The Turning Gate (excellent & more sophisticated LR web gallery alternatives that I have used for years for our photo galleries)

For Macs, Linux, AND Windows, try FreeFileSync, but do NOT install bundled software Opencandy
Camera/Lens Rentals (great rates) and Second-hand Equipment
Contessa Photo Adventures' Blog (Articles on different
aspects of photography, from compositional and technical
elements, to travels and stories, to post-production,

(look for updated versions of these to reflect new program versions)
