WebAlbum is a lightweight software application developed specifically for helping you create online photo albums with thumbnail galleries.
The tool sports a straightforward layout that allows you to set up the dedicated parameters in a short amount of time. A multi-tabbed environment is implemented for helping you gain access in a fast way to the main features of the program.
You may build up a list with the images that you want to include in the album. Photos can be imported using the built-in browse button (the drag-and-drop support is not implemented).
WebAlbum works with GIF, JPG, and PNG file format, and offers you the possibility to preview the pictures with the aid of thumbnails, check out their dimension, and view details about the file location and size.
Other important tweaking parameters worth being mentioned enable you to add the content of an entire folder, remove the selected items or clear the entire list with a single click, arrange photos in a certain order in the album by moving items up or down, as well as sort images by filename, description, modification time, size, extension, or creation time (in an ascending or descending order).
What’s more, you can rotate photos to different angles, choose between several themes to add a personal touch to your albums, and alter the thumbnails in terms of size, filename prefix/suffix, border, image quality, shadow effects, and cropping options.
The original pictures can be tweaked by specifying the size, embedding text watermark (with customizable options for the color, alignment, font, and opacity), and adding image logo (while allowing you to modify the photo transparency and position),
When it comes to indexing parameters, you can set the page title, add a background picture or color, configure the thumbnail title based on filename, resolution, comment, and file size. In addition, you can configure tables and picture pages.
You may export the photo albums to a preferred location on the disk, generate thumbnail and picture subfolders, overwrite thumbnails and images, create ‘Autorun.inf’ files for CDs, as well as export data to HTML file format. You can also save projects to a file on your computer so you can import them for future adjustments and upload your thumbnail galleries via FTP clients.
Tests have shown that WebAlbum carries out a task quickly and provides very good output results. It remains light on system resources so the overall performance of the PC is not hampered.
All in all, WebAlbum makes it easier for you to create photo albums without having to possess HTML or programming skills, and is suitable especially for less experienced users.
