What's great about this program?
This powerful program allows you to create full-fledged web galleries. Now it is possible to create a professional gallery using images and quickly publish it on the Internet.
The program has flexible settings so you can adjust the appearance of your web album or choose from ready-made templates and edit it as you wish. When you add images, you can add logos called watermarks to them. You can also leave comments that are automatically taken from the EXIF data.
JAlbum for Mac can rotate the images you add at a chosen angle and add links to them. These links open third-party files not related to the pictures. All the web galleries you've created are displayed correctly in different browsers, so you can save the images to your computer when you view them. JAlbum has its own server, so it is easy to share a gallery with your family and friends after creating it. On the official developer's site, you can download additional skins for albums and see how many photos are stored on the company's servers.
