Default ShutterBug, Mac photo gallery software

ShutterBug, a mini CMS (designed for photo gallery creation, but used by its developer, XtraLean, to develop the Shutterbug web site) is very interesting.

They claim great ease of use, and it does seem that way. You choose a theme (45 are included, with more in development), drag and drop images and text (or enter text), add links, drag things around to suit, and the software keeps it all organized.

The software automatically resizes images (and thumbnails) for the web. It supports static display and slideshows (and they can be on the same page). To change the look of your pages, just select another theme; content and style are separate, and easy to change.

The results can be stored on your hard disk, uploaded to your .mac account, ftp to a remote server (I think) or WebDAV, or kept on your hard drive for local viewing.

Downloadable fully functional demo available (adds Demo watermark to your images). Cost is $34.
