2.0.0 Aug 26, 2011 (current)
* Major version change for major addition. New filter - called Phong Filter - which implements the phong illumination model. This allows for specular highlights which is what's seen with reflections on water. Different stylesheets in the skin use different diffuse components (see pictures for what I mean) and all have a white light (when specular highlights is enabled which it is by default).
* In addition, the Reflection Filter has a better (in my view) shading method. It is not enabled by default but I think it looks much cleaner and it is perhaps more easy on the darkness (meaning not as dark and easier to see reflection). The opacity option is for darkness - the lower the value, the faster it will get darker.
* Some other internal changes that won't effect usage.
Note that the phong filter is a bit more cpu intensive based on how it works, but everyone I've shown so far likes it a lot.
Let me know if there's any problems!
Note as of 2016/04/14:
I do not foresee myself ever working on this skin (I don't see why it would need to be updated anyhow) - or jAlbum again. I have far too much going on in my life and I lost interest in jAlbum a long time ago now. I am keeping this here because it works (although I won't say there aren't cases where it doesn't) and because I like the filters if nothing else.
Take a moment to rediscover your past and reflect upon your images in a uniquely designed photo album. With Reflections, you can reflect your images giving you a different view of your photos, pictures or images. Includes a light and dark theme to get you started, or you can make your own theme.
The slide pages use the Exposure jQuery plugin built by JAlbum's Kristoffer. The images are reflected with a filter I wrote a while back. The Reflection filter will, by default settings, darken the image as if it's against or on a glossy block (black by default). You can change the colour of this (see Colors tab in the skin UI) or disable it all-together (Uncheck General tab -> Reflecting -> Paint reflection)
You can also disable the Reflection filter if you prefer a normal photo.
The generated pages are CSS and XHTML compliant as well.
