When I am not taking photographs (most of the time unfortunately) I write software. I use Aperture to manage my photographs and SmugMug for storing and displaying my images. There is an export plugin ApertureToSmugMug which works well but I wanted a few more features and I have been busy developing a new export plugin to add those features.
I am now at the point where I need some beta testers for the plugin which comes in two flavours, a free ‘lite’ version (SmuginForAperture ) which does basic export, gallery creation, caption and keyword editing and SmuginProForAperture which allows the SmugMug ID, album and URL to be added to the image metadata after export. This allows Aperture smart groups to show all the images currently uploaded to SmugMug by looking at these custom fields.
If anyone has amy feature requests I would love to here from you and if anyone would like to beta test these plugins please let me know. The bad news is that they are SnowLeopard only (Mac OS X 10.6) and therefore only work with Intel Macs. The plugins work with Aperture 2.1.4 or Aperture 3.x.
If your are interested in beta testing the plugins email me at ‘support @ nzwidgets.com’ or leave a comment here.
