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:

Local preview:
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, due to security reasons. jAlbum's built-in browser works, however. If you want to test in Chrome please read this sticky:

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!

Commercial use is only allowed if you have a jAlbum Pro license.
Modifications of the skin are allowed.


2.9.6 Jan 16, 2020 (current)

- No need to press the Search button in the "Filtering" box if there's only one select box
- Reset button in Filtering box is dimmed if there's nothing to reset

- Filtering didn't always find images when using "keywords"
- Improved layout for "Filtering and Sort" box
- Comma in Date format triggers bad date range formatting
- Fall back to System date format instead of dd/MM//yy if the corresponding Setting box is empty (unfortunately jAlbum also gave back wrong System date format before v19.3)

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.

The New mark (Red Star) has stopped working in the last few days on the folders. The folders were showing the New mark on Albums uploaded on the 30th of April. The actual thumbnails for the photographs still show the New mark. I was using Tiger 2.51 but today updated to 2.5.6 but still not seeing the New indicator on Folders. I am using “Added to Album” as the reference point.
