title: Lightroom to iPhoto export update 1.2
date: 2011-01-31 09:56:59

<div class="narrow-col">
<p>When Adobe Lightroom first came out I <a href="../lightroom-iphoto-export">wrote</a> a quick Lightroom to iPhoto photo exporter. The plug-in copies the selected photos from your Lightroom library to iPhoto. This weekend the plug-in got a well-needed update for Lightroom 3 and Snow Leopard.</p>
<p>The new version is tested on Adobe Lightroom 3.x and iPhoto 9.x (the one bundled in iLife &lsquo;11).</p>

<a href="" title="Download the iPhotoExport plugin from the Github repository" download>Download iPhotoExport v1.2.1</a>
<p>What has been changed?</p>
<li>The most important change is the complete rewrite of the AppleScript part, responsible for adding the photos to iPhoto. The old one was still depending on the Mac OS X Classic environment for which Apple has dropped support in Leopard.</li>
<li>Besides that, it got some small modifications to work well with Lightroom 3, like support for video exporting.</li>
<li>Lastly, the plug-in has been translated into English, French, and Dutch.</li>
<h2>Event names</h2>
<p>Ever since iPhoto added Events I would like to support these in the plug-in as well. Today the iPhoto API does not offer a way to organize Events. It's high on the wishlist but depends on when and if Apple will expose Events in their iPhoto AppleScript API.</p>
<h2>Source code</h2>
<p>As always the <a href="">code</a> for the plug-in is open source and freely available. Feel free to improve it when you know some Lua or AppleScript.</p>
