Min. jAlbum version

The PhotoSwipe skin has the same index page as the Slide Show 4 skin, but the Slide page is replaced by the PhotoSwipe JavaScript gallery developed by Dmitry Semenov, see

So like the Slide Show 4 skin it is a small single page html5 compliant skin which gives maximum attention to your photos, because it will fill your screen with your photo, by adapting the image size to the screen size of your tablet or computer. The focus is not lead away by other small pictures or text.

Navigation and control is possible via buttons, via the keyboard on a PC and via one finger swipes on the iPhone or iPad and other touch screen devices. The buttons at the top of the index page are optional and can be hidden or displayed by clicking the theme image or the album title.
Navigation on the slide page: Swipe left / right to the next or previous image, spread to zoom in, drag to pan, pinch to zoom out or close, tap to toggle the controls, double-tap to zoom, swipe up or down to close the slide page and return to the index page.

The skin has a responsive layout of the thumbnails gallery: you can choose for an elastic table where the thumbnails grow or change if the window size changes or you can choose to reduce the number of thumbnails per row if the window width is reduced.

An album may contain a mix of photos and movies. For thumbnails of movies on the index page a special border color may be selected.

This skin allows you to use one central resources folder for all your albums

Several settings can be changed by the viewer like the button size and the font size, which is is useful for small devices like an iPhone and in case you have troubles reading small letters. It is also possible to change here the viewing time for a slide in the optional slide show presentation.

You can display the album embedded in your web page with an iframe and you can show the first enlarged picture from a link on your web page without displaying the index page with thumb-nails.

You can choose for fixed shape thumbnails or for thumbnails with the full aspect ratio (no part of the picture cropped, but showing everything).

You can use plain text or html code both in the album description and in the slide descriptions.

Via 7 optional links on the index page, displayed as standard text buttons, as icon buttons, in a tool-bar or in the menu-bar at the top of the index page, you can add links to other albums or web-pages in a new window or in the same window. You can also display a web-page in a frame on the index page.

Optional Facebook and email 'Share' button on the index page and for each slide share links to Facebook, Twitter, email and Pinterest. If GPS information is available in a photo, the location can be displayed in Google Maps. Finally each slide has an optional 'Download' link.

If the album contains wide (panorama-) pictures, an expand icon is added above the image on the slide page, if check-mark 'Panoramic image' in the Panoramic image panel for an image has been set. For a 360° panorama, you should set also set check-mark '360° panorama', in that case you can endless scroll through the panorama.

jAlbums 14 web-locations are supported:
You can make a top album of albums or display the web-location in the slide page as an image with a link to open the website in a new tab or you can display the website instead of a slide image. Via extra buttons you can navigate to other parts of the album. You can use this mode to display YouTube videos and/or external panorama pages in-line in the album.

Commercial use is allowed only if you pay a 3rd party license.
Modifications of the skin are allowed.


1.6.0 Jul 17, 2017 (current)

Panorama image panel added. If check-mark 'Panoramic image' is set, an expansion button will be displayed above the slide image. Clicking that button will stretch the panorama image so that the full window height is used and you can scroll the panorama horizontally. On a PC scrolling is done automatically if you move the mouse cursor left or right. If check-mark '360° panorama' is set, scrolling continues infinitely on a PC.

On the slide page settings tab is a check-mark 'Replace web location slide image by the web site' added, which allows you to view in the album the website instead of the web location image. To prevent that a possible play bar is hidden by the PhotoSwipe title bar, no title will be displayed over these websites. On a touch device, you can go to the next slide by swiping over the top tool-bar or by using the arrow buttons left and right of the website. These arrows should also be used for navigation on a PC.

The full screen options are now also enabled on Android systems.

It is now possible to add a 'Show location' button in the upper right corner above a slide image.

Solved problems:
Problem with iPhone videos in portrait mode solved.
Google Maps window was sometimes not correct, close button not visible. This has been corrected.
Resize problems with Map page and panorama page solved.
PhotoSwipe menu-zoom problem solved in a new version of photoswipe.min.js
After the download function, the pop-up stays no longer open.

Andre, Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. After your email, I uninstalled Firefox and then did a clear install of it. That seems to have solved the problem. I did check that the browser view was reset though before doing this. I have not uploaded the site, am playing with different responsive skins and trying to integrate them into my website.


AndreWolff 6 months ago

Ok nice to hear the problem is solved! I still like to get your link if the result is uploaded!

I have been looking at the code using Firefox's Inspector and the body font seems to be reset. The code is: instead of the 16px also I noticed that the H1 Tag is being reset : My setting in Album settings are Font-size: 16px and album title font-size : 22px Hope this info helps.


AndreWolff 6 months ago

Well I can't reproduce this problem in my Firefox 50.0.2 version. I see in the inspector indeed font-size: 16px; with a line erased, but that is correct because this is modified in my Javascript SetViewersettings function.. What happens if you change the font size to 200% or 50% in the ste viewer settings window? Please give a link to your album, so that I can check it!

Photoswipe and Firefox 50.1.0 I created a basic photoswipe album and when I display it in firefox the fontsizes and not displayed correctly. They seem to be defaulting to 8px instead of the 16px in the settings. When displayed in Internet explorer the fonts are correct. Any suggestions of how to fix this?

How come you can't see a preview of the album after it is created? Very frustrating!!! Stephen Parezo


AndreWolff 7 months ago

I don't know what you mean: I just checked it, if the album is ready after you clicked the Make button, you see the result in the internal browser if check-mark 'Use internal browser' in the preferences is set. And if it is cleared, as I use it myself always, you see a dialog box where you can click 'Preview' to see the result in your default browser

Thanks for this wondeful skin, man! Just a couple of things you might consider to review in a future release ... 1) Adding the name of the pictures in the thumbnails page works fine, while if you add the filename in the Slide page it has problems showing the brackets () [] and other special characters. 2) In the slide page, usually if you click on the photo, it enlarges it. But if the picture cannot be enlarged, if you click on it it takes you back to the thumbnail page and this might be unusual and disorientating for the user. This is not a request for a change, just a comment :-) Thanks again for the great job on this skin!!!


AndreWolff 11 months ago

Your point 1: I did test this and I see no problem with these characters, see my test page Please give a link to the album showing this problem. Your point 2: I seem to remember that I have seen that on a PC, but not on a mobile device. So again, please give me a link to the page showing this behavior I think it will difficult for me to repair this, because it is caused by the PhotSwipe JavaScript gallery kernel code written by  Dmitry Semenov. But if you can reproduce it, I can try to report it to him. Thanks for reporting the problems, but please use next time the forum:
