JAlbum – Web photo album creator

By | June 5, 2007

JAlbumJAlbum is an easy-to-use album creator for your digital images. It comes with lots of skins and you can also download extra skins from the JAlbum website. It supports 31 languages. It has an in-built smart FTP to upload your photos directly to the website. Your host does not need to support php, mysql or any advanced features. It runs nicely with thumbnails, photos, and simple HTML files.

JAlbum creates index pages with thumbnails and slide shows from the images supplied. You can choose the folder or drag and drop the photos onto the software, choose the skin, press “Make Album”, and you are done with the sleek online photo album. You can add watermark, apply the filters, add logos to images, rotate them, and add borders. It also has a feature of “smart upload” that only uploads newly added files whenever you add some more photos to your old album. Moreover it’s a free software.

Some of its features:

» Ease of use. Just drag and drop an image folder and press “Make album”.
» Flexibility. While many competitors offer some degree of customization through user interface controls or simple templates, JAlbum allows you to generate virtually any imaginable album look as it allows the album designer to use any HTML mixed with JAlbum variables and interpreted java to define the album look.
» Works anywhere. With JAlbum you generate static HTML web albums so there is no need for extra software to view albums, not on the server side either (just a plain web server). You can put an album on a CD-ROM too if you wish.
» Runs anywhere. JAlbum is made in the Java programming language so it runs not only on Windows machines, but also on Macintosh OS X and Unix systems like Linux (That’s the “J” in “JAlbum”). Being a Java program it needs a VM (Virtual Machine) that adopts its code for each machine. I recommend Java 1.5 (or “Java5”) from www.java.com
