Looking for an impressive way to show off your digital photos? Juicebox may be just what the doctor ordered. This free Adobe AIR app can be used on Macs as well as PCs running Windows or Linux and whatever platform you use to create your gallery, you can be sure that it’ll look great on both desktop and mobile platforms. The app has been designed specifically with online photo galleries in mind, and despite the fact that stunning HTML5 galleries can be created, you do not need to know a single line of coding.
One of the problems that faces anyone looking to create an online gallery is finding a way to ensure that your photo slideshows look good on a number of different devices and platforms, particularly taking into account mobile devices with smaller screens. This is not a problem with Juicebox – you can simply choose a design and layout that you would like to use and it will be automatically scaled to suit different screen sizes. From an end-user’s point of view, navigation is made wonderfully easy thanks to support for not only mouse and keyboard controls, but also touch screen navigation.
The beauty of Juicebox, aside from the fact that it is so easy to create great-looking galleries that can be viewed on countless devices, is the everything is just so simple to get up and running. You do not need to worry about resizing images as this is all taken care of for you. If you have already uploaded images to Flickr, you do not need to spend time downloading them and then re-uploading them: they can be used in their current online form by Juicebox.
There are some gorgeously simple yet effective gallery layouts to choose from, and all of the necessary code is generated for you ready to copy and paste into the code of your web site. If your demands are a little higher – such as the ability to add background music to your galleries or the option of creating a random playback order – you have the option of upgrading to the Pro version, but for all intents and purposes, the free version is perfect for most people.
