External tools

jAlbum Tools are extensions to the functionality of the jAlbum application. They can be launched from the External Tools submenu or from the command line (the -runTool switch). A "Tool" is actually a "BeanShell script" that is put in the tools directory folder (Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + C or Menu/Tools/Open directories/config) of the jAlbum install directory. They get their names from their file name and are therefore not translated. Hopefully people will contribute with more tools as time goes by. For all of the tools that are bundled with jAlbum see the Menus help page

There is a 'Tools' forum in jAlbum's user Forum, for posting tools and extensions and even requests.

The following are a selection of curated tools listed by function, in alphabetical order, to make finding them easier. (NOTE: this page is being updated as of 27 Aug 2020, this note will be deleted when the list is completed).
