Pro workflow ideas

    I’m a little late to the party, but I still wanted to give a heads-up about some iPhoto plug-ins you might be interested in checking out if you’re looking for ways to minimize your workflow. For the past couple of years, Ubermind has been developing Aperture plug-in for streamlining the workflows of pro photographers.  Now, we’re bringing that same technology to iPhoto.

    We currently have beta versions of four iPhoto plug-ins available for testing:
    [list]GalleryExport for iPhoto: exports to and helps manage Gallery installations.
    UberUpload for iPhoto: adds the power of FTP and SFTP exports to iPhoto.
    iPhoto to Picasa Web Albums: uploads files to Google’s Picasa Web Albums, with more functionality than Google’s own iPhoto plug-in.
    iPhoto to Archive: easily bundles photos into popular archive formats including .zip and disk image.
    [/list:u]
    If you’re interested in checking them out, go to www.ubermind.com/beta/, take ‘em for a spin, and tell us what you think.

    Ubermind, Aperture’s plug-in architecture is only weeks/months old, with plug-in extensibility introduced with Aperture 2.1.

    Do you mean Applescripts for Aperture?

    I’m confused.

    Aperture’s API added export plug-in extensibility with the release of 1.5, and we’ve been working on them since that time. Now, with the release of the 2.1 SDK, there are a lot more options available for third-party developers to play with, especially in the realm of plug-ins for photo editing.

    I hope this clarifies your confusion.

    Best regards.

    Indeed, I’ve been using Aperture export plugins for iStockphoto and SmugMug for a long time now.

    Thanks for your hard work providing plugins too, Ubermind. I used GalleryExport back when I hosted my own photo site, before signing up with SmugMug.

    It does. As a .Mac subscriber, gallery export plug-ins were off my radar because I use .Mac to preview books and other projects for clients. Never needed export plug-ins. Never looked into it. Blissfully ignorant. Until now.

    Thanks.

    Hey all,

    I just wanted to chime in on your discussion…

    We are testing Maperture Pro BETA currently which allows you to visually geotag your images, import tracklog data from a GPS device, reverse geocode location information, save location bookmarks, copy & paste location information as well as several others. If you are interested in testing it out and providing feedback, please go to:

    http://www.ubermind.com/beta

    Thanks!
