Development of BluPlusPlus has ended. It is incompatible with jAlbum version 23.0.1 and later. More details at

You should run BluPlusPlus in jAlbum 23.0 or earlier. It may fail in jAlbum 23.0 (although I haven't experienced any failures). If it fails, run it in jAlbum 22.1.

BluPlusPlus was one of the most popular jAlbum skins. It is fully documented with great details and examples, and is highly configurable with an extremely friendly and intuitive user interface. Movies, custom frames (with preview), voice/music annotations, comments, and viewer remarks are among its features. It comes with 14 themes, multiple icon sets and an elegant frame collection.

Refer to UserGuide.txt or hints.jap for a brief explanation on configuring BluPlusPlus. Complete documentation is available on the HOMEPAGE, which includes usage, applications, definitions, FAQs and numerous examples. This can also be reached from the "About" tab in the BPP settings in jAlbum.

Commercial use is allowed, but a jAlbum Pro license is needed.
Modifications of the skin are allowed.


5.1.0 Oct 10, 2019 (current)

- In original slide pages, the "Up one level" button failed: "File not found" (since jAlbum 17.1).

- Some scripts used an obsolete technique for including variables, i.e. $varname. These have been changed to ${varname}. This would probably have caused problems in future versions of jAlbum.
