[prMac.com] Stockholm Sweden - BragIt releases update 1.1 of "BragIt HTML Slideshow", a plug-in to Adobe Lightroom. It's for people who want to publish a collection of photos to the web like a slideshow, telling a story. Visitors to the website can scroll through thumbnails of all photos, and then start the slideshow to see large photos sequentially with annotations below each photo.
The viewer is in full control of when to see the next photo, and it does not require any Flash plug-in. Since the slideshow is based on HTML, it's fast and requires no browser plug-ins. The slideshow has a scrolling index page of all photo thumbnails, an identity plate, and an introductory description.
The full frame version of each photo can have multiline captions in a compact design to make room for photos in both landscape and portrait orientation with separate bounds for width and height. When a full frame photo is clicked, it advances to the next full frame photo. The plug-in has extensive choices for text labeling, fonts, layout and color controls.
New in this version:
* Support for Internet Explorer 7, thereby making it fully compatible with Lightroom under Windows, since Lightroom under Windows always renders web galleries with an embedded version of Internet Explorer 7, even if Internet Explorer 8 or another browser is installed.
* Better soft shadows under photos in both the thumb and full frame versions, adding depth.
* Several bug fixes.
Pricing and Availability:
You can download a demo version that is free to use as much as you like, but it is limited to 10 photos. For use with more than 10 photos, purchase an unlocked version for only EUR 10.
