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.

"Easy to Use, but got buggy in new versions"

October 06, 2011  |  By theunjake

 |  Version: JAlbum 10.1

Pros

Easy to use and looks great

Cons

Since going to shareware the program is buggy and has annoying licensing popups when you gallery is live and only live. I went back to 9.6 after I found 10.1 was slow to load large galleries and would sometimes hang up. Was fine going back to 9.6

Summary

Would still suggest to friends, but on the lookout for another freeware option again like it used to be.

No easy way (that I know of) to insert your own links.

This is a solid, useable website builder that I wish I had years ago.

"Clean and lean-gets the job done with minimum of fuss"

February 26, 2011  |  By outislands10

 |  Version: JAlbum 9.1.3

Pros

Easy to use on a basic level - numerous skins available to match your site's "look" - also, using your unique URL (from JAlbum), having a "show and tell" with friends, family and ... clients is dead simple.

Cons

No manual - online or off -- help is more of a "fill in the blanks" exercise, but this is a very small price to pay for an excellent -- and free -- program.

Summary

Would recommend JAlbum without exception as a basic pix gallery program.
