There are many types of album building software such as those shown on the Virtual Photography studio site. It creates a great way to show off your albums without having to create a physical version.
Tools and Applications
As well as the building software, many website building sites also offer tools to help you use your site more effectively. For example, you can use tools to help you get the SEO or Search Engine Optimisation right for your site. It makes the process easier, especially for those that are not familiar with SEO, and tells you what you need to add. You can also get tools for blocking spam and optimising your site for mobile devices.
By using these and other tools, you can take a lot of the work out of creating and running your website.
