I'm interested in Windows and Mac software or a plugin (for Lightroom, Aperture, InDesign, whatever) for creating professional photo books that I can then export as JPEGs (or any other format that is open to me and not only to that software maker), so that I can do with it what I want (e.g. send it to a local printing service, create an online flash book, etc.).
What I'm looking for is something to help me make pages interesting, like having multiple images on one page, using frames, shadows, photo positioning, etc. to create a compelling book (a series of pages).
Lots of presets
Having lots of presets is a must. Presets being page templates, borders, captions, effects, etc.
No online solutions
Online solutions and software that is closed (only usable with the online service) are out of the question.
It is not important to me for it to have thousands of frames and effects, I just want them to look professional and not amateur.
If I can customize the effects, frames, placing of photos, etc., that's a big bonus.
