5.1.0 Oct 10, 2021 (current)

We use now PhotoSwipe library version 5.1.5

New check-box "With slide transitions" on the slide options tab, to allow simple slide transitions.

The video overlay-icon has been made smaller.

PDF-files and audio-files dropped in the Explorer window are now correctly displayed.

User variable 'audioImg' can be used to add a sound track to an image, like:
audioImg bensound-summer.mp3

Automatic start of the sound track is now possible on a PC if check-mark 'Start the music automatically ... ' on the Music tab has been checked.

Next audio file formats are supported: mp3, m4a, and aac.

New check-box 'Allow downloading the music track' on the music tab.

If you click now somewhere on the background (so not on a text or combo-box) the viewing settings window, the viewing settings window will close.

New check-box on the Index page / Folders tab: 'Show comment as hint'.

Gallery type Justified Gallery uses now the same values for the Thumbnails border width, border color, space to border and radius as the other two gallery types.

Justified Gallery thumbnail caption shifted in case borders are used.

Masonry Gallery code improved, relative size is no longer supported and if 'Desired # Masonry gallery columns' is 0, the number of columns is automatically adapted for the used device. Both the horizontal and vertical gap between the boxes in a Masonry gallery is determined by the 'Thumbnails horizon margins', so you can make the 'Thumbnails horizon margins' 0, unless you like a larger vertical gap between the boxes. If the Masonry gallery has been selected, the setting of check-mark 'Compress panorama thumbnails' is ignored, panorama thumbnails are never compressed in this case.

The PhotoSwipe skin combines the PhotoSwipe-5 Lightbox with 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). See and .
It is also possible to select a masonry layout for the thumbnails in the gallery. The skin contains many options to which allows you with possible extra files in the output directory to adapt it to your needs.
The PhotoSwipe skin has the same index page as the FancyBox skin, but the Slide page is replaced by the PhotoSwipe JavaScript gallery developed by Dmitry Semenov, see
Like the Slide Show 4 and the FancyBox 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).
There are several options to create the theme image and the album title may be displayed at any place in the theme image or above the theme image.
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.
Some 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 full-screen mode The slide show can be started from the slide page, from the index page and fully automatically, where the index page is skipped.
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 or below the images if there is more space.
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.Twitter, Pinterest, WhatsApp and email 'Share' button on the index and slide 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 videos. Videos can be started automatically (if supported by the browser).
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.
