Stockholm, Sweden (PRWEB) July 14, 2011
Photo sharing service and software producer jAlbum announces that its web site, jalbum.net, is now available in eleven languages, thanks to help from its users. "Our desktop software has been multilingual for years, but our site, the first thing you see, was only available in English. That was a barrier to many potential users, but now that's history," says founder and CEO David Ekholm. The web site is now available in English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Hungarian, Czech and Japanese with more languages to come within weeks.
jAlbum differentiates itself from most other photo sharing services by providing many different ways of presenting albums through user-developed "skins" and by not tying albums to a single site. Albums can be stored and shared on any web site. "For many people, this freedom is an important ownership aspect. No one wants their photos hijacked and copyrighted by some photo sharing service that goes evil. With jAlbum you're in full control of how your photos are presented and where they are stored" David says.
jAlbum started as a pet project in 2002 and has grown in popularity over the years among photo enthusiasts, organizations, and professionals. To date, over 32 million web photo albums have been uploaded to web servers around the world using the jAlbum desktop software. jAlbum is available as freeware for most of today's operating systems as well as for iOS (iPhone/iPad)
