[] Kitchener, ON, Canada - XtraLean Software is proud to announce the latest release of its website creation tool, ShutterBug, Version 2.5 for Mac OS X. Version 2.5 offers a customizable, easy-to-use PayPal(TM) Shopping Cart feature so ShutterBug users can add an online store to their websites, easily and quickly. This version also adds a new Before/After slideshow feature for creating some unique special effects for images, Looping and Random Ordered slideshows, plus other user interface improvements and minor bug fixes. ShutterBug 2.5 is a free update to registered users and is available for immediate download from XtraLean's website. New users can try the free full-featured demo or buy a registration number for only $39.95 CAD.

The new shopping cart integration allows users to easily integrate PayPal with their ShutterBug sites to set up an online store with no technical no-how required. The new shopping cart interface and tools give users the ability to start selling prints, artwork, or any other products they want to sell online, with the control and flexibility to customize the appearance and functionality of their store pages to suit their needs.

Users can add Buy Now or Add to Cart buttons to their product images, modify and update the product details through simple data entry, and choose which details to display in two optionally different views of the product. Advanced users can even add custom code to integrate a different third-party shopping cart into their ShutterBug site. Users require a PayPal Account (which is free) in order to accept online payments from their customers.

The new slideshow features offer users even more power and flexibility over how they present their photos online. The Before/After effect allows rollover functionality to present a before and after image of the slideshow picture, as well as optionally including rollover images in the thumbnail album. Other new options also include Random Order and Looping to give users even more choices of how they want their slideshows to run. Other enhancements include better handling of text zoom in the browser, user interface improvements, and minor bug fixes.

ShutterBug V2.5 is available immediately and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or better and is a Universal Binary for both Intel-based Mac and Power PC support.
