Min. jAlbum version

Tiger skin is the successor of the popular Turtle skin, featuring responsive layout and inherited numerous features from Photoblogger skin too.

IMPORTANT! Please read this:

Switching from Turtle:
Please note, as Tiger is based on a different language than Turtle, the function calls has changed too. Custom pages therefore might carry old code from Turtle skin, which causes errors.
Install the tool from here: to fix the old HTT files - if you had one - after importing a Turtle album into Tiger!

Local preview:
In older jAlbum the local preview in Chrome might got blocked by the browser due to security reasons. No problem with the built-in browser or jAlbum 18+.

Hi Laca, thank you very much for your work on this skin. I have a feature idea. Is it possible to show the GPX track with geotagged images? For example, you could show the hiking trail of a photo series on the map view. Best regards

Until version 2.60, tiger was able to include three buttons below photos: 'download'; 'metadata'; and 'map'. Newer versions of Tiger only give 'metadata'. the other two are gone, for some reason. Installing the older versions solved the problem. I therefore now use older versionsof Tiger. Is this problem indeed due to changes in Tiger, and can it be solved?

"Download" appears only if you include originals (either globally or by right-click -> Include original). The map appears only if you provide the "Google API" key in "Sections / Map" panel. Perhaps Google allows map in old pages without a key, but for new pages it's a requirement.

"Testing the Local album (Preview) does not work in some browsers with the default settings. This is because Tiger is based on a database (JSON format) to which the access from local HTML files is limited" It indeed doesn't work with Firefox 68.0 Workaround: In about:config privacy.file_unique_origin;false (Of course the security level is now lower)
