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 17.0
  • Completely rewritten review mode featuring thumbnail navigation, image zooming and multiple image comparison (1-6 images)
  • Way faster and better behaving zoom control installed in both Edit and Review mode
  • Better integration with Review mode and Explorer and Edit mode (hit Space to review selected image(s))
  • Reads EXIF metadata from video files as well (MP4 and MOV)
  • Supports camera date/creation date for mp4 and mov videos too
  • Has new "Disable color subsampling" option under Settings-Images-Advanced. Will produce even better looking JPEGs when checked. Currently only applies to images with compression quality >= 90. Disabling chroma/color subsampling increases file size about 17% but doubles the horizontal and vertical color resolution of images.
  • Explore mode adjusted for lower CPU usage = better performance
  • Now runs on Open Java 11 on all platforms. Earlier, the Mac version was using Oracle's Java 8 and Windows version using Java 9. With Java 11, Oracle's Java is under a commercial license. We therefore moved to the open source "Open JDK 11", which should be working as well by now.
  • Remembers width of folder property panel if "Remember last window position and size" is checked under Preferences
  • All versions has reduced footprint due to removal of unneeded Java code
  • Default video resolution for generated videos bumped from 480p to 720p
  • Now capable of correctly importing incorrectly written Windows comments and titles
  • Rewritten Mac file chooser integration (runs on Java 9+)
  • Embedded browser now accepts all certificates (avoids certificate related errors)
  • Moved "Clear project list" to top and added confirmation dialog
  • Updated bundled Tiger, Zigzag and Minimal skins
