm wrong because I plan to utilize it heavily for my projects).

Now to the topic. I am concerned that showcase doesn't scroll smoothly on image-heavy sites.
This observation is based upon the creation and test of multiple showcases on desktop and mobile but in particular a showcase including 88 images some with captions and 1 video linked from YouTube. I'd like to note here that I optimized all images before adding them to showcase so to anticipate your question about file sizes: no they are not heavy multiple megabytes images (I optimized them to the reasonable point of maintaining decent quality) 

My use case right now is primarily focused on featuring selected images from my files and folders. As the folders often include a large number of files including those in a raw format my strategy for consistent file and project management is to create a showcase for my major folders with travels and other projects. You could argue that I don't need to load them on showcase but create a separate folder to store the selected items but I've done that in the past and it was not practical for me for at least 2 reasons: 1) it would consume more of my dropbox space to keep duplicated files 2) managing duplicated files could become a mess if you plan to do any edits as I do so having one central location for the file is key.

Hey @KatarzynaOs, welcome to the Community & thanks for sharing your thoughts as you’ve been posting us; I’ve made sure to note down your observations in my report to our Community managers!
 
Even so, it would be worth noting that Showcases usually fall under the Sharing category, so the best board would be Files & Folders at the moment. 
 
Because I’d need to replicate & check back how the Showcases play on my end ( just so as to determine whether there’s room for improvement), I’ve now sent you a brief message through our Official Support channel. Once you reply back to me, we can discuss it in more detail based on the info I have on file on my tools. Please have a look at your inbox whenever you have a bit of spare time & I’ll check back with you asap. Thanks!
