I'm using Chameleon, aqua-Dark.

The files in this directory are files containing te tracks covered in the album, formats.gpx, and .csv, in some cases ..gdb (garmin) and .kml (GoogleEarth).

Ah, that explains the problem. jAlbum doesn't recognize those files as objects that could be included in an album, so if they're sitting in the image directory, or in a folder below that, they'll just be ignored.

If you open the program directory - Tools, Open directories, Program directory - go to the system subdirectory, and look at filetypes.xml, you'll see the extensions that jAlbum recognizes. You could add those other file extensions, and provide a representing icon for them (in the program's res subdirectory). I'm not sure what a skin would do with them, however.

ok, this helped.
Added this to the filetypes.xml file:

<type name="GPS track files" icon="track.png">
<ext>gdb</ext>
<ext>gpx</ext>
<ext>kmz</ext>
</type>

and created an icon file (see attachement). Now Chameleon processes the files as if they were images, and so the directory is shown as expected.

This leads to another feature...
