YuetPhoto - mobile photo album & slide show

mobile photo album & slide show

I wrote this mobile photo viewer in Nov 2005. I still want to add more features to it, but I have not time to finish them. Now I'd like to package this v0.1 version for you to at least have the slide show features on your mobile phone. It is ideal for creating mobile java photo albums, and distribute it on internet. It is tested on both motorola V360 and E398. It should work on any mobile phone which supports MIDP2.0, including cell phones by Nokia, Sony Erission, Samsung, etc.

Features at a glance:
- photo slide show
- view photos in full screen
- auto rotate photos to fit the screen
- English & Chinese interface, switch language instantly. It is possible to add other language, if you would like to help.
- view photos stored in jar file
- support png, gif and jpg format
- options to set slideshow speed and number of loop.

How to create java photo album?
- prepare photos that fit the screen size of your mobile phone.
- Download and unzip the midlet jar file into a dedicated folder.
- Name each photo as photo1.jpg, photo2.jpg, photo3.jpg and so on. For png or gif file, just replace the extension jpg with png or gif.
- Put all the text files into photos/jpg, photos/png and photos/gif in the dedicated folder, according to the file format.
- Change following parameters in the META-INF\MANIFEST.MF file:
1. MIDlet-Name:
2. Album_name:
3. Album_desc:
4. png_count:
5. gif_count:
6. jpg_count:
- Save the file and zip everything in the folder (not including the folder) and rename the extension from zip to jar.
- Install the jar file in your mobile phone.
- For Windows users, you can use Winzip or any other zip program to zip/unzip the file.
- for Mac users, use "stuffit expander" to unzip the jar file and use the archive function to zip the files.

Why use YuetPhoto v0.1?
- Everything is in one single jar file, makes it very easy to distribute your photo albums.
- It is compliant to MIDP 2.0, so it should work on any mobile phone with MIDP2.0 support.
- No special permission is required to run this midlet.

You can distribute your java photo albums using this midlet for noncommercial purpose. If you want to use this midlet for commercial purpose, contact me please.

I've been looking for something like this for some time now. A few questions:
What's the max number of pictures that can be used in creating a YuetPhoto? I first tried an outrageous number of 100+ and keep getting an "failed invalid file" on install. Then 10 and it worked perfect.
What would it take for an application of this type to scale down larger pictures to fit the 176x220 on a V360? What I'm ultimately after is a way to add a large group of pictures to a slideshow (like the V360 "Photo Album") and then be able to remove the individual photos of my TF card. Resizing the pictures is not a direction I want to go.

Great job on the site, & thanks for the seemingly endless hints, tips, tricks, & advice!

joey1979, I am not sure what's the maximum number of pictures. The suggested number is around 50-60.

I will update the app to support viewing photos directly from phone/card memory in the future.
