Get jAlbum for any platform

Please select a download appropriate to your operating system:

For versions without bundled Java, jAlbum needs at least Java 8. Check your java version here. If you don't have Java installed, get it here. It's free.

Having trouble installing? See the Installation help below,
if that doesn't help post a question in our friendly forum.


Zip version: If you are having trouble using the installers, don't like installers or just want to make a minor update, try downloading jAlbum without an installer as a zip archive.

CD-ROM distribution: Magazines wanting to bundle jAlbum with their issues can contact us to get a CD-ROM version that is already bundled with the latest Java.
