This is the kind of non-reproducible error that always makes me suspect a faulty jAlbum or skin installation. It really takes only a few minutes to clear things out and start fresh, and you won't lose any of your album projects.

First step is to do a complete uninstall/reinstall of jAlbum. Don't skip any of the steps:

A new installation should bring in the latest version of Tiger, but just to make sure, after launching the newly-installed jAlbum, hit the Tiger skin page and reinstall it.

That project is working properly. I can change folder thumbnails on all the folders and it generates correctly.

Shall I just rename this project and keep using it since it's working?

Is there a way to have the skin's Hero strip image be different than the top folder thumbnail?

Thanks,
Dave

You may as well, there may be a corrupt file or something in your original project. You might want to replace the images with the original ones though.

Just drag an image to the theme image place holder in the folder properties pane, see https://jalbum.net/help/en/jAlbum/Explore#Folder_properties_pane

I did wonder about that and if Dave's (Windows) jAlbum installation has not been rebuilt from scratch in the last few years it might be a good idea - even if he now has a working project.
