Relationship btwn. Reviewer and ProductI am a very satisfied customer, no more, no less.


The full scope of jAlbum is greater than I can address because I do not take advantage of all of its features.

Basically, this product provides a fast, easy method to create sophisticated web albums, for users not versed in the (to me) complexities of writing code.

jAlbum offers web site hosting if desired. I do not use that and so cannot comment on it other than to point out the option.

Interface.jpgThe main interface.

Settings.jpgThe interface to tweak settings (if desired). It is not essential.

Who is this app designed for:

Those who would find it daunting to create their own web site from scratch. Those who would find it too expensive to pay an expert to create a web site. Those whose time is at a premium.

The Good

jAlbum is simply a very easy way to construct a web site for people who cannot, or do not wish to write raw code. It is a boon to those or who haven't the time or inclination to construct a site from scratch, or who cannot or are unwilling to pay the fees of an expert to do it for them. It is available for Android, iOS, and Microsoft Windows.

The needs improvement section

Almost everything on this planet could be improved but jAlbum brings out regular enhancements.

Why I think you should use this product

It saves time, it saves money, it saves headaches, support is good. There is a range of pre-built free templates available, these templates are easily modified to suit individual tastes. There are some templates the use of which costs a small fee. Typically, these are more complex, or offer additional, more sophisticated features. Personally, I use what is free and am more than satisfied with that.

Much of the process can be executed by simple drag 'n drop. Many of the grunt-work details are taken care of in the background, for example ensuring that thumbnails are produced, optimized, and sized appropriately. Also, I find it extremely easy to make changes and additions, to expand existing sections, or to add in new ones. If desired the entire web site can be uploaded to the host from within the program itself.

How does it compare to similar apps

Depends on one's skill set. I found it easier by far than using tools from, e.g. Adobe (which are very good but require more time to master than I can give). My experience is that building with jAlbum is infinitely easier, and the results more stable, than were several other 'out-of-the-box' solutions that I tried.


Draw your own conclusions from this. My wife asked me to create a web site for her. I was appalled. I struggled through, trying to resurrect my rusty knowledge of HTML etc. I floundered around spending all of my spare time for about 3 weeks. This produced a viable site (sort of) that looked as if the proverbial tribe of monkeys had been at work on it. Later I read about jAlbum. In 3 days (not weeks!) and working on it only sporadically, I produced the site that my wife now has. It is here: The world won't swoon over it but it's far better than I could manage alone. My wife is happy, and a happy wife makes a happy life.

One is becoming utterly sick and tired of this. Enuff already. For Pete's sake, #GiveItARest. They need to stick to their knitting. I get it that they might not approve of the democratic election of this President, but, quite frankly, I don't want it rammed down my throat at every opportunity and I don't give a damn about their insular bigotry.
There seems to be a whinging Loser mentality and propaganda exhibited by the anti-Trump brigade that would surely not impress anyone capable of independent thought and who wishes to live in a free democracy.

Yeah, but how do you feel about that  ;D

Hogan and Cody are happy to see each other
-Carol Haynes (March 10, 2018, 11:26 AM)
If that's Hogan's happy look I'd hate to see him when he's sad!  ;D

Would appreciate some reports on beta version; download on first link.

Selection works fine for me (on 1920 x 1080 screens with no scaling).

You could make a request on Polycount
Cody's a parrot now? Or is it just that he can't spell 'pirate'?

Another thing I could do is show hints for the list of keyboard shortcuts for region select mode in the zoom panel overlay, to make it easier to remeber them..


gives no answers, TOSSER

We don't behave like that around here!
Please think before you type.

No but I'm prepared to be bored for the sake of DC  ;D

And, again, thanks for all the work you put into it.

What a coincidence! That's exactly what the psychiatrist said to me at the hospital, after the doctors had patched me up after I had unwittingly drunkenly attempted to walk through a plate-glass mirrored window during my 40th birthday party.
It was a full moon that night too.
On reflection, I think he was right.
Obviously the the curse has come upon ye, so that's Shalot.

I think it was a lunar tic.
Not to worry, it's just a phase you're going through.

Wow nice.
But not altogether polite to moon DC  :o

Long no see, here's v2.4.4
Thanks!   :up:

Also, could it possibly be this?

Users of Malwarebytes, a popular security solution for Windows, reported on Saturday that the software's RAM usage and CPU utilization was going through the roof.

One user published a screenshot that showed the Malwarebytes Service process using more than 19 Gigabytes of RAM, and others soon chimed in and revealed that Malwarebytes used a lot of RAM and CPU on their devices as well.

It took down my machine, ate up ALL the memory, and required a restore-from-backup solution.

I'd put it on my todo list, but at this point my todo list has been concatenated and is scrollable for miles.
  ;D  ;D  ;D fair enough!

should be fixed now -- you should see up to 1000 results

Searching: Would it be possible to have an option so that pages 1..n could be concatenated and scrollable, rather than n separate pages?

If you can't find what you're looking for follow the instructions at the top of the results page for how to do a more thorough search.
Thanks, I was just looking at the speed but I'll keep your advice in mind.

Buttery smooth  :)

Searching for something in the forums (e.g.  in 'Entire forum' each of 3 tries seeking 'donation' or 'Photoshop' or 'mouser') turned up only one page of 30 references, but very quickly  ;D

I have solved the problem.  Only took 6 hours of screaming at the screen.
Finally, you're behaving like a professional  :Thmbsup:

Ah, I see. You might well be right, though it goes against the grain to admit that I might be at fault for not having perceived that on first reading his comment. I wouldn't like people to think that I might be one matchstick short of a full box. That wouldn't dovetail well into my own sense of self-identity. I would prefer them to think that I was a cut above the rest.
No need to bridle. The plane truth is that, in order to shine, you must ignitor go down in flames butt neither burn a hole in your pocket nor singe a finger.

Target, meanwhile, thought he had espied a different kind of band, and, on closer inspection realised that the word "band" might have an elastic quality.
That's a bit of a stretch! I think it was just a wind-up.


just what is it you're implying?

That your actions not always appear above board?

Ah the old distraction technique… ever seen him pull a rabbet out of a hat?
