Want an easy way to make static HTML or Flash-based photo galleries? Try a free Java program called jAlbum. You can easily make online photo galleries with this program, or use it to make a photo gallery to put on a CD for friends and family. If you are interested in Flash-based photo galleries, try a jAlbum skin called BananAlbum. Features: - Easy to use. Just drag and drop an image folder onto JAlbum, select an output directory and press "Make album" - Flexible. Album appearance can be highly customized through use of skins (album themes). Use or modify one of the many existing skins or create your own album look by making your own skin! - Arrange and select images easily by using drag and drop in an Explorer-like user interface. Edit comments, rotate images and run slide shows off your local hard disk. - Share your albums over the Internet straight from your local hard disk by using JAlbum's integrated web server. It is as easy as clicking a button. Your viewers only need their web browser to view albums. - Publish the created album on the Internet in a snap with an integrated smart FTP and SFTP client with synchronization ability.
