I have a lot of links and a lot of photos on my site and would like to check to be sure there are no broken internal or outgoing links on the site. Is there a tool or programme anyone can recommend for Mac?

On our SEO Tools [webmasterworld.com] thread, a post of Tedster mentions a tool that can be used to checks links. The tool runs off the web, therefore it does not matter whether you are using Windows or Mac. You can then export the links to .csv to your computer.
Check the above thread and search for the message number #4401232.

Do you have the stomach to go into Terminal? (I personally hate it with a passion, but it is sometimes necessary.) If so, you can install and run the w3c link checker locally. There's a longish list of options that you don't get with the online version.
:: detour here to check something ::
If your files are static html using relative links, you can do it simply by dragging in the file. Easier than typing the whole path! Otherwise give the "localhost" URL that you use with MAMP. (This is the part I just checked.)
Caution! If you run the w3c link checker locally, it will come through with your own IP. You may need to poke an additional hole if you normally block "libwww-perl", which unfortunately is part of its UA string.
