Min. jAlbum version

The Fancybox skin combines the popular Justified-Gallery type of grid (images maintain their aspect ratio, and are resized to have the same height, it is also used by Flickr) and fancybox, probably the world’s most popular light-box script. See and

So like the Slide Show 4 and the PhotoSwipe skin, it is a small single page html5 compliant skin which gives maximum attention to your photos, because it will fill your screen with your photo, by adapting the image size to the screen size of your tablet or computer. The focus is not lead away by other small pictures or text (except the optional image captions).

Navigation and control is possible via buttons, via the keyboard on a PC and via one finger swipes on the iPhone or iPad and other touch screen devices. The buttons at the top of the index page are optional and can be hidden or displayed by clicking the theme image or the album title.
Navigation on the slide page: Swipe left / right to the next or previous image, spread to zoom in, swipe up or down to close the slide page and return to the index page.

The skin has a responsive layout of the thumbnails gallery: it make an elegant image gallery with the Justified Gallery library. A Justified Image Grid respects the original aspect ratio, no detail is lost due to cropping. It is also possible to display the thumbnails in a grid without the use of the Justified-Gallery.
The height of the thumbnails can be selected as a % of the screen height.

Seven transition types are selectable by the viewer. Several other settings can be changed by the viewer like the button size and the font size, which is is useful for small devices like an iPhone and in case you have troubles reading small letters. It is also possible to change here the viewing time for a slide in the optional slide show presentation and the viewer can decide to show the Slide image always in fullscreen mode

This skin can handle large image descriptions on the slide page: the description can be displayed below the image with a 'more info' text-link which displays a longer description below the image or in a new modal window. It is also possible to display long descriptions in a side panel right of the image,

This skin allows you to use one central resources folder for all your albums.

You can use plain text or html code both in the album description and in the slide descriptions.

Via 7 optional links on the index page, displayed as standard text buttons, as icon buttons, in a tool-bar or in the menu-bar at the top of the index page, you can add links to other albums or web-pages in a new window or in the same window. You can also display a web-page in a frame on the index page. The optional responsive menu-bar can be replaced by a Hamburger button on small devices.

Optional Facebook and email 'Share' button on the index page and each slide has an optional 'Download' link.

An album may contain a mix of photos and movies.

jAlbums web-locations are supported:
You can make a top album of albums or display the web-location in the slide page.
It is also used to show YouTube or Vimeo video’s.

If GPS information is available in a photo, the location can be displayed in Google Maps.

Use my program MakeMap to display the photos in a Google Maps or Google Earth map with links to the slide pages.

If the album contains wide (panorama-) pictures, an expand icon is added to the tool-bar on the slide page, if check-mark 'Spherical Panoramic image' or 'Cylindrical Panoramic image' in the Panoramic image panel for an image has been set. For a 360° cylindrical panorama, you should set also set check-mark '360° panorama', in that case you can endless scroll through the panorama. If you set the 'Spherical Panoramic image' check-mark, the panorama can be viewed in Jérémys Photo Sphere Viewer.

The slide page can be embedded in a web-page without the use of an iframe or JSON data.

Modifications of the skin are allowed.


1.3.8 Jun 15, 2019 (current)

Links are now displayed as bold, so you can now give the links in a description the same text color as normal text.

If the new check-mark 'Use Bootstrap to create menu with background color:' on the 'General' tab is set, the menu is made with the Bootstrap library.
The background color of that menu is determined by the next color selector and next combo-box defines the alignment of the menu.

With a Bootstrap menu, the same colors as used in the Bootstrap menu are used for the Back buttons, in the About and other template files and for the buttons defined in the links tab if no icons are used and buttons are not displayed in a tool-bar.

The Bootstrap menu can collapse to an Hamburger icon:
If check-mark 'Replace menu bar by Hamburger button' is cleared, the Hamburger button will never be displayed and if set and the next width field is empty, the Hamburger button will always be displayed. If check-mark 'Replace menu bar by Hamburger button' is set and a width is entered in the next field, the menu will be replaced by a Hamburger button at the indicated view-port width.

New menu home icon home icon with a color equal to the menu text color.

If check-mark 'Stop after the last slide' has been set and a slide-show has been started, the slide page will be closed after the last slide has been displayed.

I check-mark 'Show info window if you open the album' was set, the modal info page was not displayed at startup this has been corrected. However you should not set that check-mark if an album has folders!

Some layout changes in the Slide page / Options tab.
