On my Albums Page http://jalbum.net/en/users/PHJones/albums the thumbnail pictures are of a very poor quality and I seem to be unable to change it to a different better quality one. Another problem is in the Guest Book comments about album updates no longer appear.

Part of the problem is that the thumbnails on the profile page are quite a bit larger than typical album thumbnails. Try choosing one of the slide images, instead.

I'm suprised that you say you can't change the image choice. When you hover on a thumbnail and choose Edit, then hover on the image, do you not get an icon in the upper right corner that, when hovered, lets you choose another image? (See screenshot.)

Thanks Problem now sorted it was a problem with the url to images, do you have to do this every time you update the album.

I think the problem in your case may be that there are no slide images at the top level of the album - everything is in folders. So, the standard routine for creating the profile page listing can't find an image to use. It can see only the thumbnails.

Just a guess....

Your guess is correct. There are only thumbnails to be found in the root. The thumbnails in that album are also smaller (90x60) than the default for Turtle (200x150), so that's why the album icon is worse than usual.
