A self hosted solution to mobile client galleries/web-apps.
This Lightroom plug-in will let you publish and host your own web apps. Using Lightroom, just click the Pro Image Share Template, add your contact-studio info and use Lightroom’s built in FTP to publish to your own web host (Go Daddy, Host Gator, Blue Host, A2, etc.) This will NOT work with services like Photobiz, Zenfolio or Smug Mug. They are not just a host and do not give you FTP access to their servers. You can use the plug-in but hosting space and a domain pointed at it will need to be purchased..
