News and Updates

  • Introducing the new and fully responsive "Tiger" skin that's intended to replace Turtle
  • New stylish dark user interface look - Darcula. (If you prefer the old look, change back under Preferences)
  • New album object type: "Web locations". Web locations are objects that can refer to any web page, not just local ones. This opens for some really interesting new applications for jAlbum. See for example this album collecting popular TED talks on YouTube.

    To add a "Web location" to your album, drop the web page onto jAlbum or select New page->Web location. Why not use this feature to make a master album out of existing albums?
  • Bundled skins "Minimal", "Base", "PhotoBlogger", "Turtle" and the new "Tiger" skin now supports Web Locations.
  • jAlbum now has integrated GoogleMaps location tagging, see Edit->Location
  • jAlbum can now automatically embed xmp based copyright notices on all images (Settings->Images)

  • "Skin family" mechanism allowing skins belonging to the same family to share the same project settings. This simplifies moving from one skin to another without having to re-enter the same settings. This applies when moving from Turtle to the new Tiger skin for instance. Just open an existing Turtle project and switch to Tiger, then make the album again. ("Skin family" is a skin property)
  • Developers: New "include" and "exclude" attribute to ja:fileiterator element allowing a comma separated list of categories to be included or excluded, for instance <ja:fileiterator exclude="folder, webLocation">
  • Developers: New "category" attribute for ja:if element, simplifying testing on categories, for instance: <ja:if category="webLocation">. Please replace <ja:if exists="folder"> with <ja:if category="folder"> for better future compatibility.
  • Bundled with updated Java 8u131
  • Developers: new JDraggableList component allowing skin user interfaces to allow end user to arrange objects by drag and drop
  • Reverted to again presenting "extensions" directly under jAlbum's context menu. (Deleted rotate items for sake of space - available in the toolbar)
