Margie Smeer Senior editor

The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 11.5
jAlbum lets you display your photos in the form of galleries which are both easy-to-browse and stylish-looking. It also lets you upload the created photo albums to your websites or to jalbum.
net with ease. Since it can create complete webpages, it can even be used to build professional-looking web photo sites that feature “about” and “contact” pages, shopping carts, social integration and map support.

It’s an easy-to-use application that can perform complicated tasks such as downscaling the images to the required sizes in an automatic manner, without requiring your intervention. Since it can generate the thumbnails automatically, all that’s left for you to do is choose the photos that will be displayed in the album (drag-and-drop is supported) and choose the album’s skin.

Though it’s easy to use and straightforward, it supports plenty of cool advanced features. For example, it lets you watermark the photos that you add to a gallery. Professional photographers can use the watermarking function to help them sell their photos, especially since this powerful tool allows creating galleries which include shopping carts and support for processing the image metadata. Anyway, if you’re a casual user, you can still benefit a lot from this application anytime you want to quickly and easily create image galleries and share them online. It’s a handy tool suitable for anyone.

This powerful application also comes with handy image editing features, letting you crop the pictures, tune their colors, enhance them using filters, and so on. jAlbum can even handle videos and can convert over 160 different video formats to MP4 which is especially suitable to use on the web. Furthermore, the skins of the albums can be customized in many details to your liking.

To sum it all up, jAlbum is a powerful and comprehensive tool that leaves no room for complaint. Its price is completely justified by a great number benefits this great tool offers.

Pros

  • Easy to use.
  • Can also handle videos.
  • Includes features that help photographers sell their photos.

Cons

  • None.

What's new in version 11.6

- Updated Romanian and Hungarian translations.
- Links may have relative target paths
- Added {buyImageUrl} variable. Exists if images have been published for sale. Skin developers can check for the presence of this variable and simply link to its URL so buyers can purchase the relevant image.
- Bundled with updated skin Turtle 4.5.3
- Developers: Now avoids interpreting complex object-type variables like window, explorer and engine when using the old-style variable syntax. This simplifies using Javascript code that refers to window without the need to surround such references with elements.
Bug fixes:
- Renaming folders caused inconsistent behavior until window was refreshed (since 11.6)
- Convert links to copies broken
- Improved UI updates when titles and keywords change
- Developers: Corrected IO.resolvePath()
- Fixed nullpointer bug in renderer thread

What's new in version 11.2

- The signup procedure is now embedded within the client. Signing up and testing our storage solution is now a far faster procedure than before
- Better error reporting if jAlbum can't connect to jalbum.net storage accounts
- Album objects having file names containing illegal, non web safe characters (like %, # and ?) are now highlighted with warning icons
- Developers: Added Google Maps formatted ${gpsLocation} variable
- Now prevents accidental deletion of remote albums that reside directly at the web root folder
- Updated bundled Turtle skin to 4.2.2
- Fix: Wouldn't launch on old Macs running Java 1.5 if the default skin required Java 1.6.

What's new in version 10.10

- Windows version packaged with an updated installer software.
- Easier to correctly activate license (erroneous trailing spaces are trimmed from the activation code).
- Bundled Base skin updated.

Bug fixes

- Windows version could sometimes trigger security warnings.
- The "IPTC author" field of images could sometimes leak into the xmp title field of images.
- Uploads could sometimes end up with an error in "Notifier" (missing album URL).
- Fix for custom image size error (image specific maxImageWidth etc variables ignored when generating variables).
- Loading album projects by dropping project files onto the dock icon on Mac could sometimes cause errors.
- Fix for not being able to open folders containing double spaces in file names (Windows only).
- More robust against errors reading xml metadata from .info files.
- Fix for calculation of album URL (we sometimes got "No web directory selected").
- Running the Mac version as another user than the installed user would prevent the system standard file chooser from opening.
- Fix for nullpointer exception bug when painting thumbnails in the UI.
[char_desc_2000] => Create online photo albums from your images and movies with this software. jAlbum has built in support for organizing and editing images, but with focus on flexible presentation.
