Among many fun and exciting things, this skin allows MULTIPLE, simultaneous image pop-ups on the index page. In normal English, you can create a photo collage using several images. One can also (easily) add a whole lot of extraneous nonsense (words & images). Please check out the sample album and at least check out the the first slide image. Somewhat surprisingly, ShowLite seems to even still work with jAlbum 25.1, whoopee.

This skin allows for:
1) 'normal' albums with index and slide pages OR
2) an index page with lightbox (pop up) images OR
3) albums with both lightbox AND slide images (default behavior)
4) option to include a sectional magnifying function on the slide pages)
5) extensive commenting (using internal Side Notes and/or external txt and or IPTC)

Easy to use UI. Lightbox, magnifier and skin free for private or commercial use.

This skin has been vastly improved over time by significant (and on-going) contributions from JimBerry, JGromit and most recently by RobM.

The latest and best ShowLite. Incredibly enough it seems to even work with jAlbum version 26. Still free and worth every penny. GPS has been added to EXIF data for the locationally challenged or those wanting to impress their friends on exactly where they have been, the default slide size has been reduced to better fit the screen (and please forget viewing great images on expensively small phone screens), some text cleanup for added elucidation, and miscellaneous fixes no one has ever complained about before but seemed like a good idea. Oh, there is now only one icon set. The other started acting out on its own and has now been buried until it learns to behave more consistently. Hope you explore and enjoy.
