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 build in FTP to publish to your own web host (A2, Go Daddy, Host Gator, Blue Host, 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.
