Story skin is a single page skin in which you can mix various content types; smaller and larger photos with text. You can even add custom sections of text or just any content.

By default the skin decides whether an image is displayed as thumbnail, wide image or full width based on its aspect ratio (use the crop tool!), however you can manually select it too.

This skin is unique also because you can mix images, folders and custom content in any order.

I also used Turtle for years. Great skin to use on a PC, but not on a smaller smartphone screen. I am nu experimenting Story. with till now a quite positive experience. What I miss in the documentation is in fact a complete project which I can open in JAlbum. Than is much more easy to see how the settings where done. From the example website it's sometimes complex to understand how the setup in Jalbum was done. By default the folder name and description are positioned at the right on large screens and on the bottom for small screens. Is there a way to position it on top for small screens? for me it's more logical to have a name and description before the folder album than after. How to do this? Regards, Rob

It's enough to ask the same thing in one place: the forum or the support desk is preferred. I'll probably add more folder thumbnail layouts, however adding caption above is not something I thought of originally.

I have been using Turtle for years. I recently updated to Tiger. Great skins! Job well done and thank you. However, I find this Story skin is a complete disaster. I can't seem to figure out how to use it. I have spent hours trying to make a simple page that looks great and I failed. The thing I hate the most is the top section which is my theme image. It has some kind of weird color cast, small page name. and the dumb bouncing arrow. Darn right ugly. I will continue to use Tiger for now. I just don't have the time to explore this skin any further. Good Luck!

Sorry for the bad experience. Definitely will not fit for every one. The color overlay can be reduced or removed through the "opacity" or "alpha" setting of the "Hero overlay color". We have just changed jAlbum in order to start the color picker right off with HSV or HLS color sliders which has the opacity settings, unlike the "Swatches panel".

WOW: The story skin looks like something I've been wishing for. I especially like the ability to include text pages. It sure would be nice to have this facility in TIGER and TURTLE. In case I'm being unclear, I'm talking about "Custom content . . . Text blocks . . .." Please let David know. Thanks for the advances in "skinology."

This is something I might use later, but the learning curve for me right now looks long and steep. What a great idea though, for those just starting out- This could be your website, your gallery, your bio, your blog, and your online store. Wow. I wish I'd had this 10 years ago, it would have saved me hundreds of hours or work and frustration dealing with multiple sites and upload problems. Again, wow. You guys are incredible.
