iPhoto '11 Export PlugIn example


This project is based on this old but super useful post which was great but iPhoto plugin protocols have changed a bit, furthermore Xcode is now completely different… this version addresses those problems and runs with iPhoto '11 using the latest Xcode4 :)

One step before running it with Xcode

Besides having iPhoto in the usual location off-course, make sure you have enough permissions:

$ sudo chmod o+w /Applications/

Why do you need to do this?

Because two things have been changed in Xcode project for easier debug:

  • is the executable of the debug configuration

  • "Per-configuration build products path" has been changed to /Applications/ so the bundle is created directly inside Contents/PlugIngs/ of (default was $(BUILD_DIR)/$(CONFIGURATION)$(EFFECTIVE_PLATFORM_NAME) )


Recent versions of iPhoto has at least three kinds of plugins: ExportPlugin, accountconfigplugin and publisher My goal is to create a publisher plugin for other services than Facebook or Flickr.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
