Min. jAlbum version

* Gromit is a skin that produces clean, simple web pages that are responsive to the viewport width.
* Customization options include control over page layout (caption positioning, thumbnail spacing, and so on), borders, caption content, font attributes, and colors.
* Albums may include self-hosted videos, YouTube videos, Vimeo videos, and audio files.
* Support for Google fonts and WOFF files.
* Support for Google maps, if images are geotagged.
* Extensive support for metadata display.
* Support for providing links to external sites.
* Albums may include an information page that includes descriptive text, a small image, and an email contact link.
* Navigation tooltip texts may be specified in any language.
* Allows the user to insert a favicon link, a copyright notice, a meta description, a meta robots tag, and Google Analytics code.
* CSS and HTML code may be inserted into the finished albums via entries in the user interface.
* The skin produces valid HTML5/CSS3: it supports all current browsers.
* Flash is not used. There are no HTML tables in the layout.
* The skin produces separate slide pages, which is more SEO-friendly than pages that use dynamic routines to display the images.

Commercial use is only allowed if you have a jAlbum Pro license.
Modifications of the skin are allowed.


35.0.0 Aug 24, 2016 (current)

* Option to choose "Link to scaled-down images only" for the album, but have original GIF's used on the slide pages. This is intended to support animated GIF's - if scaled, jAlbum converts them to PNG files, and they lose their animation.

My installed version of Gromit does not include the header area or gradient background option. How can I enable this?

Please post questions in the forum, where I can answer properly (with things like screenshots and links). Thanks.

I've just tried this skin and I'm immediately impressed. It was the only one of a few that I tested that produced error free W3C HTML 5. Lots of custom options and works well on PC and tablet. I like that in your comments input that a line break is recognised and I no longer need to use the line break 'br' tag. If only all albums are like this! Changing skins may mean that I would have to either add or delete the 'br' tag. Otherwise I'd get a double line break on none at all. This is where for consistency , it ought to be common for all skins. For this to happen it would need to be part of the jAlbum interface. Proper text editor input for bold and italics and spell checker thrown in would be nice too. Not your remit I know, but for David Ekholm and team.

Good lad Gromit. :-) Thanks to the custom option, I've managed to get my web site looking as I wanted it. The "Custom | Background Image" option is a small transparent PNG which allows the main page background to show through.

where can I find gromit skin for jalbum 11?


jGromit one year ago

On the left side of this page, click "Show All," and scroll down. Gromit version 11.0.0 is the last one that's compatible with jAlbum 11. You won't get any of the newer features, however, including responsiveness - I strongly suggest you upgrade to jAlbum 12.

You can nor use arrows key


jGromit 4 years ago

That's correct. Using the arrow keys requires Javascript, and this skin does not use Javascript for any purpose.


jGromit 3 years ago

I've now included some keyboard navigation. It does require Javascript, but it's inevitable that JS has crept into the skin. There's just no other way to accommodate certain functions.
