Hope springs eternal. 4-Jan-2020:

Removal of obsolete or troublesome features

  • Remove the Embed album option, or gray it out unless the skin includes its own embed.htt file. Embedding in an iframe should be discouraged.
  • Get rid of default image ordering - it just creates confusion. Also, allow ordering of a selected subset of the objects. See:
  • Is it time to retire the Webview integrated browser? Lots of missing features (some CSS, things like a developer's console). It also gives rise to the confusing situation in which an album is updated even though the user hasn't chosen to Make Album, just to keep the preview current. At the same time, get rid of Apply on the settings panels. The distinction between Apply and OK is almost impossible to explain, and they behave differently depending upon the type of preview the user has chosen. All a bit of a mess.

Changed features

New features

  • Extend Adjust camera date to videos, since videos seem to contain only UTC timestamps. I would not attempt to adjust the video creation date in accordance with the user's current time zone. That would actually produce a different result if the user made the album in December, but then made it again in July. Better to stick to extracting UTC, but letting the user manually reset that to what he knows was the actual recording time.
  • Add option to automatically generate http://localhost/ as the URL for local preview. Needed if you're working on a website that has relative links. The embedded web server isn't "file system aware," so it can't find resources that are outside of the album project. See
  • If metadata-extractor is extended to support it, populate gpsLocation with the GPS coordinates from an MP4, and allow coordinates to be added or altered in the Location panel in edit mode. See
  • Provide new setMakeImages() and setMakeVideos() methods, parallel to setMakeThumbs(). (NoPages skin could really use this.) See:

Need something, but I'm not even sure what it would look like

  • Folder-specific settings (without using a customUI).
