/ BananAlbum Documentation
This documentation applies to the latest version of BananAlbum: v6.1.
There are various tools to create a BananAlbum. It is most commonly used as a skin for the free album generator application JAlbum. For Mac users I've created a basic application, the BananAlbumCreator.
BananAlbum has many possibilities and is highly customizable. You can create single albums but also complete portfolio websites with a nicely designed menu structure. A BananAlbum can easily be implemented within an existing site. You can customize BananAlbum to make it perfectly suit your needs. Choose between various styles and typefaces, choose your own colors and define the position and size of the thumbnails and images.

JAlbum (WIN and MAC)
JAlbum is free gallery software that makes personalized web albums of your digital pictures. JAlbum offers the most possibilities to customize your BananAlbums. It contains a full featured settings panel as well as a BananAlbum tab to easily configure your album. For example: You can change the sizes, choose the position of the thumbnails, modify the colors, add comments and titles, etcetera. The BananAlbums you create can be easily uploaded to your website. If you haven't got any webspace you could use the free hosting at JAlbum.net. For more info: www.jalbum.net.
BananAlbumCreator (MAC only)
For Mac users I've created a basic application, the BananAlbumCreator, which enables you to easily create BananAlbums simply by dropping some images onto the application. The Creator has a basic preferences panel which enables you to change the size of the images and thumbnails, choose your own colors and enable or disable the comments and titles.
With Bananr you can plug BananAlbum to your Flickr account and use their system to organize your pictures. Visit bananr.com and enter your user- or photoset id. It offers a default album view, but you can modify the colors.
