Editors' Review

Users with large numbers of digital photographs will need a program to manage them. For those who do not need a program with too many features, JAlbum for Mac could prove to be a suitable solution, since it performs minor photo editing and management well.

JAlbum is available as a free program with some limitations; additional licenses begin at $34 and unlock more features like Web uploading and storage. During the installation of JAlbum for Mac the user is prompted to buy a product license. Support is available for updates, and the program prompted the installation of one update after the first loading. The program did not have instructions, but its menus were well designed and could be used by anyone familiar with other photo management programs. Selecting files and individual photos for loading was easy and completed quickly. Users can create new albums for any number of photos or events. The program also allows these to be laid out for presentations using a number of formats and presets. In addition, users can do minor photo editing, including rotating, tinting, and red eye removal, among other fixes. Once work with the photos is completed, users also have the ability to play their images as a slideshow. All of the features, while basic, perform as intended.

With its expected features and basic operation, JAlbum for Mac functions well. This program is suitable for Mac users who do not have heavy file management or editing needs.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 15.0
  • New 30 trial days for everyone! Free update for anyone having a current support and update plan or active Premium or Power subscription. Discounted updates for users with older licenses. (See status under Help->"About jAlbum" inside software or on your profile page.)
  • Supports 360° images (Tiger skin + new property panel under Edit while editing 360° images).
  • Supports hard links! Drastically (20 times) reduces size of album folders by using hard links for original images and resource files (Toggle under Preferences->Album)
  • New JPEG reading code capable of properly handling several odd JPEG variants and color profiles. (TwelveMonkeys)
  • Now offering four new extra high quality image scaling algorithms: "Blackman-Bessel", "Blackman-Sinc", "Lanczos" and "Mitchell". jAlbum's image scaling should now match the best alternatives in the industry. See Settings->Images. Credit to TwelveMonkeys for these.
  • New folder property panel allowing quick and intuitive selection of folder specific titles, descriptions thumbnail images and theme images as well as allowing easy selection of theme image crop focus.
  • Theme images may now be selected separately from representing folder images. (Updated Tiger skin demonstrates this, and more skins will follow)
  • The whole code base, including all extensions, refactored to use Java 8 features and more performant constructs. The result should be slight performance enhancements, including somewhat lower startup time
