Eddie Clayton runs a successful business as a pro photographer.
-> Take a look at his photography (http://www.eddieclaytonphoto.com) and you'll understand why the word successful is in the above sentence. Eddie is a new jAlbum user, but quite familiar with photo and website services.
How did you get in contact with jAlbum?
I have created websites using many methods. Everything from scratch html, standalone apps, expensive Photoshop plug-ins, and Lightroom webmodule extensions. Although these methods all created professional looking websites, they were all difficult to tailor to my taste and tedious to maintain. Just as I was becoming extremely frustrated while trying to update my site (with a well known Lightroom extension), I came across the jAlbum article in Shutterbug. I previously thought that jAlbum was just a photo-hosting site like Flickr or Shutterfly, in which I have no interest. The article excited me and I went immediately to your website and downloaded the jAlbum trial. Well, it took me about 10 minutes of experimentation to realize that this was just what I had been looking for. I re-connected and purchased the Pro version immediately.
How does jAlbum help in your work flow?
I spent maybe 6 hours with jAlbum generating my site. I then spent another 10 hours refining my photographs to look the way I wanted them to look for the site. I am ecstatic. My site has a professional user-friendly interface and appearance. I am currently reviewing additional photographs I plan to add to the site. I get to spend my computer time tweaking photos instead of fighting with site software. Bravo jAlbum!
Tell us about your customers
I make a substantial portion of my income selling prints. I have discovered that my best customers are Doctors, Dentists and other professionals with "waiting rooms". Its important to have a professional and user-friendly site to service these buyers.

Thank you Eddie for this interview and most of all for using jAlbum!
I agree with you tordis :)
You can link to the albums from any source. Upload to www.yoursite.com/album1 etc.
Thank you very much Jason. Its better to keep files in seperate folder and link them with subdomains (for e.g.. tour2013.learnk12com), right?
jAlbum produces stand alone web pages that can be uploaded to any website. We don't have any integration with Wordpress or Joomla. The easiest is to upload your jAlbum galleries to separate folders on your website and simply link to them from your main site. You can also use the embed code to iframe the album directly into one of your html pages.
We do have an album badge often used by bloggers: http://jalbum.net/en/create-badge
Jason is any way to integrate jAlbum with Wordpress or Joomla like cms?
Yes, please see my previous answer below. Thanks
Is it fully designed with jAlbum or did you used any other tweaks? Nice website but bg is too dark.
Hi, The website is created with only jAlbum and the skin Turtle. Make sure to update to the latest version of both to enjoy all the new features.
The JAlbum that is featured in this article looks like it would "plug" into a normal HTML document in a way that I do not recall seeing JAlbum creations doing.
Which JAlbum is this?
