CNET Editors' review

JAlbum is a long-time favorite free Web album generator. There's no wizard to direct you through the process, but a quick look through the menus will be enough to get you started creating image collections online.

To begin, specify the original image folder, set the album-destination folder, select the images, and generate the album--it's really not more complicated than that. Using the integrated FTP client, you can upload your album to your Web site or you can use the integrated Web server to serve your album from your computer. The JAlbum site also lets you post your projects to their Web hosting service for free, as long as you don't mind registering your name and e-mail address. There are several great-looking templates and skins to choose from, with more skins available online from JAlbum.

Recent versions include a lot of new tools, most notably a photo editor for basic manipulations, such as red-eye removal and cropping. If you've been looking for a new way to post your photos, JAlbum is a great choice with an extremely easy-to-use interface and plenty of options to create the perfect album.

    "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.
