Getting Started

Juicebox is a complete web image gallery solution. Use Juicebox to add fully featured image galleries to your website, with no coding required.

To create a Juicebox gallery you can use our desktop application JuiceboxBuilder, or you can use a Juicebox Plugin for Photoshop, Lightroom, WordPress, Picasa and more.

Installing JuiceboxBuilder

We recommend JuiceboxBuilder as the easiest way to create Juicebox galleries on your desktop.

To install JuiceboxBuilder, do this:

  1. If you don't have it already, download and install Adobe AIR.
  2. Download and unzip Juicebox to your desktop. JuiceBox-Lite can be downloaded from here. The Juicebox-Pro download link is emailed to you upon purchase.
  3. Double-click the JuiceboxBuilder.air file in the download folder to install JuiceboxBuilder. Installation issues? Check here to resolve.
  4. Run the application to build your first gallery.
  5. Note: MacOS 10.15 (Catalina) requires an additional installation step

System Requirements

Juicebox Galleries work on any modern browser:

  • Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer 8+.

  • Mac OS X 10.6 or higher. Note: MacOS 10.15 (Catalina) requires an additional installation step.

Web Server

  • To display Juicebox galleries you need a website and a way to upload files (usually via FTP). We do not host image galleries on our servers
  • Password Protection and Image Download features require PHP version 5.2 (or higher) on the web server. The vast majority of web servers run this version of PHP. To find out which version of PHP your server runs, please check with your web server tech support, or follow these instructions.

Upgrading to Pro

You can easily upgrade an existing Juicebox-Lite gallery to Pro at any time.

To convert a Juicebox-Lite gallery to Juicebox-Pro, open and re-save the gallery using JuiceboxBuilder-Pro. Alternatively you can replace the jbcore folder in the existing gallery folder with the one that comes in the Juicebox-Pro download web folder.

Please note that JuiceboxBuilder-Lite and JuiceboxBuilder-Pro can be installed and run alongside each other on the same computer.
