Install skin

You can also install the skin by unzipping this file into the skin folder.

Min. jAlbum version

* This skin is a specialized subset of the Matrix skin. It does not produce a thumbnail page - visitors to the page are immediately placed in a slideshow of the images.
* Almost all of the options that apply to the images in Matrix are present in this skin. Please refer to the Matrix skin page and release notes for more information.
* Because there is no thumbnail page, there is no way to navigate to folders. Folders contained in the album project will cause an error, and album creation is aborted.
* Navigation to a home page is provided by placing an "up" icon on the page, or by placing a link in the control bar.
* Because the skin is using a hidden index page, there are no options for header material (other than a title bar), footer material, and so on. If you want those kinds of elements, you should create them outside of MatrixSlide, then embed the MatrixSlide album in an iframe.
* Produces code that passes W3C validation as HTML5 and CSS3.

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


30.0.0 Nov 5, 2016 (current)

* The fixed-size graphic icon for a download link in the caption area has been replaced with a CSS-generated download icon. The size and border width may be controlled, and the icon colors are coordinated with the preset styles. When using the Custom style, the colors of the icon - arrow, arrow hover, border, and background - may also be controlled.
* When using one of the preset styles, the color of the uplink arrow has been changed to match the caption text color and download icon arrow color.
* Automatic deletion of the unneeded folder icon file that the jAlbum core places in the output under some circumstances.

I am currently using your latest version and need to know how to prevent the photo's within a album from being downloaded Thanks Richard

You can't. If a site visitor can see an image, he can grab a copy of it, one way or another.

Congratulations for you skin, it's great, responsive, with a lot of settings option! I have just a quick question: if I open the MatrixSlide settings in jAlbum, the "Custom" tab is inactive. Is it normal? Is there any way to activate it? Thanks, Greg

Choose the "Custom" style of the skin. See:

Congratulations for this almost perfect skin for me. I said almost because after every video I have to click on play to continue the slideshow. Is this normal, or is there a way to automatically resume the slide show? Thank you. (Translation French / English by Google)

The slideshow script has no way of detecting that a video has ended. So, the only thing the skin can do is pause the slideshow when it hits a video.

I really do like the skin and I just have one question: Is there any way to present a panorama in its size (with the possibility to scroll in the Picture)? If not, the panaorma will fill the size but it comes quite narrow. But anyway: great done!

Yes. See the user's manual:

And see the fourth item in the sample album:

How about an option to let the video fill the entire browser window?

The Highslide JS expander that the skin uses doesn't have any such option. Of course, your site visitor can always hit the fullscreen icon within the video player.
