Ref. Preferences>General>Preview>Windowed

It also provides a quick way of seeing how your album will look on various devices, to select a device to emulate click on the 'mobile devices' icon and select a device/size from the dropdown list. You can rotate the 'device' by clicking on the rotate icon, toggling between landscape to portrait orientation.

Just discovered this, nice feature! Is it possible to add to these options? If not, can I request an update to some more modern devices/sizes, please?

Thanks.

You can do that with the Google Chrome and other browsers in development mode, press F12 if an album is displayed on a PC with Chrome.

Thanks for the pointer!

I am a bit non-plussed, though. I set up the screen resolution for a Samsung S7 (and S3), and Chrome presents something much different to how it actually appears on the devices.

I went back to jAlbum and the built-in browser, and had to use the "Galaxy Note 3 (*360 x 640*)" to make it look like it does on my S7 (which has a far higher screen resolution in pixels).

Maybe I'm missing something ......

Hi David,

I was wondering about this .... my S7 is 1440 x 2560 pixels, but the emulation looks nothing like the phone. I don't know what to make of it, and so don't see the use of adding to the list .... :(
