iPhoto can create webpage galleries but the jAlbum app had more templates, more options, and a similar price. Free.
jAlbum was updated regularly, worked well, and made attractive, professional webpage photo galleries with the click of a button. A few years ago jAlbum added online storage options which came with a price tag.
I didn’t need that online storage option but I can understand the need for a developer to monetize a popular product with many users. jAlbum today is even better, but there’s one component you’re not going to like.
It has a price tag. A hefty price tag (considering jAlbum was once free).
jAlbum remains beginner friendly, and still features the simple click and create gallery, but also does video clips in gallery form. And, yes, it comes with even more professional skins than earlier versions.
Creating photo albums to upload to the web is straightforward, though jAlbum has plenty of options to learn for thumbnail sizes, skins, page navigation, comments, captions, and so on.
I don’t know of a Mac app (also does Windows, thanks to Java; the ‘j’ in jAlbum) that does more for less. But I don’t know of a photo gallery app that costs as much as jAlbum, either.
There’s a free unlicensed option which lets you upload to your own website, but it features advertising, no support, and doesn’t allow for commercial use. The standard license is a one-time fee, removes the advertising, and provides support, but no commercial option. That’s reserved for the Pro verion, which regularly would cost double the standard license.
I like jAlbum, but I don’t want my photo galleries to be infected by advertising (unless I get a cut).
UPDATE: There’s a special promo going on which reduces the price of both Standard and Pro considerably.
