Make a copy of the local album project


To have a copy of an album can be really useful if you want to experiment with settings and skins but are afraid of destroying your album when doing so. In this way you can experiment with the skins and settings and when you find something you like you can safely add it to the real album.

1. Browse to the album project in file system

You will probably find the album project in the folder on your computer called My Albums. But in this example I'm using the Sample portfolio which is not stored in My Albums. I can see where the album is stored by looking at the path shown in the explore view.

This is another album on my computer which is stored in the My albums folder. This is probably how your path will look like.


2. Copy the album project

When you have found the album project in your file system it's time to make a copy of it.


Right click the folder and click Copy "Album title". Or you can mark the folder and press ctrl+C.

Then right click anywhere and click Paste Item. Or press ctrl + V.

The copy of the album folder will probably get a default name like in this case, Sample Portfolio Copy. The album will get the same name as the folder so you can rename the folder if you want the album to have another Title.


3. Drag and drop the copied album to jAlbum

Open the Empty project in jalbum and drag and drop the copied album folder to jalbum and the new copy of the album will open.
