Album

Available in the Chrome Web Store

Album is a browser extension that detects the images on the current page and shows them in a list that can be exported in three different formats:

In all cases, the data is copied into the clipboard and can be inserted into any text editor by pressing Ctrl+V. Mosaic and carousel snippets can be inserted into documents, blog posts, virtual learning environments or any other application based on HTML content. Before pasting the code into a rich-text editor, be sure to set it in plain text mode (usually represented by a button with the symbols <> or html).

This is a free software project. You can contribute to improving this browser extension by reporting issues, translating it into other languages or sending pull requests. Thanks in advance!

Album is currently implemented for Chrome/Chromium and can be installed directly from the Chrome Web Store. We want to implement it also for Mozilla Firefox in the future (developers help wanted!)

Special thanks to the excellent work done by Galleria.io, the open source engine beneath the image carousel. In addition to the basic free theme used by Album, they provide also with other nice and featured themes at cheap prices.

Note that Album does not copy images nor any type of files: it just deals with URLs pointing at remote resources. Issues with the images (slow loading, file not found...) are often related to problems with the origin of the images.

This project was developed in HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. It makes use of three open-source libraries:

All these components can be obtained with Bower. To download its latest releases install Bower on your system and launch bower update from the project's root folder. Components will then be placed into /bower_components and referenced by symbolic links from /chrome/lib.
