You know, 43 years is a long time for anyone to be sitting glued to a computer keyboard but that's exactly how long I've been doing this (since 1976). Although the web hasn't existed that long I have to say that for the short time that it has been around I have never seen a piece of software that is as good as jAlbum. It is by far the best software I have ever used to create photo galleries. You can then view them either online, on a desktop or mobile device.
Now I’ll be honest, I rarely go for premium software. But I just couldn’t resist buying jAlbum. I test drove it and for the price and the features that come along with it; it is really a good buy. I will not recommend that you buy it (I'm not here to sell anything) but I will suggest that you give it a test drive.
The official take: "The jAlbum desktop application creates photo album websites from your images. Just drag and drop images (and videos) onto jAlbum, press "Make" and your website is ready to upload to your own site. Or to jalbum.net if you don't have one."
