Smugmug has launched Mac Uploader – a solution that enables iPhoto users to share their iPhoto albums online in Smugmug's ad-free online community.

According to Smugmug, the Mac Uploader is able to upload hundreds of photos at a time with just a few clicks. It works with both Mac OS 9 and X.

A professional version is also available, enabling users to upload and convert thousands of photos into a virtual gallery with a single click. Features for selling, delivering and paying professional account holders are included in this version.

Smugmug users can customize photo albums, and are able to download high-resolution photos for printing.

A standard subscription to Smugmug is $29.95 (£16) a year, upgradeable to $49.95 (£50). A professional subscription is $99.95 (£53).

The Smugmug Mac Uploader is available online.
