My default browser is Chrome, so if I preview a local album made with the Tiger skin, I see a red error message, see screenshot TigerChrome.
If I next open the local album with the FireFox browser, I can display the result without problems, see screenshot TigerFirefox

So if I could define the preview browser for jAlbum, I can display a local Tiger album directly without problems.

A very valid wish. I hope to be able to implement it, but it will be more effort requiring as there are now Java APIs for this, so implementation needs to be platform specific. So it's at least 3 times the work.

I believe you mean no Java API's, correct?

Would a keyboard option, like SHIFT + Alt clicking on the preview icon resulting in an ‘Open with…’ be easier. It would be more flexible.

You may use a local web server, see screen shot and http://jalbum.net/forum/thread.jspa?threadID=53211&tstart=0 Users will appreciate access through WLAN.

Too dififcult to remember for most users, however if David can’t implement the proposal, it is an idea to select such an option in the Preferences, so that you get ‘Open with ...’ with a normal click. This enables you to test the album locally with several browsers.
