To create a photo album in Sandvox

Drag your photos from the finder into the photo album

Your default album will look like this

You get a thumbnail page, and you can go to any photo from there

The enlarged photos look like this

You can navigate forward, backward, and back to the thumbnails, but they don't have a filmstrip built in.

You can get a fake sidebar by adding the images into the sidebar inspector

You need to add the images, turn the sidebar on (and only the images), and then make links for all the thumbnails to the pages. I wouldn't suggest doing this for multiple albums.

jAlbum is a more flexible photo album generator

Drag the same group of photos onto the jAlbum application

Pick a Skin and Style, and press Make Album

Pick a Skin and Style, and press Make Album

After it's finished, select preview

After it's finished, select preview

Here's the front page for this skin

It has a 'subselection' of the first image for the title section, and then a bunch of thumbnails below. This is highly configurable (as opposed to Sandvox).

An individual photo fills the page, but you have options (as the viewer)

And this is with the filmstrip selector shown.
