Editors' Review

+

jAlbum gives you the ability to process your photos into albums that can then be published online, either on your own Web site or on the jAlbum site. Once you've installed the app, you can quickly add your own photos, and then create albums to share. The program does the rest.

Pros

Straightforward interface: This program features a clearly laid-out interface, with tools arrayed around the main window to make them easy to find and access. Buttons at the top of the screen allow you to add photos, videos, or folders. You can then edit your images and add captions with just a few clicks.

Pricing structures: This app provides you with access to a service through the jAlbum website. If you have your own website, you can upload the albums you create directly there. But if you don't, you can use jAlbum to host your albums. Depending on which of these options you prefer and whether you want to use the service for personal or commercial purposes, there are different fee schedules available. This ensures that you're only paying for exactly what you need.

Cons

Setup: Setting up your account can be a little tricky at first. Tutorials assume that you already have an account; but when you download the app, you can immediately begin creating albums. What you do with them next, may not be immediately clear to inexperienced users, and the Help file isn't much help with this. But there is an Upload button at the bottom of the screen, and clicking that starts you down the road toward creating your online account and managing your albums.

Bottom Line

jAlbum is a useful and convenient service that, once it's set up, gives you great flexibility when it comes to publishing and sharing your photos. The flexible price structures allow you to pay for just what you need.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of jAlbum 12.1.

    "Very bad web site in terms of support - poor poor poor"

    July 24, 2012   |   By hbofinger

    Version: jAlbum 10.8

    Pros

    Package may be good - but their own web site is not!

    Cons

    Decided to buy their "Pro" version. They asked to set up user account,provide email, and create password. Then I purchase, paid the $39. To activate my account, I had to quick reply on a confirmation email I never received. So I figured I might have sent a wrong email address (they did not require a re-type of the email address). But now it turns out I cannot get support without being logged in, which I can't because I could not confirm using the email I never received. In addition, I can't activate the paid-for product. THERE IS NOT EVEN A HELP EMAIL ADDRESS PUBLICLY AVAILABLE.

    Summary

    I would not use them until they improve their web site. Once you actually paid, you should be treated like a client, not like someone who needs to be "verified". This stinks!

    "Outstanding online album resource for anyone!"

    October 27, 2011   |   By dominguez138

    Version: JAlbum 10.1.2

    Pros

    Easy to set up albums.
    Plenty of themes to choose from.
    Does not invade your image source - you choose the images you want shown.
    Easy to protect private albums.
    Annual cost is small and worth every penny!
    Don't need to be a geek to use it.

    Cons

    None that come to mind at the moment.
    have not had any difficulty with any of its aspects.

    Summary

    JAlbum is an excellent tool to capture any all photos you want to place in an album. Creating an album is so easy, unlike some of the other album creating software available on the Internet. Annual cost is reasonable for hosting your albums, if you don't have your own service. Go and get JAlbum - you won't be disappointed.

    "Nice software. Easy to use."

    June 30, 2011   |   By rozarius

    Version: JAlbum 9.5

    Pros

    Easy to use. The ability to batch process imagery is very nice.

    Cons

    Not enough free space available.

    Summary

    Our dance uses this program to upload pictures for club members to view functions or special occasions. It's a very easy to use program and works very well for what we need.
